Take a Stand

Made it all the way home just to realize I forgot my wallet at work.  No way to buy longer bolts for the engine stand meant cutting.  Oh well, it’s done.

Recap and Crash

So, crashing sucks. I’m sitting in my office thinking about the tasks ahead and how to proceed.

I really was hoping to get a bunch more events in before this happened but I knew it would. Part of all the experiments I’ve been doing involve having low amounts of front grip. Why, I’m not really sure. I feel like I’ve been able to manage low power and low grip very well but it got me into a bunch of trouble this time.

With the lack of power I wasn’t able to keep up with my friends I was tandeming with. An unexpected spin meant that I was just far enough behind that they had just enough time to come to a complete stop as I was initiating into the turn. Add in that low front grip I was talking about and you have a nasty lock up into t-bone with frame rail 50/50 smash.

Anyway, it happens. At least I got a few good pics from friends before it happened and I finally took video. Youtube is free so that’s where the video is haha!

Of course after the crash my water heater at the shop would decide to spring a leak while I’m at work.

And the last few pics of her ever looking like this again. Photo credits go to Beau Bridges for Minus Darkslide and Jeffrey Buchanan at Golden Automotive Photography both of whom are on FaceBook!
