Dang! That was a serious nose dive. "Oh F**k!".......exactly. All captured in beautiful high definition. I'm not cracking...I respect the effort and the commitment to try such intense terrain.

Yep he was real lucky. Below is what he had posted with the video.

Published on Mar 3, 2013
My 2012 dual sport motorcycle ride on the Western portion of the Trans America Trail ended abruptly in a crash as I rode my DR650 out of Eagle Canyon in central Utah, in Sept 2012. We were in the middle of a 32 day, 4000 mile ride where 2400 miles were in the dirt.

If you want to skip ahead, the crash occurs at around the 5:00 mark.

Here is the short version of the post crash events:

My buddy didn't see me and passed by while I was down. He returned 10 minutes later to find me sitting on the road. We pressed 911 on my SPOT device, help came and I was taken to the hospital. Partially collapsed lung and bruised ribs was all they found. I am now fully healed. Amazingly, the bike was rolled along the lower ledge back to where it met the road. They got it started, rode it up the remaining trail and an additional 30 miles of highway to where it was stored. I tried to continue the ride 2 days later, but the bike had problems and I had to rent a truck to get me and my bike home to California. My buddy completed the rest fo the trip solo.

If you would like to read a more detailed account, I have posted it on an adventure riding motorcycle forum. Here is the link to the thread there: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showth...
