Looks good!

The boot shot brings back images of late '60s rock album covers - or sumthin' like that.

Good thing the AT napped in some, hay?
Yes they are slightly odd picture angles as they are still grabs from my 360 camera!

But you are right it does look a bit modern arty!

My bike took a nap today for the 4th or 5th time. Pretty level dirt road, wet leaves over slick muddy base. The rear end just came around on me at low speed. Tweaked my calf muscle a bit when I tried to throw a leg down to stop the fall. while I was walking it off/waiting to build some strength to pick it up I took a few pics. I usually have the thing back up quick and never get the picture. This time the ole AT slammed me down pretty hard. I was thinking how glad to have a good helmet as the back of my head was thrown into the ground. The engine cover got muddy while spinning it around on its side to get the tires downhill. Barkbusters, SW Motech and the footpegs all did their job to protect the bodywork.

I have a couple that I love. Neither are of my AT. I hope that does not disqualify me. The first is on my F800GS, bought before the AT was even a thing. My chain carrier bearing died. It took the dealer two weeks just to get the part. Planes, trains and an F150 got me home. This was in an area with no cell service in BC. Took hours for the flat-deck to find me. AT bought shortly thereafter.

What's the first thing you do when your buddy drops the bike? Grab a camera! Glad he did.
This one is riding a hill that is steeper than it looks (Aren't they all??) with lots of loose rocks. Again, not my AT but I think it is a stunning shot.

This was taken at a Horizons Unlimited Event in South Eastern BC. We did not even come close to winning and we had a blast!

Ol' Red napping on the initial climb to Ophir Pass during our recent COBDR. This was a low-energy event so she suffered just a few small scratches on the SW Motech bars and Barkbuster as permanent reminders. She also bent her shift lever but I was able to straighten that with a MotionPro tire tool. This was all my own doing...a small moment of overconfidence and disdain for the terrain. She had done everything she was supposed to...me, not so much.

This was at the start of what was to become a pretty miserable morning climbing Ophir Pass for our threesome. Fortunately, I started holding up my side of the bargain and had no further cause to cuss her, or myself.

We did make the pass after a tough ride on some pretty nasty loose shale. Check that crap out...two feet forward, one foot back. Drop bike every 300 ft or so. Fortunately I was able to get to the top without any added misfortune. Ol' Red was feeling the altitude too. Her 2nd gear pull was like 3rd gear performance at sea level. The air is only 2/3 as dense up here. We saw a commensurate drop in available torque.

Oh my! That stuff is slick as snot. I do not enjoy riding 2 wheels anywhere near wet leaves on soft soil. It's not a question of if...just when.

It's hard to get springs for a rider of that weight. Yes, he crawled away and rode many other days : )
That chain looks a little off-kilter as well. What were the dynamics of your off? Fast or slow?
