Someone backed into it, or kicked it over last Monday at Arkansas . Heard a noise at 6:30 AM and went outside to find Debbie's bike on it's side.
Snapped off end of front brake lever and mirror, plus minor scratches.
I was able to fix the mirror mount with JB Weld.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Glad you guys were not hurt in this tip over. Of course either situation is complete bullsh*t if someone backed into the bike - how about they come and get you or leave their info.

Now if someone kicked it over - may they have a broken foot - dislocated knee - tripped and fell - dislocated their hip - and slammed their brain dead head into the ground causing a massive brain hemorrhage.

The way I figure it - that would have been better than you catching them - and kicking the life out of them - at least if you found them on the ground dead - not your fault - you don't have to get a lawyer to defend your actions.

The jugs probably saved you further damage. That would've been $6,000 in damages had it been a K bike.

The right jug prevented the fairing and turn signal from making contact with the concrete porch slab.

It sure isn't a BMW but it is way cool. Honest Charley with a 1937 Flathead V-8 Ford. It only has 300 miles on it.

Thinking about the upcoming ride with friends to Death Valley in March, when I received this photo from my friend Walt. Taken in Wildrose Canyon back in '02, the dark clouds in the background? Dumped snow on us and we followed the lone car's tracks that had preceded us through the higher elevations...

Looking northwest at the Continental Divide from the southern side of Loveland Ski area.

And yes, it was cold that day.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Once the weather gets cold, my mind turns to hunting. I spend allot of time in the woods and have thousands of random pictures of different things I see when I'm there.
Here are two different mornings, both equally gorgeous....

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

A few photos from years gone by arrived by email from a long time friend last night, taken in the early 80's on a long weekend ride criss-crossing the Sierras shortly after most of the pass roads opened. The photos are "flopped", printed from negatives from the wrong side, but what the hell, brought back some fond memories, and not so fond ones, like I'm sure that leather shrinks

Heading west on the Tioga Pass road, Mono Lake in the background.





Note the "Sonora" road sign reversed in the background, and the custom boxer, that started life as a 1980 RT and Reggie Pridmore's shop then in Ventura converted it with what I think was a Hannigan fairing, could be wrong about that,



Note how the bikes on the sidestands are leaning the wrong way,

Um, maybe not. I rode that RS for 20 years and put maybe a 1/4 million miles on it, rode it hard, and put it away wet. It was time to move on, it was a fine machine, and if BMW could offer a bike with another fairing that was as effective as that one, with today's technology, I'd be tempted. Looking back, I got everything out of it that it had to offer, the memories, like the ones about old girlfriends, are better kept as memories, as the reality might not be so fine.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Drought, what drought? Topanga Canyon, in the Santa Monica "Mountains" above the PCH in Malibu, a fine road to ride early on a weekend day, but with lots and lots of rain, come mudslides and boulders the size of small houses might be a problem.......although another "Super Bloom" in Death Valley, just in time for the annual ride in March.....could be nice.

Warm temps this last week with highs 60 to 70 F. Had some rain 3 days ago to wash the salt off the roads so I got out yesterday and today. Sounds like rain tomorrow and maybe snow Friday.

Cedar Bridge Madison County, today.

Walked away. 1 # rib.
A car did a wrong way turn into a one way street right in front of me. Missed it by a bee's dick. Unfortunately the bike hit the kerb and kept going into the tree. I think my chest hit the kerb too.
