As a long-time rider, I've had soooooo many different bikes from small-bore to big-bore, 2-stroke and 4-stroke, on and off road, and everything in-between. @Bryan Bosch and I have been raving about these new mid-size, do-it-all bikes, and they seem to be perfect...a little too perfect, as I found out on our last riding trip. These bikes have started to lull us into a bit of complacency due their tame mannerisms and being so smooth, balanced, light, and overall very rider-friendly. Well, I got bit by that complacency last weekend (as you'll see in the GoPro video that @Bryan Bosch was able to capture) and what 70+ horsepower looks like when you twist the throttle just a little bit too far and those tame mannerisms all but disappear into a fit of rage.
So, thankfully there was a KLR650 with us on this trip as it was the only bike that I'm sure I could have ridden home on. Off to the local Urgent Care facility for some x-rays and pain meds. Six sleepless nights with long days void of coughing, sneezing, or laughing without falling to my knees and crying out in agony, it's getting better...now I can almost laugh out-loud when I watch the video and continue dreaming of the next time I get to ride and all the things I'll do differently.
