Riding. I've mapped a route to Deals Gap and back that uses no Interstates and hits a bunch of historic roads and ADV trails.

Repair estimate for the Tenere: $5600.00.

Includes both forks which are slightly bent.

I was surprised to hear that, to say the least.

Maybe. I have the full range of motion back, but it still hurts when I try to grip things. I can't pick up a glass of water or turn a door knob. I went for a ride on the Spyder today using a Crampbuster and had no issues, so maybe that's an option.

Wow. That is a pretty healthy chunk of change for what seems like mostly cosmetic damage. I'm guessing you did not notice any difference in handling?

Will insurance cover 100%?

You do realize there were a large number of "gripping things" as well as GI Joe kung fu grip type jokes running through my head?

My place. 10am. Be there or be square...

That's awesome. I'm thinking of taking my CRF to Monogahela/Seneca Rocks Area this summer. Did the Dragon last summer and in 2008. First time I went was '95, it's gotten to be a lot more popular area since then.

Is it really cooler? Also how about elbows & knees? I have a pretty high deductible on my health insurance, so I'm not against spending a little less to prevent the e-room trip.

Not really. I mean, the bars were bent and the forks made odd noises upon compression but it handled as normal.

Insurance should cover it minus my deductible.
