Yeah, most of the damage is cosmetic. That seat cowl is barely hurt - just two small cracks to take care of. The Woodcraft case was great. I had the thicker skid pad on, and it took a small beating but did what it's supposed to.

Unfortunately, the parts I ordered shouldn't get in till after Torrey.

If you need a bike to ride for that trip you can take mine... that is if you promise not to lay it down

I'm telling ya, duck tape fixes everything.

Seriously though, important part is no injuries. I was very glad to see you walking around and already checking on your bike when I pulled up to the scene. Accidents happen and thats why you have good gear. What Marcus didn't mention was that down the hill where his bike ended up is a graveyard of parts from other bikes and cars that have gone over that same hill. You can see some of the debris and roadway markers left there by other crashes in the photo's.

This was just a last minute improvised run since it sounded like with Utah canceled Andrew wasn't going to have a ride. The Saturday ride was awesome, it's just too bad the day before and after couldn't have been more of the same. Sorry again about my stupid sticking throttle preventing us from hitting that CA 58 on the way back.

I just realized you guys went to my old stomping grounds. I grew up 30 miles SW of Bakersfield.
