You remember me or... not too bad for a low side?
Ok. First off, you guys are awsome for following my recent landlord/dealer/bike drama. Thanks for the support. Now....
300$ lighter and a fixed bike later. Damn it felt good. Riding home, shifts like a dream with the motul oil, breaks even pre-break-in feel really good. stopping power is awsome complaired to oem. Feels good to be in the saddle again. Here's the kick in the nuts. It starts lightly raining as I ride home. Not that bad, but just enough of a bummer that I can't take it out later tonight (I could but it would suck of course). Nothing heavy, just enough to damp my jacket and make me wish I had gotten to the shop 15 minutes earlier. Now, post-nut kick, this is where she cuts them off... Guess who's apartment complex has some standing water near the driveway. Guess who's neighbor's car had leaked a little oil into said standing water... and now guess who put his newly fixed 929 into a 2 wheel drift... F#ck me ya know.
Tossed me off. Went down pretty hard for 5-7mph on it's left side, frame slider lightly scuffed, clutch level lightly marked too. Oil f*cking everywhere from a cracked (stator?) engine cover. Rearset bent to all hell. And that wonderfull Motul oil all over the pavement. Tail must have touched down too because the passenger seat isn't coming down. looks bent.
Dont want any pitty in this post, just some good solid opinions.
I have to get a new engine cover.. So any recomendations? Something strong and hopefully not going to break the bank.
Also rearsets... I need a new one, not sure how much oem's cost but I'd be willing to buy something a little more expensive as long as it's worth the money. Just not that much more expensive ya know. After the 300 I dropped on an electrical problem, I just... well.. you get the idea.
Well, that's all folks. I think I'm going to go get drunk tonight and hope my boss isn't too pissed I have to call in on monday to take it to the shop.
I'm fine btw... small gash on my left fore arm near my wrist. No biggie just bummer.
