Unhappy BAD FRIDAY

Decided to ride the R1 in to work today. My boss is kind enough to let me put it in the secured garage so no one steals it(I work in GREENSPOINT area). well apparently I parked about an inch to close to the gate. someone left the garage and it caught on the exhaust and pulled the bike forward while knocking it over and then dragging it on the concrete. not too bad. thank for frame sliders. only thing that broke was the windshield. she's up for sale if anyone is interested. won't take much to fix her. she just hit 4300 miles and has brand new dunlop Q2's with 100 miles on them.

Sounds like it could have been worse than it was. Is this one incident causing you to sell it? or was it for sale before the incident?

right, i've got 2 kids and a full time job too (workin OT today, my "day off"), 6k in 7 mos, riding the wife's bike today.

keep the current bike and knock off the dust from time to time. you're going to get hosed on selling on a toy rarely use.

Haha whats the deal my man. I never knew you had a bike, then managed to tear it up. LMAO! sucks to hear though. Do you still have that Tundra? Ive been converting my family over to Toyotas the last year or so. We got my sister into a new 4x4 a couple of weeks ago. I picked up a new 4runner trail edition and sold that big breakdown queen dodge I had.

I would be very interested in your bike, if the price is right. How much were you thinking you want.
