I'm in Portland now, at Chris and Tami's place, and I'll be here for a couple of days while I figure out what to do next. This morning I checked the bike out, it's pretty messed up. The front plastics are destroyed. I slid into the tank so hard it tapped the frame of the bike. And the handlebars are bent and pushed all the way forward. That would explain why my midsection is so sore - I used to to bend metal. The forks are tweaked, or worse, and the front wheel is not quite true anymore. The rear subframe is bent up, from where it went down with the hard bags attached. I'm guessing this will not be cheap to fix. On the bright side, I got all my stuff off of the thing, and it did start right up when I tried it.
I'm not quite sure what the next step on this trip will be, a lot depends on how I feel over the next few days. I'll say this, the trip is on hold right now. Not completely canceled. When I decide what's going on, I'll be sure to post it.
Most bike shops are closed on Mondays, so it'll be Tuesday before I can make shipping arrangements for the busted KLR.
