Yes it is, I let Petrolburner take it for a ride and he was impressed with how snappy the power is. I think I'll leave the motor in the state of tune it's in now and work on the suspension next.

Ohhhhhh AJ This is not what I like to see when I'm catching up on a thread that I think everyone is having a good time in. I'm glad you weren't hurt.

Who needs a title?

I gotta say, this was the most amazing camping trip ever!!! Thanks for letting me tag along, guys! It was fantastic to meet you all! I just read this whole thread and I really feel sorry for those who missed out on our trip! It was a little cold. But hey, it's March! Mike, Jeff, Jay and of course my Trevor, I can't wait for the next adventure! (Yes, I'm crazy enough to sing up for more of this....)

The very fine red sand, mixed with that nasty slick road spray crap simply doesn't allow even a moment's loss of concentration.
Glad you're OK Apple Jam. I know right where you went down and I've seen more than one nasty accident in the same spot. I've been sideways in 4x4 in that area before in similar conditions and I drive like my grandmother on ice.

The deicer mixed with gravel can be as slick as the black ice they use it on.

Glad you guys had a great weekend!

Eek Holy wha!

AppleJam how's your body?! The nice part of winter riding is all the extra padding but yikes! Blood? Bruises? Limping?

I've been riding to work everyday since...but there is no way I'm crossing a pass for quite some time still. I've been wondering what it would be like and now I know.

I'll have some more pics soon...might be easier to send them to Petrol than figure out how to post 'em myself.

Stoopid enough to crash,
But smart enough to wear all the gear, all the time

Click the Share this button, then grab the HTML/BB code, and cut and paste that here. You need to hit the button with the mountain and the sun and then paste it in that window, and then repeat! OK nevermind, skip the mountain with sun button, when you grab the link from flikr it already has the img script, which is why it is shown twice on my post below

You get the idea.

Then there is my helmet and riding gear.

I'll be lucky if it's not totalled, the way stuff works these days.
That sucks! Sorry to hear about your purty KTM, but happy to hear you are safe!

It sucks, and I'm safe, but the bike was never really purty in my eyes, just a chisled looking and useful tool.
Ducatis are purty, except the old Multistrada, and the new Mutistrada doesn't appear to as good a tool as KaTy M.

The first thing my wife says, when I finally break the news to her...
"That's what you get for riding it so much this winter"
This is no excuse for the moment of inattention that caused this accident, but she's right. The odds were stacking up against me.

I had already put over 2600 miles on this bike on lots of crappy roads since my 47th birthday on February 6th this year.
I'm still very glad for all those very good times


More to come, after a lengthy pit stop.

think different when the bug bites her. Crappy roads or not, life would suck if I didn't have riding to clear my head.
