Angry layed it down yesterday. :-(

Layed my bike down goin about 5mph around the first corner of the day yesterday, guess the wet and cold tires didn't work in my favor, the frame sliders did there job so it didn't mess too much up, small scuff on lower right fairing, tail fairing scraped up, no cracks in the fairings so that's good, and my rear brake lever broke... All in all it could have been worse so I'm thankful for that, if anyone knows a good cheap paint guy, I'll b looking to give him some business. Lol


Be safe in the wet, cold weather guys and girls.

I would post pics but it won't let me from my phone

man that sucks! Good thing is that your ok, alive, and posting with us today.

What kind of gear were you wearing when you went down? The wet roads are no joke bro, try to stay off of them and avoid all if possible.

Ouch. That never feels good. I'm sorry the brake lever broke, or you'd still be able to ride, but who needs the rear brake, anyway? JK!

Glad everything is relatively okay. happens, it'll buff right out.

While bluewave is kinda blunt, I'd prob have to agree. If it happened that fast, it'll prob happen again unfortunately.

Sad to hear this happen. Similar happened to me, I left the minor scuffs for character and a reminder.

Just means its time for asv's! Lol

And good and cheap don't go together with a paint guy! Spend that extra dollar or two to get it done correctly when your ready for paint.
