Glad he's OK.
Best wishes to him!
I got a call about 30 minutes ago from Bubba letting me know that he had low-sided on CA-18 about 30 minutes before that.
He's okay. He was fully geared. A couple of 'raspberrys' from inside the gear, but otherwise, he's mechanically 'sound'.
As for "Dot," well, Bubba says she took a beating. He has some pix, but there's currently no way to share them. I'm sure he'll post them when he gets a chance.
Yes, his new helmet is wrecked. It did it's job and for this we all have to be thankful; fresh custom paint or not.
He describes the low-side as the whole bike sliding out from under him in a tight 360-ish-degree turn...both he and the bike slid into the curb...Dot hit the curb, jumped up, then came down on the saddle. He says she's pretty beat.
He told me he's going to be off-the-comms-grid for some time, when he asked me to post about his get-off, so...I offered to be his conduit, and he agreed that was a good idea.
On that, he requests that any private messages you have for him be sent to me by e-mail or PM (please don't send PMs to his message box on the .oRg as they won't be viewed for quite some time). If you want to get him a message, please pass it through me.
He's pretty shook up, disappointed, and disheartened, as you can imagine...so please send your prayers, good energy, and what-not to him for a quick dust-off and re-mount.

Thanks for sharing. Glad he's okay. Hope he can get back in the saddle again soon!
2/3 of the way to being fat, dumb, and happy.
sorry to hear about the get-off but am glad he is still with us!

glad he is ok, wish him the best and speedy recovery.
Glad he is Okay.... Yeah gear!
Good citizens know they're accountable for their actions (someone has said, "My right to swing my arm ends when my fist hits your nose").
"Words can hurt. Words can heal. Therefore it is of the utmost importance that we pay attention to our words."
On the Internet in some quarters, freedom is being abused and used irresponsibly as a smoke screen to communicate in a vulgar, profane, violent, and insulting manner.
"Freedom requires that at the end of the day, we accept the constraint that is required...."
Thanks for sharing. Glad Bubba's okay.

Glad he's okay! Wish Dot a quick rebuild.
Sorry to hear , Heal quick
I think that the only way we transcend the inevitability of being " Dust In The Wind " is the impact we leave on others after we are gone. To be Human is to recognize the necessity of interaction and the ability to affect one person's life with the smallest behavior . What we do echos throughout time, And while we may be forgotten, What is Today is only possible because of Yesterday !
Sorry to hear...get better soon.
Aint no fun when da rabbit's got da gun!!
I have e-mailed you, Scar. I went out today and did some upper speed runs to test tire heat. The tires really never got warm. I will go out tomorrow and take my IR scanner to actually measure the temps. The roads are cool and the tires are not heating up, not a good combo for making them stick.
I am glad to hear Bubba is ok. We were out riding Idyllwild and having a good time. We headed up towards SB mountains, he went up the CA-18 I went on to the CA-330. I am saddened to hear of his off. I am glad he is ok. Bubba is a super good person, you could not ask for a better person to be around or ride with! Positive energy sent for a speedy recovery.ATGATT!!!
Be good, be safe, and if you can't be good, don't get caught!!
Best wishes for a speedy recovery for both Bubba and "Dot".
Wow! Glad he is Ok!!! Prayers for a speedy recovery!
