Well, Leo put his bike down last weekend during our ride to Mt. St. Helens. Here's a couple of shots of the damage done. Kids, don't try this at home.

The head stop didn't stop in time and the left side controls dug into the tank pretty good.

Leo's pink got pinched between the handlebars and tank. Ouch!

I was worried about his bars, since they got bent half an inch or so but he managed to ger her home safe and sound.







Lesson learned: Be extremely careful when doing a low speed left on an incline, especially on gravel! It'll get you if you're not careful.

Ha ha ha, thanks Jeff. Now everyone knows I have graduated!

Anyway, the bar has been fixed (thanks Jon and Brent @DucSea for speedy part and advice!). The tank can be pulled easily, not a problem.

Yep, lesson learned. Get off the bike and push. :) Don't try to play superman, especially when you can only have one foot down. :)

Hold on a second, does that suit make me look fat? LOL :D

Oh man Leo can't believe you're going to stand for that :P. You didn’t even get to post your crash pictures yourself. And I think the first rule of posting crash pictures are never show your face :). Just show close-ups of your battle wounds and motorcycle damage. Hee-hee.

Thanks for letting me cruise around Fremont on your Monster. It was the first time I have ridden one and I was very impressed. BTW, did you get the shift pedal fixed?

You can beat up Jeff for me on Saturday. Let's give you the new post of Sargeant-at-Arm, and Jeff violated whatever posting rule.

The shift pedal is still bent, but I am ok with it, so I'll just leave it for now. The tank needs to be pulled, though.
