    Asphalt nap

    This is me.. during the 2016 Fontana Gateway..Stupid rookie mistake. All the training and experienced gone in less than 1 second. Hit some gravel at a sharp curve. Target fixation, panicked, everything you could do wrong on a gravel patch recovery...I did it. Ended up with a broken leg...Very frustrating.. Believe it or not, the only damage to the bike was a scratched engine guard. Thank you MOA Member Jose Negron that helped me in the recovery of the bike and calling for help. By the way, DeLarome inReach is worth every penny. Worked like a charm.

    Glad you had relatively minor injuries to you and bike...even though after having a broken leg, maybe not so minor!

    On the lighter side, seeing your screen name, was some pitch and yaw involved?



    Thanks for sharing...a lot of folks claim that never happens...but it can and does

If you have a photo that you want to share of a motorcycle lying down (napping, dirt napping) post it here!
