Be Careful on 25
« on: May 20, 2016, 12:01:19 AM »
Went Down on the BMW tonight. I am Fine. a little scratch on the elbow and my shoulder is a little sore. I was in my mesh jacket. No scratches on my helmet.

I was going around 25 when I found a previous wreck location. It was in the middle of a curve. the road was covered in antifreeze and Oil dry. Took a pretty hard low side. Near as i can tell i will get new lower crash bars, maybe new handle bars, New hand guards, and at least a new left side box.

Good to hear it's just the bike that needs repair and not you.

Also happy not to be typing we were the last to see you alive last night.

Hope your shoulder is good enough to push mowers around today.

Glad your okay. The wreck must have happened after 5 P.M. after I came down through there.

Glad you're okay! And hope Maria is up to snuff (and stays that way) while the Beemer is down.

Well the shoulder is pretty painful. Other that that I'm good.
I was following a truck so I was only going about 30. Not that 30 can't kill you. The curve is the last left hander going away from Leeds before you drop into the valley. That really nice banked one. It had enough banking that I stayed in the road and stop right on the center line instead of going to the outside guard rail.

Thanks everyone.

I we go back to the motorcycle worm hole theory. Then lists of places are in the way home from Trussville. You will never know how many unless you go to trussville and come back on a motorcycle many many times.

Though I can think of many better place to start from so you can test that hypothesis.
