Ha ha ha. It happens.

Yep, alone.

Deep sand and a rut. Plus going too fast. I suspect 30 to 35. She caught, started to wiggle and before i knew it, i was airborne.

You can see the tracks better in this one.

Redford and I were suppose to take that road but the Park Ranger (law enforcement) who rides a 990 Adventure R warned us it was way too sandy.

How much air did you catch? That could have ended badly. Glad you're still with us.

Glad you are ok.

Did the weeds and brush cushion your fall. Donít see any hit and tumble marks on the sand.

Looks like the front washed out.

Just flicked off into the bushes. Typical crash on the dirt, everything is slower and the dirt softens the blow to the bike and rider.

30-35 is too slow for big bike on sand like that. Faster = more stability. While I know it would have made the crash worse, it probably would have prevented it. Glad you didn't crunch anything!

+1 but easier said than done on a fully loaded big bike. DAMHIK

At first I couldn't make sense of your tracks in the sand leading up to the drop. You low sided, slide some, your head caught traction in the sand and then stood up the bike and highsided it?

Yup, looks like he lost the front. Least his collarbone is intact! Ha

It was that third track in the sand that baffled me. Then I realized t was the boxer engine with big jugs sticking out that created that. An inline or V-twin bike would've probably been all lowside TKO.
