Default My riding season is over.

After taking vacation this week to do nothing but ride witch I did for 3 outta the 4 days off i had.1st ride was 225 mi to the quabbin resevoir in mass. very nice ride. ride num 2 was a great 303.5 mi day on the mohawk trail also in mass.will not look at that state the same again. the western part of that state is beautifull with many more roads to explore.my 3rd ride was to new hampshire kangamangus highway. awesome! from there a bud and i headed n conway for a road he heard about from a friend of his called hurricane mountain rd.what a crazy road that is..but that is where it ended.to my dissmay i totaled my bike 2 mins from the end of this road and was about to head home for the day.i made it out with some pretty good bruising pretty sore all over but i had my tour master jacket,helmet and jeans on thankfully and the hand of god guiding me between 2 trees about 8 ft apart.wide right or left i probably wouldnt be typing this.not sure whats going to happen with the bike. if its fixable be riding next season if not ins will pay it off and i will have to wait till i can get yet another bike.i will probably be in and out of the site but probably not have too much to say.i want to thank everyone for the advice i did get on the post i put up.this site is very informative and full of nice fellow riders.ride safe people.oh yeah although beat up really good she still starts and is not leakin any fluids.. gotta love victory.

Sorry! am happy you didn't hurt the three trees. Just kidding.
Let the insurance company total it. You'll be way happier and you can find another one.

Whatever you do, do not buy a '12! The '04 was lost in a flood, the '08 was lost between trees, a '12 could be strike three. Get a lucky '13!
