And here I thought dirtbikes were indestructible!

Hotnanas proved me otherwise when he nosed dived into the face of a double at Rio Bravo last night. I wish I would have had a video on my chest protector, the 4 front flips the bike made would have been awesome footage!

Glad you're alright dude, minus the face and a little pride.

I don't know if Jolene is capable of whooping his that bad. Dude has a 5 inch bruise across his forehead and bridge of his nose....not to mention the strawberries on the rest of his body.

At least he got a free pass for next time.

Helmet did it's job for sure!

The craziest thing about this crash is my back pain that has been ailing me for a year or so is gone...I think the "balling up" to fetal position and the impact provided me with a chiropractic treatment. Of course your mileage may vary.

You and I need to swap "hotnanas goes Crash" stories. He definitely likes to crash in grand fashion.



Cliff... 4 flips is badass. Glad you're okay, brother.

TOO FUNNY....You look it over for anything else? I thought I saw a bent foot peg, possibly bars, mid pipe, etc. At least the bike was still running when it came to it's resting place before it bogged down because of that minor kink in the pipe.

already emailed Jardine for the midpipe...we will see what they say. new jardine slip on system is $160 on ebay...stock header + midpipe + can is $75 right now...I have a stock midpipe and can = Free

i noticed the footpeg was bent...i could deal with that. i need to loosen the forks and rear shock...both might be F'ed...but both might easily be fine as well. I will know for certain by the end of the weekend.

bars could be bent...not worried, I have other pro tapers with a different bend that I'd like to try.

All in all, I might get off easy at $46....or have to put $300 more in...lesson learned...when someone offers to record video, allow them.

EDIT: one thing that i can't figure out are the two holes on my bar pad...i'm thinking that might be from the center and right screws on my helmet holding the visor.

I also have two bruises on my thighs which I imagine is the bar on my way over the bars.

I still need to drop the forks and check them out but so far I just need the subframe that I already ordered. I'm going to pull the motor and replace the bottom end by the end of next week. While the forks are off I will install an aftermarket triple that i picked up to replace the lower triple that has broken stops. The upper triple is also adjustable. Also I have some larger radiators to install. By the next enduro, the bike should be top notch. Also while the bottom end is on the bench I'll adjust my rekluse to engage at a higher RPM.

I think she cleaned up well.

I have to admit I just started feeling comfortable and over my head. I hadn't touched that line either. I hit the jump just left of it and treated this one the same. I think I over jumped it, but I honestly am not sure. The bike was in 3rd gear when I got home.

Sorry to scare anyone. I really felt bad crashing like that and was totally embarrassed.

It hasn't made sleeping easy, normally at this time I'm out like a Rock.
