Well I crashed

    I had the sidecar off getting ready to put bike inside for winter clean up that was really need on both sidecar and bike. few miles form house I totaled the bike with a friend following me.  LEO seems to think road conditions was a big factor. Time will tell. While I wen down hard slide all that I am ok.

     Adjuster is coming out likely today. I have already made a deal on anew one and it is on the way. call into Hannigan to get in line for a new paint job the match bike.

  New tug will be another RGU but the 2020 is called a Limited now just a name change. Payton loves her Dragons and chose the new colors because she said it look like a Dragon. So here it is .  All the gear all the time good idea. Coming on strong heading this way.

It is good to hear you were not injured.  Well, maybe your pride was hurt.  It just goes to show that no matter how experienced you are, accidents can happen and that is when protective gear comes into play.

 Tried to post a shot of the bike but the sight just won't allow it might work this way. Helmet , gloves, armor padded jacket boots and chaps all protected me well.

Glade your okay.  If you want.  Ask adjuster if you can buy the bike.  I've found you can make alot off of fixing or parting out bikes.  just my two cents.

How big is the image?  The picture size limit is 2 MB. That's posted in the picture upload section.  I'm open to raising it but I don't want to hear complaints about slow loading because larger image sizes will slow things down [even though we DO use compression software].

Like the others, I'm glad you're OK. Glad you had all the proper gear on. Perhaps that's the good thing about cooler weather, we're more likely to have all the gear on. But it's too bad the sidecar was off. It probably would have kept you on the road with the rubber side down....

 She sure does.  Wife is pushing me to get the new one all finished faster. But some things take time.

    I am not preaching. When you ride you decide what gear you wear and when.  I have for most of my life riding chosen to wear the gear. With grandchildren And others around me ,there is an example to set.

     My crash was nothing to joke about. Went down at 55-60 hard and slid a good 100 feet on asphalt then gravel and ditch. The only scratch on me was a small one on my nose from glasses. Leather gloves, Boots, chaps, Armor inserts in jacket  and helmet all played a part in walking away. The marks on this helmet are not dirt That is my head head dragging the ground. I will of course keep riding. Already rode one of my other bikes.  This just reinforces our choice in this house to wear the gear.
