    That probably hurt. Looks like he made it come to rest in between the trees.

              Iwing, we've ridden it 2 times and we took our time. We did it in the middle of the week.
              We had friends that rode it one time and were afraid of being run over. The couple each had their own wing. His wife was on her trike and lost it on a curve. Slide backwards in to the rocks and broke her back. Ended up staying in the hospital for 2 months and then flown back to Wisconsin where she stayed in a the hospital for another month.
              The Tree of Shame kind of tells it all.

                What I noticed is how a bike leaves very little evidence of running off the road. If we survive the crash, we could bleed to death or die from dehydration before anyone found us.

                  A very real concern! One of the reasons I always try to let someone know where I'm going and when I expect to be back whenever I ride alone. I also have an app that drops a "pin" every 10 minutes so my wife can not only see where I am, but what direction I'm traveling and when I was there. It's call PhoneTracker. Works pretty good even in limited cell coverage areas.

                  On my BMW GS Adventure MC there are reflective yellow striped tape on the bottom of the panniers to make the MC more visible in case its upside down off the side of the road...

                  What date did you pull this picture from??. I think we'd like to see the pictures leading up to this crash too.

                    I found this shot on their Facebook page from their weekly highlights for the week of October 9th. It was the last pic.

                  It may not have happened on a turn where he was set up to take pictures and he just went to the crash site and took them. But I too would like to see them if they're out there.

                    Hope everyone involved is ok. Wonder what caused it?

                      Ain't that the truth?If you missed a shift on some of those inside hairpins heading south on it you'd still be rolling and bouncing down the mountain a day later.They might never find you if you're running by yourself.
