    Oops -

    Had a get off on Friday afternoon - the woman driving the Toyota ahead of me had burned out brake lights. Didn't hit her, but did a low side lay down with about 15 feet of separation. Hard to say what happened, it was over in a nano second - but I think I locked up the front wheel... and went down.

    Fortunately I had a helmet, protective pants and armored mesh jacket - a sprained wrist, some very minor road rash and a few aches is all I recieved.

    I need to replace the Clutch side mirror assembly - the damaged fairing pieces can wait until the snows of winter leave me with lots of time to futz with replacing, repairing and repainting.

    The bummer, is that if I'd been riding a linked ABS version, I would have been fine.

    Food for winter thought.

    Still aiming for the campout.

    Utah -

    The land of broad city streets, funny underwear and astonishing vistas.

    I'm figuring on riding to the Dells on Saturday as well.
