I was turning left, 10 am sun in eyes, ended up too near right shoulder, and heading to a drop-off on the right. When I tried to turn left, the front end wiped out on pine needles. I stayed on the road; the bike slid off and down the embankment.
I have decided to spend the insurance settlement on a new car for Dianne rather than replace the written off bike.
In a few days, I will post some pics of the later days of the rally and the accident. Just wanted to let you all know of the situation.
