Early morning spill

Was goin to my buddies house this morning and had my first low side spill. Luckily I was only going about 5 to 10 miles an hour so no real damage other than my pride. Insurance with fix everything else. LOL

It was a stupid mistake on my part. Luckily it wasn't on a busy street so i wasn't in danger of getting run over. Figured I'd let insurance handle it though. It's kinda what I pay them for. Bike ended up with a broken tail section, rearset and mirror stalk. Got rash on mid fairing, frame sliders and swingarm slider snapped off and scuffed up the stator cover screws and clutch linkage cover got chewed up. It was a combo of new/cold tired and cold asphalt and too much throttle. Lesson learned.

Helmet wasn't touched, my alpinestars jacket took the brunt of the landing but looks no worse for wear. Looks like I just dropped in on the ground. Same for my gloves. Sidi boots got scuffed pretty good but it's mostly cosmetic. I can gladly say that they were well worth every cent I paid for them.
