I WENT DOWN THIS MORNING

;D what a great way to start my thanksgiving.

obviously i am fine. just a few srapes and a bruised leg. thanks to all my gear.

i took an early early ride up this morning to the tortilla flats. i was coming roun a turn that i misjudged and target fixated on the gravel. needless to say i went into the gravel at about 5mph and layed her down.

i am definately thankful for how lucky i was this morning.

bent bars
destroyed right hand controls
both mirrors gone
bent brake pedal
scratched engine case
scratched tank
scratched rear cowl
scratched front fender. (LANDSHARK... WE NEED TO TALK)
messed up gauges
messed up brake cylinder and lever
damage limited to the right side of the bike

now i have to come up with a new paint scheme!!


mostly all parts and paint so it should be too bad.

happy thanksgiving all!!

Good to hear you are ok. I had not seen you on here in a while or on any rides (Scottsdale Demo day last weekend did not care about age).

Keep your chin up man. The bike will get fixed and you'll be back on it in no time. In the meanwhile, rest up and feel better. I've got some stock mirrors and a front fender (yellow) laying around. Lot's of stock nuts and bolts too. One thing I can say about AZDRA, is there's a lot of solidarity around here. I'm sure we can scrounge up most of what's on your broken list and keep your pocket from feeling the brunt so close to the holidays.

Do I hear a "Fix-n-tune Nosolace's bike party" coming up in the near future?

Re: I WENT DOWN THIS MORNING

Thanks Guys!! i hope you all had a great thanksgiving! that sounds good to me! well all have to hang out and come up with a new paint scheme as well! I really like the color white. pearl white too. i was thinking something unique. my idea so far... black tank with a white stripe and then getting the frame powder coated white so it will stand out (i love the 695's red frame) another idea is not a white stripe, but the lower rear contour painted white (it would look nice, and not show the scrathes that occur there.




rule, those mirrors sound good! the ground took my right one off and i went right through my left one (bruise on arm) [laugh] i think my fender is fine. just scraped up. i dont know if the scrapes are just the paint or deeper yet. well see.

i guess this is just Gods way of making me mod my bike sooner and for more money than i intended!! YAY!!

(and to appreciate how lucky i am haha)

Ooo, a white frame with black tank and the leg contours painted white with a small pin stripe on tht outside of the white part. Man that would be freakin awesome. Although better with white wheels also.
