Hey Tom, don't feel too bad. I'm here at Ironhorse campgrounds, went to explore what was at the top of the hill in the back of the campgrounds and tipped it over twice in ten minutes. Once on each side, the second one me and the bike slid about 15 feet down a concrete incline. Needed help getting it up both times. Banged right elbow and hip on second one as well, but the biggest injury was to my pride.
But now I know what's at the top of that hill NOTHING BUT TROUBLE.

Rode the Dragon today with no problems, fall down at campgrounds

I offered to take Ed's camera and snap a second photo with him in this group photo. Well............ Jinx seems to be conspicuously left out of a photo op. An accident or a calculated coincidence ? Hmmmmmmm....................
