So how do we add pics now post Photobucket?
As for needs, a chrome brake lever and a set of stock length braided throttle cables. Not sure if they are stock levers or not on it but I have a pic lol

I moved over to Flickr because of Photobucket's stupid adds and rules. Works great!

Sorry to hear this but thankful it wasn't worse. Yes, I would consider this a "no shame" incident. So glad you were geared up!

As uncomfortable as it may be, it's always better (imo) to sweat than bleed!!

Glad it all worked out OK
(for the most part, there were a lot worse options we could be reading about right now..)

I never wore helmets, then started trying to get in the habit. Tried some of our modular snowmobile helmets.

Just got a good deal on an Aria open face and started wearing it. I figured I would be more apt to use it since I can still get the wind and the sun on my face.

But I'm the one that is always posting how stupid an open face helmet is, with the chin having the highest percentage of impact in crashes.

That little voice is saying I should listen to my own advice.



I ride with a 3/4 helmet and always have. Bought a full face and hated it...a lot. Just didnt seem like motorcycling. So I'll accept the risk to my lower face and protect the rest of my melon.

That the main reason I spent the money on a Shark EVOline. 3/4 for most riding flip it to full face for highway or high speed.

Damn Pat, sorry to hear this! Glad you are okay, and it sounds like the bike is still rideable? You want to put in on the list for Phil to work on at Eureka Springs?

Glad you are OK and not much worse for the wear. Seems we all have to learn some simple things the hard way some times. Me Included!

Dude, glad to hear your pretty much ok, could have been worse.

I don't think you can post from Photofucket anymore without buying that $40/month plan.
You can still post you pics on there, open your pic, copy the address in the search bar, then past it in you thread using the URL tab. basicly just posting a link to photfucket.
You can also post pics to facebook (if you use it) and then post from there site. Some others have also used other hosting sites, but i'm not very up to speed on what they are using.
