Dern, Mike! Glad you had the presence of mind to slow down and minimize the damage. Looks mostly cosmetic BTW so you'll be back to shiny in no time.

wow! no flames yet. I'm stunned hahaha. Thanks guys. Oh I definitely panicked! Once I was down in the ditch blazing my own path I basically froze. I should have used some rear brake and tried to soak up the bumps with my arms.

Only broke the front fairing. Mostly mud and scratches. As for the 20mph crash speed, it's just a guess. Funny thing is once we stopped at the next gas station there was a guy on a HD that was having tranny problems and wasn't rideable while my bike went down and is still going like the energizer bunny!

Yes I have taken MSF. Yes I have a M endorsement. Yes I attend trackdays.


Well let me be the first to tell you that getting on the gas will make the bike want to run wide. If you want to turn more then let off the gas, NOT get on the gas like you said.
