And then I went boom!

Special thanks to Lawrence. I admit I am both sad and glad that his camera was fogged up. Not sure I want to see what happened from a 3rd party's view but here is some vids that lead up to the exact moment I crashed.

I will take you up on that drawing... lol.. I tried to ride it out for what felt like forever... felt like I had it reeled in several times and I never really thought I was actually going to crash or highside til I was flying off the bike. Never had an oh moment... too relaxed or too stupid to know it was coming ....

I think uhalcma he had the worst luck that day.

Gopro should supply the ****ing dissicant inserts with the cameras.

I have learned if I only open and close them in the AC I don't have the fog problem.

Yeah,that really sucked for him.

I agree. I moved that camera, with the water proof case, to the tail of the bike and had no problems with fogging again. It didn't like the hot air induction it was getting by being on the front fairing.

The MRI is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5th at 11 A.M. it will take 2 hours. Everyone ask from whatever religion, deity, superstition that you subscribe to that no surgery is needed.
