    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!

    Noob Mistake

    Near Pendleton, Oregon, I parked for a "Kodak moment" on wet ground with the bike leaning downhill:


    As I focused, I watched my pride and joy slowly tip over because the kickstand sunk into the ground. I had to unload it to release her from the forces of gravity

    The placement of that decal indicates either previous experience with a napping bike or an element of prescience; in either case it is an apt message given the situation.

    Kevin, that hurt my feelings . . . . yeah, right! You bet I've got experience and hope to get more!


    You gotta, admit, the tire and the final drive look pretty good. C'mon . . . . work with me!

    Sand!

    I was headed to the rally in Hamburg when I found this sand trap in east Texas somewhere.
