As much as I hate to admit it, I was one of many? who crashed at the Gaulley Bridge Railroad crossing on the way to the rally. My crash was on Wednesday, 7-9-03 at about 2:30 in the afternoon during a rain storm. This was one slippery crossing and yes, I have read David Hough's book and I will read it again.
Good news is that unlike some, I got away without injury thanks to some good gear (Aerostitch) and lots of luck. My poor KBOM went KBOM and she is hurt badly. Thanks to Willie Doolittle of Battle Creek, she got patched up and I was able to ride her home.
Willie is a good guy.
Anyone else out there willing to admit the agony of defeat?
Mark your maps if you have not, this bridge is on route 60 on the east end of the bridge east of Gaulley West Virginia.
