Recently retired and living in Colombia. Got a 2020 1250gs to explore the country side which I am loving. Quick crash story, decided to head down to Meta to see the river of seven colors, everyone from Colombia said don’t ride but fly bc it’s too dangerous. Still road my bike with my girl. it was raining and the roads had that red mud clay. I had confidence in my new Anakee tires so didn’t give much thought. Went down, my right boot was caught under the bike, my various pannier broke, and my ego got hurt. Anyways, got it up and road the next 6 hours not realizing the crash bent my rear brake to stay engaged. Rear brakes got heated, brake fluid leaked out, and rear brake system was ruined. What an experience to ride back on that same road and trip with no rear brakes.

A stroke of bad luck comes to all of us at some point. Unavoidable at times. Keep up a chin up on this, glad you weren't seriously hurt, get the repairs completed and head out on adventure riding again! Nice bike!!!
