Holy crap! Where did it fall from? Is that a track on the shelf just above it? Or is the road waaaay up the top of the pic?

Presumably the last shot is after retrieval (how the hell did you do that?). I don't see any damage, other than the pannier...

Did you jump off before the S10 started its trip down the hillside?

The road is just 2 meters above tenere, you can see the green line there. I flew/rolled all the way down (abt 7 meters). Luckily bike stuck on the rock, else... I'm still thinking of kinetic energy of 300kg flying down from 7m height...

S10 Damage:
Left H&B Xplorer pannier
MRA windshield
Scratches on crashbars, left hand guard and few small on left top plastic.
broken left footpeg

Rider + gear damage:
Gortex waterproofed pants got hole...
Arai helmet got few scratches, visor needs to be replaced
my left elbow upgraded with metal screw (actually I rode 700km back home before I went to do X-ray and found out that I got fracture).
$ to get the crane + tow truck

Not mine






Plastic frame for headlight and screen support broken, both panniers stuffed and pannier racks bent and rim dinged by hitting a power pole sized log lying in the long grass after he missed the 90deg corner at the crest of the hill and was off camber as well, he was trying to miss a couple of bikes that had already slid into the gutter at the side of the road.

Ok I can see where it woke up with a giant headache, but where was it sleeping?

And who was the poor bloke? Did it just slide or did it do cartwheels?

Up at the top of the embankment facing the wrong way I did not see the crash myself but I was told he did a great Super Man impression it was on a Bike shop ride from Capalaba in Brisbane out to Queen Mary Falls. I was told damage total was up to around $7,000aud

Cheers Rick

Bluhduh ok, ok It was me!

What Rick hasn't said is that after I played "superman" the bike did a backflip and landed upside down trashing everything above and forward of the handlebars in the process. ( Apologies to Wasp, but as good as your windsreen adjusting bracket is, it wont support an S10 landing upside down at speed!)
All credit to Yamaha the bike fired up first push of the starter, and after some enthusiastic application of zip ties and 100 mile an hour tape we rode for about another hour on the same roads before heading home at highway speed for another hour or so.
In summary:
.I need to slow down (crawl before walk etc, etc.)
.The standard tyres are crap once of the blacktop (Mitas EO7s now fitted)
.If you damage the standard rims, ditch em! as I understand it no one in Aus. can repair the tubeless rims fitted to the big girl (tube type rims now fitted)
.Crash bars work, SW Motech bars fitted, one bent, no damage to bike where protected by bars.
.Pannier frames will protect the rear of the bike in an "off", however panniers just make nice pillows for the bike to have a sleep on!
.Get an ABS off switch
.This bike is one tough son of a bitch!

My thanks to the guys who were with us that day, the bike should be on the go within the week, so I'm game to have another go( a bit slower this time though!)
Also thanks to the team at Bayside Yamaha who've done a great job in rebuilding the big girl.

Now Mr Grinder, do you understand the new instructions?

Tough luck mate. Glad you are Ok and ready for some new adventure.

What the hell is going on in this country?

The South Africans can fix rims multiple times in the middle of Kickatinalong and we can't fix 'em anywhere?

We need to get some cricket mentality into that little problem.

Where are the rims?

Cheers
Graham

Hi Grinder, One way to do a first post Glad to hear the Beast is almost back on the road as well, must be another ride coming up soon, just in the middle of fitting my ABS off switch and went for Tourances for mine have to be better on dirt than the worn out Battle wings.

Maybe the Screen adjuster as well as this item may help.


Cheers Rick

Very unexciting sleep - in the safety of the garage.

Preview:


No crash bars installed, but the tip over guards protected the bike just fine on the flat concrete floor. It did suffer from the little tab on the kickstand breaking off (probably because it was on my damn boot).... but I always use the end of the kcicstand to extend and retract it.

Learn from my mistakes... always bump it against the gear, extend the kickstand... double check that damn stand and then gently lean it over.

Nice pictures of the sleeping beaty, and a very comforting thought it can withstand this kind of dumping without needing a U-Haul ambulance...
