Heavy Dee, now you can make jokes about me crashing again!
Man, my luck this year on the bike has been shitty! Glad the year is almost over. Let's just say, cold tires + cold road + light covering of dirt on the roadway, from construction = Lowside!
The 954 went down on the right side, but amazingly enough the can didn't get hurt at all. Now the right rearset if messed up beyond repair, but saved the can, right frame slider is toast, right turn signal is gone, right lower fairing is fubar and my new double bubble is cracked.
Basically, I was taking a right hand turn. I saw the dirt on the roadway, so I was going pretty slow 15 mph or so. I was half way into the turn, when I felt the rear tire slide out. There was no warning at all, one minute grip, next no grip.
I've already ordered all the replacement parts. Man this spill is going to cost me like $850!
Gotta love sportsbikes
I guess I'll just wallow in self-pity and get my bank card out.
