Default Two things I can verify

1. Mud is very slippery

2. The Vision tip over protection works as advertised!

Yeah, I am fine. Pretty slow speed. I tucked in and stayed seated. Buddy I was riding with who was on a Harley was AMAZED there was zero damage. He was ahead of me and thought there would be a pretty good damage.

Two other things;

1) look where you want to go (I know this, but was looking at the muddy area instead...)

2) Turn the damned bike!


Guess who has spent the last three evenings in an empty parking lot working on slow speed handling... The shadow was only about 550 pounds. I could man handle it. The Vision is over 850.

Lesson learned.

Over 900 miles of gravel, 100+ miles of mud and where did I drop my bike?

In my garage as I was pushing it out to leave on the trip!
