Another great day. I am starting to get used to the SE and it just more and more fun. A really fantastic group that was spread out all over the place.






Way too clean...




First time I had seen an F800GS out and about... very impressive... or maybe it was the rider...



Not too hot, not too dusty...

Something Sognix didn't tell you:

We didn't feel like keeping up with the FFs and all those big orange things so we tried Lynx. For some reason I wasn't sure. We slabbed down to another portion of it.

At one point things became, well, shakespearean:



To ditch,
Or not to ditch.
That is the question.
Whether it is noble to throw the bike to one side
Or ram the side of Sergio's bike taking out his right leg...

I ditched the bike.

Remember I was trying to get through this unmarked? Well, I took the skin off my elbow. That's gonna look good in a cocktail dress.

I will say I was surprised. I added 5mph to my usual speed. It helped.

Missed all you guys who didn't show at Newcomb.

Car Accident Pics

Here are my pics of the car accident that held us up on the way home:

IMG_0031-c
Yes, the car is on it's roof, facing the wrong direction... in more ways than one!

IMG_0030-c
That's a lot of tire marks! Looks like someone was going fast and lost control!

There was also a crashed truck on the side on the road just behind me on my left when I took the pics.
