Bruce- After all of my time and effort farkling it out, I took a downhill, left hand, off camber, decreasing radius turn a little too fast a couple of weeks ago and took the bike into a very large fence post. The bike and I both slid through the grass before the bike hit the post, and thankfully, I was clear of it all and only had a bruised knee. The bike is totaled. I was riding beyond my skillset which was unfortunate, because I loved that bike. We were at a rally here in Mid Missouri, and two other guys went off the same corner at the same time I did. One bike was totaled, one was scratched, and all three of us had mainly bruised egos (and my bruised knee). I am looking at replacing the GT with a GS, and will take the MSF ERC course and put in some track time before I'm cruising through the foothills of Missouri again chasing guys with more experience than me. So I'm parting the thing out. It breaks my heart.
