What's the diagnosis on that Beemer. I didn't like the way they were looking at the steering head/fork area..

jim, here's the damage report

left body panel is split. i was thinking it might be ok as is, but it's also broken where it connects to the panel above it. thanks to whoever put that zip tie on.


skid plate not quite up to the impact. that header is pretty much flattened.

looks like a lot of force. i think this may have happened when the suspension bottomed before i got launched. i came over a rise and there was a water channel crossing the trail about 10 ft down with an embedded rock sticking up from the channel's berm. the rear shock compressed at the same time the rear wheel went into the channel. the rock took out the skid plate and then the berm took me over the bars. that's my story and i'm sticking with it

here's a pic from above - the engine guard used to be summetric. the left side was pushed back and the right forward.


you can see the guard tubing was split above the shifter


the front turn signals gone and the left mirror.

Ouch!

Thanks for the report Dale. I hope everything is repairable like new!

What about the high speed shake, mentioned on the ride home??

So a big Dipper with a large stationary rock, and lots of speed "We had lift-off" Eh!

i just got word from ben; he got hurt real bad that he'll be out for about 3 months due to cracked shoulder socket...

he still has to see an doctor if surgery is needed but i hope all he needs is mother time, a comfy sofa, tv remote and pizza delivery.

we have too many injuries, i tore a shoulder muscle, but the other guys are not as fortunate...miketoon, eggroll, dannyg, ccer and ben are all casualties from our rides. ride leaders and participants...put a lull, let's all take it easy for the next month or so.

Hey Jim....I am hoping the wobble is just a little "Fork Twist"...it comes on at 60+mph and gets worse during left hand sweepers......?????
