So i decided to ride to Home Depot in KOP today to pick up some christmas light hangers for my house being that it is freakin gorgeous outside. I picked up my stuff and headed down swedesford rd to 252 to swing through the park on the way home. Unfortunately as i entered into the park on 252 ( 90' left hand turn on loose gravel) i watched my shiny unblemished bike slide to the side of the road. No one nearby to bother me but now i have the signature tank ding on the left side of my gas tank on the D, one broken mirror, one broken rear turn signal and a scuffed bar end. no damage to me except for my pride. anyone have spare parts laying around they want to pawn? Otherwise its ebay for me.

Sorry to hear about the spill, but glad you're OK.

Which mirror do you need? I have a stock right hand mirror in the garage you're welcome to.

Its the left side mirror. i actually epoxied the turn signal back on as it was a clean break. it will do until i decide to do the tail chop.

was that right there at the covered bridge?
that's a bad spot all around. :-\

sorry to hear about the bike, but glad to hear you are ok.

also watch out if you are on whatever road connects 23 and outer line dr (i think that's the name, it's the one that goes by the lower lot at the welcome center) there is a lot of dirt/mud/rocks right there.

glad your okay, its never fun to slide
i was a half-second away from getting hit head on by what looked like a ford explorer yesterday.
i had to go off the road completely at 60mph as this woman on her cell phone drifted in my lane and almost clipped me. right as she got to me she saw me and slid the truck sideways. scared the hell out of me, but had to keep on riding and try to forget about it. can't say i'm not guilty of using the cell phone while driving so i cant really complain too much

the worse part of cars getting too close to motorcycles is that most of us are guilty of being on a cell phone, eating, steering with a knee, playing with the stereo, having sex, lighting a cigarette.......but anyway, we have all been behind the wheel and not been paying attention one time or another, so its hypocritical to call those people a-holes.
unless like me, you are fully aware of just how much of an a-hole you really are :)
