Unhappy End o' summer ridin

Playin on the ole KLR in the woods and didn't turn out so well
Was crossing a log and made it over the first one and hit the second one not quite head on. they were laying parallel to each other.As soon as you finish the first your on the second.The results of not maintaining a good line



Be back ridin in about 5 to 8 weeks

ready for some fall foilage ridin

Man, I hate that happened to you. Was at the local dealer today and the owner had done something very similar and broken his right wrist. Hope it all heals good.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
