Good idea! I will buy an R1200 so I get re-use the rack Sadly, it doesn't appear to hold true for the dittle bikes. But, when are you placing your order for Jesses' ?

I don't know but I need some new riding boots, the SIDI Adventure Rains have finally fallen apart at the seams after about 40K miles of beating.

Oops! in Marlinton WV

Left Thursday for a weekend of riding in WV. Took the GL1800 Goldwing. It is my wifes choice for longer distance. THe GS was heard sobbing in the garage as we left. Great ride out in passing showers. Spent the next couple days riding while based at Marlinton Motor Inn. Saturday evening about 1730 we decided to check out some cabins for rent for future trips. The place is called "Jerico" cool relocated Civil War era cabins to rent. As we pulled into the driveway for the main office there is wooden bridge abour 25' long about 10' wide uphill. As we rode across the bridge a plank about 3/4s the way across was a higher than the others. As we crossed that plank the rear end slid about 75d to the left. I didnt have much time to react , but steered into it. At that point the front wheel just pushed to the edge of the bridge.Hit the 4x4 ribbon board and chain guardrail and we were down. I was on my back asking my wife if she was OK. She was holding on and leaning to the high side still seated on the now prone bike. When I went to get up I could hardly stand up it was so slippery with algae with water on top. Busted saddlebag, rear fender, scratched front fairing, busted highway peg and punctured valve cover (oil into stream below) finally we got the bike upright. Got out my tools. Removed the valve cover. cleaned it up and used the JB weld I always carry in my tool kit to patch it up. Let the valve cover sit on the radiator to speed drying. Reassembled and taped up the hole where one of the vavle cover bolts used to belong (aluminum tape is a must for any tool kit). topped up the oil. At least we stayed on the bridge! I kept telling my wife if we had been on the GS we could have rode off the bridge up the stream and on to the next adventure. Rode it home no leaks. About 2k in damage!

Wow! Glad you and your wife are ok. At least you know a palace that can fix it for you.

On a side note, my wife and I stayed in one of those cabins two years ago.

We had a great time at the cabin. Nice hot tub and fire place.

Sorry about the mishap, glad you were able to get it sorted though.
