started great.

ended like this





always wear your safety gear!!!!


my wife went down into a gravel road we were on a paved curve and the bike slid out from all the gravel on the road. she is ok, got a minor break in her shoulder, so a sling for 4-6weeks. the bike only has cosmetic damage, so some new parts and a custom paint job and she will be back on it.

Wow, that must have scared the sh*t out of you. Gravel always made me nervous when I rode. I'm glad it wasn't too bad. I hope she heals up nicely. Ride safe! :peace:

she will be in bed with or with a sling for the next while. the hardest part is my son who is 16mos. it will be 6weeks tomorrow since i had back surgery, and chasing him around for even a little while, put me in pain as well.

Sorry to hear about your wife, but at least she isn't too bad. Now she can get the bike pink to match the helmet.

Hope she has a speedy recovery.

ya that road was total worst case scenario for a rider, especially being my wifes first bike and first season riding. she just didnt have the reaction time. mind you i had to put my bike into the on coming traffic lane to miss the gravel which was a huge risk in itself. imagine if a truck had been coming the other way. i woulda been killed.

You sound like me. I never carried any insurance on my motorcycles, just the liability and medical. I figured if I am dumb enough to wreck the thing, I can pay of the replacement or repair. Fortunately, I never dropped a bike that was moving. Only on one rain soaked intersection did I drop a street cycle. I did crack up an enduro while off road. But nothing broke, just had to readjust the handlebars and the controls on them. :roll: How lucky is that? :whistle:
