    At the time of the accident, we were trying to follow Poolpawpaw who had, up to that point, been playing it pretty cool, but who decided to absolutely haul ass down this piece of sh&t road. I mean he was flying. My only thought just before it happened was: "these f$ckers are going too fast for me!" so I had just given up trying to keep up, and slowed down, creating a wider gap so I had time to avoid hitting Horroshow and his bike, which were both cartwheeling down the mountain. It is testament to his gear that hshow was not injured. It was not pretty. I will be ok with not riding on that road again!
    Wow that must have been a hairy stretch of road!

    Harry, it is an honor to follow your lead!

    Thanks for all the well wishes, the bike should be back up quickly, the smashed speedo is the only part I need that I don't already have. It looks like the last day was fun too - beautiful pics! Can't wait until next year, or possibly August, to ride with everybody again!

    I have a mirror and might have a clutch lever in black, they are yours if you need them.

    You see in this world there are two kinds of people my friend.
    Those with loaded guns, and those who dig.
