These pictures were taken this AM on Hwy 70 at St Augustine pass on my way to White Sands. It is not readily evident that the wind is blowing at a steady 35 MPH and gusting at this pass up to 60 MPH. Moments after these were taken was a moment of disaster. I hopped on , rocked her forward off the centerstand and at the same time was hit broadside by a large blast of dust , dirt and wind which almost instantly took me and her to the pavement. The RH miiror snapped off and broke the glass , lens and bulb socket. Scratched up the RH case and gave me a heck of a muscle strain under my right arm. I had a horrible time picking it back up into that wind. Well now it truely looks like I ride !
And after I got her back up !
