A week ago Sunday on a beautiful afternoon, a root bump in the road took its toll on cycle and rider. Troop's baby suffered moderate damage, and his body is intact. Left side pipe, handlebars, and clutch lever destroyed. Motor mount plates are bent. Troop escaped after a high side dismount with a sprained ankle.
Some minor repairs are in order, and are underway. That old helmet did its job, thanks to Billy and Rachel at Hellmutts in Tacoma.
Keep the faith!
