A little wiser and a few new scars

Last year in late August I was riding on I-90 in the AM going to work in AWH. I was in the far left lane going over Sprage when I momentarily looked over my right shoulder for merging traffic. I looked forward to see the SUV I was following had collided with the car in front of him and I had nowhere to go. I pulled a stoppie at 60mph and shot off the bike like superman into the tailgate of the SUV.

If it wasnt for my Icon riding gear and LIFE SAVING Shoei helment, it would have been much worse. Two broken wrists and jaw. The 954 took it like a champ. Crunched tank, smashed windscreen, clipped front fairing and a crunched Scott stabilizer. I'll take that for the circumstances given.

It's all back together now and just fired it up yesterday, runs like a champ. Now both my Blade and are both -titanium- by nature
