Well after a couple of years of not posting I am back. For the last couple of years I have been spending most of my time on my motorcycles and not in the celica. Since I bought my F650 GS I have put 34,000 miles on it and only about 5k on the celica.

Five months ago on Memoral day weekend I had a crash on my KLX250S that sent me to the hospital via helicopter. I was back riding motorcycles 2 1/2 weeks later. Then on October 13 on my way back from St. Louis I hit a bear on the BMW but did not crash.

Well there is the brief update on what has been going on recently.

The bear knew that it got hit, and there was no damage to the bike after the inpact.

My KLX on the other hand took quite a beating in its crash.
