...and BAM a guardrail...

My name is Megan, I am larryboy's daughter and this is my first ride report. Hope you enjoy.

This is the video of the song. Listen to the song while scrolling through the pictures. It helps tell my story.






Song Title: Oh My God
Artist: Kaiser Chiefs

Time on your side that will never end
The most beautiful thing you can ever spend



But you work in a shirt with your name tag on it
Drifting apart like a plate tectonic





It don't matter to me
'Cos all I wanted to be
Was a million miles from here





Somewhere more familiar






Too much time spent dragging the past up
I didn't see you not looking when I messed up




Settling down in your early twenties
Sucked more blood than a backstreet dentist
It don't matter to me



'Cos all I wanted to be
Is a million miles from here



Somewhere more familiar



Oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home




And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home






Great rulers make for greater glory
The only thing growing is our history
Knock me down I'll get right back up again
I'll come back stronger than a powered up Pac-Man




It don't matter to me
'Cos all I wanted to be
Was a million miles from here
Somewhere more familiar
Oh my god, I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home




And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home




Oh my, god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home
And oh my god I can't believe it
I've never been this far away from home







MORE COMING!! Thanks for reading!

Good times with your Dad

Although your lead in has me a bit nervous, Miss Adventure, you are on your way to becoming a great story teller. Great song, great pics, great time spent with your pop. Great job!!! I have two younger girls and I hope you keep them close enough to share just this kind of thing.

Look forward to seeing and listening to the rest of your adventure.

Continuation of ...and BAM a guardrail...

Here is the rest of the ride report. I'm not going to use a song on this one because there is to much to explain. Enjoy!

My dad [larryboy] thought it would be a great idea, since there were some straight parts on the dirt road, to teach me how to drive.



There I go!!



We were almost to the Sheet Iron, we were only about 15 miles away from camp.



...and then BAM a guardrail...





I was doing so well for about 8 miles. I took a corner to wide stared at the guardrail and then there I went, straight into it.

Here is what I did to the bike.



I completly totaled my dads motorcycle.



And here is what I did to myself.



My leg got pined inbetween the motorcycle and the guard rail. It swelled up pretty fast and as of know there is a HUGE bruise on my leg and I still can't feel parts of it.

We waited for about two hours before some people came our way. Two guys on some BMW's stoped. These guys weren't going to the sheet iron though. They asked us if we needed any help. We told them it would be great if they could go to camp and get somebody to come out to get us. So they did. About an hour or so later two guys from the Oakland Motorcycle Club came down. I guese the guys on the BMW's told the club guys that we were part of the club. So, when they came down to help us they were pretty pissed. We were on a side car so of course we couldn't get it in the back of a truck. They gave us some water and left. We waited and waited and waited...



Out in the hot sun we were STUCK!!

A guy named John stoped by. He was going to the sheet iron. He gave us an umbrella. That made us very happy. (Thanks John!)

Once we realized that nobody came for us we had to think of a way we could get there. My dad started to get his tools out and work on the wheel.



We decided to put a tube in the tire and see how long we could ride it like that...







Right when we were about to go two more BMW guys stoped. They asked if we needed any help. We said no, but they still stuck with us. We rode about 5 miles extremly slow and the two other guys stayed with us. They then realized it would take us all night so they left. About a mile down the road once they left the tire blew and we went left. By then we were out of water and to tired to try anything else. I couldn't walk very well either.

We decided that the next truck we saw we were going to stop it, ask for a ride and leave the bike. The next guy in a truck stoped and happened to own all the property around us. He hide the bike for us and gave us a ride into town. We were saved!!

More to come later!! Don't stop reading!!

Can't see the pics

Bummer you got tweaked your first time driving. We rode yesterday, and stopped off for breakfast at a Shari's... heard the song "Larryboy" and instantly thought of RM's vid of the KLR/Suzi swap.
Heal quickly!

edit: and now I can! Damned Gov't servers...

nah. That's all bolt-on stuff. Heal yourself up quick and don't let it bum you out. You just learned the principle of "target fixation". I'm an expert.

Good job on the report. Now you have a story to tell the rest of your life... and that's what motorcycling is about.

You and the bike WILL heal... but you dad will need therapy for the rest of his life. I hope you can afford it!




Now get back on the horse that buck you off and keep riding.
