I'm in the jura alps near Switzerland at the moment. Nice to have a big winding road to yourself and get a lick on. That's my slumit cub tent on the back, it's bulky rather than heavy, easy to erect but won't go back in the bag without a fight. Got some radweld today and some vented gloves. It's very difficult to pick clothing, i was sweating in the hot sun at dinner today then drenched in a thunderstorm this evening

Unlucky getting knocked off. Can you still ride it or is it being recovered?
It's been recovered, I'm in an ibis hotel, Saturday evening now so it's a wait till Monday to see what insurance says, i know they're going to write it off, if i had it at home i could fix it but then again how can I be sure the chassis or forks aren't bent. No it's not rideable, all the controls are mangled

They will probably write it off. Have a close look at any recovery cover you have as it doesn’t always cover ferry charges for the recovery vehicle which can be quite steep.
