Well, I did it again!

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.

Rick (I wish I could keep my bike on two wheels) Melrose

Re: Well, I did it again!

Rick,
Don't mean to thread jack but THANK YOU for the rear sets man. Got my baby back on the road Friday afternoon. Dave at Fast Track is awesome and did a fantastic job on my wheel. Aside from my battle scared plastics and the small section of my radiator that got a little goofed, my bike is back to normal. We gotta hook up sometime and ride, not only that but at least owe you lunch or something. Glad you're ok, get back on the road soon.
