Totaled & Towed

August 21, 2013
Insurance calculates that repairs surpass the value. Auction group in Sacramento came down to take away the VFR. 

My helmet is covered in the accessories insurance. That is something. 

Now onto PT to build up muscle and tissue in the left shoulder. Then decide if surgery is needed.

Is this the end of the road?

Third of August two thousand and thirteen year of our Lord. 

Met Chuck for breakfast at Alice's and then rode east to Livermore to ride up Mines Road. 

Nice day to ride, clear 70s. Mines had just been resurfaced and loose gravel was everywhere. Had a bad feeling. Then one turn about 10 miles out ran off to the soft shoulder and landed on my left shoulder. The rear of the VFR pinned my left leg. Chuck got to me and lifted the bike off.

New front tire July 2013

Before the Hollister Rally I got the new Pirelli Angel GT. Gone is the winged angel pattern that wears off after 600 miles to expose a demon face on the ST. It's all business for this sport touring tire. Extra thicker tread and modified channel for the wet. Suppose to be longer lasting compound - we'll see. So now I have the ST on the rear and GT up front. 


Took it slow and easy down to Hollister to add scrub in miles to the first 100. It was good to be out in the 75 breezy conditions smelling the strawberries growing by the highway. Very crowded people wise in town but, traffic moved well. Need to change my oil and filter before Laguna MotoGP. 

Remember when Harley made 90cc of bad ass?
