The bike was actually dropped on purpose in this occassion the steep downhill fire road ended suddenly and there was no other way to turn back other that laying the bike on its cylinder and pull it around.

(I have dropped her many times, but I usually pick her up instinctively before realizing that it would make a great photo...)

Have posted these before, but...

...not in this thread. This happened on a test ride. Major bummer.



It's pretty bad when the first thing you think of after dropping a bike is "where's my camera?"

No pain in that crash. Just a flop on the rocks. No tears, just a very bizarre pattern on those pants.

I fell in the sand. It was as soft as powery snow, which made for a very soft landing, but a difficult recovery.

I was straddling the bike while taking a picture of the view, lost my balance, and became the subject of a picture myself...

Here is a fresh one. It was stuck standing up. I had to put it down to get it out of the ruts.

Heading up this trail I aimed the bike just to the left of the big rock, but hit the big rock instead. The bike climbed vertically up the rock like a tank. I flew off and rolled down the slope. The bike did a complete flip and landed on the rocks. The bike probably would have cart-wheeled down the hill after me but the handlebars fortuitously caught a root (visible in the picture) and that pinned the bike in place. The bike suffered a torn seat and dented rear fender.

Looks Beemers are spread all over the country, in the US that is.
Here in the Netherlands the most of them are with the black side under.
