I thought TKC-80s were the solution to every GSA problem ...

How are you and how long did the extraction take?

A Little sore in the shoulders, as I took the hole head on in 2nd. It was hidden in a water bar, with a tricky climb right after so I was focusing in on my move after the bar, when I let the biggest dump in my pants go ever. The extrication was lucky. I thought I was going to have to do some hiking and make a call, but If you look closely the left pannier bracket kept it from going all the way in. I straddled the back and gave it a mighty tug up and onto the Right side. From there I was able to drag it inch by inch away from the rut. It took ever an hour and my Back is sore today!

I'm not understanding how you got caught in that action. And where were you? Were you solo?

I was on an up hill incline of about 30% or more,2nd gear , there were ruts on the left and several water bars, on the last water bar near the top there was a tricky climb up and out to the right and some deep ruts on the left. I moved to the right as I crested the mound and there it was. Last second I goosed it and the front hit the far side and bounced to the left and ejected me.
The bike slid backwards into the rut and fortunately became stuck on the left Panier bracket and the right peg.
I was alone, and I recoverd the bike by myself.
Hope this explains what you needed to know'

Yeah, posted before but still funny (to me anyway :p)







I plan to pester my riding pal into taking some good ones of the 1200 this year, the crappy video frame grabs just don't properly represent how idiotic and foolish I am
