Wife only got bruises cause she un-arsed the bike right at the beginning of the fishtail. I really should have followed her off the bike and I'd probably be in the same shape. But I rode that big ole horse into the pavement, a split second decision that bit me.
We were riding back to AZ from MI in the middle of all the fall colors (OCT), I had been bow hunting in MI and she flew up to ride the colors back.
No one to blame, came over a hill, hit a giant repair patch (tar snake), suspension was moving due to the steep hill-crest (just before the 1 mile marker to Pie Town, NM on rt 60)...torque just rolled the tire/rear end out sideways.
My advice...DO NOT think about blueberry pie while you are riding to pie town!!
and thats all I can offer. i remember the whole thing up-til I got slammed into the pavement. I was walking around all busted up, the SO was smarter and waited in the bush for EMT, heheh. I thought I was fairly ok although I knew some adrenaline would have to wear off before I really knew. I was right about that...EMT said i repeated the same thing 10 times on the ride to the hospital and I don't re that at all, yikes!! scary!!
It'll bug you for a little while but don't dwell on it. To me its sort of like dropping the bike out in public, its going to happen, used to embarass me but now I just shrug it off and smile, cause its certainly going to happen again! I had trouble keeping that big K1200LT upright sometimes with my pro-NBA 5'8" altitude with legs to match
ps...wife wants to ride again, we sat on the K1600GTL and I think I can actually handle that bike two-up even with the weak side, but I'm not sure about that just yet. shes got a convertable now and its ok, not a bike of course but it is a nice car (bmw). We're from Utica by the way, raised my kids there, wife was born/raised there.
