I picked the bike up from Classic last night. I decided to take the back way to Kalkaska. While going across sand lk road I hit some soft sand and it threw me over into a log that had fallen into the road, I hit it going about 20mph. I'm ok but my left wrist is sore.

I smashed the left turn signal and cracked the top fairing piece just below the gas tank.

Thats a bummer. I hope the wrist heals up fast and good, our riding season is short enough.

As far as the fairing goes, it was bound to happen at some point, you just got it out of the way. right?

Now you have a custom rig.

Unfortunate news. But atleast no major damage to the bike or you. You dont really need turn sinals anyways

I got the bike home today a day late. It started second kick after sitting for the winter.
Went for a little dirt ride....oh how I missed that feeling!
I cruised by your house yodatoy, It was easy to pick out with the bikes in the garage but the dr was missing today so I figured you were out playing too.

I know the feeling, I just got mine out last week.

My KLX just rolled over 17K today, bought it with about 12.5K 2 winters ago.

If it was the one with the MASSIVE tent in the front yard and the very messy garage then you found the right place. If you came after 2:20 in afternoon I was on the bike on my way to work. Just got home about 30 mins ago and put some chicken in brine so I can smoke em up tomorrow morning.

It was a great day for a ride! And the food was great too, I had a great Reuben at the mushroom in Mesick . I ended up having an unscheduled off on my way home, now my shoulder is a little sore... I love dirt biking

I even got to ride a sweet KTM I am going to have to get one.
