Crash!!!

Just crashed the 9er last Saturday. Blind curve, unfamiliar road, and gravel are not a good combination. Really wasn't going very fast but speed isn't always the issue. Helmet, jacket and gloves saved me from some serious rash. A busted lip and a few bruises.

amazing all the little things that get broken:
windscreen, levers, throttle cables, footpeg, clutch cover, master cyclinder cover, rear brake pedal, guage cover. Not to mention the tank, tail, and fender.

And when you have a one off color there is no matching the paint.

What's really bad is the good weather just started and I'm out of commission until the repairs are done. I just finished my 954 streetfighter but haven't got it titled yet.

Sorry about the crash S10. Is the bike fixable ? That 954 is badass.

Bike is abolutely fixable. I've already started pricing the parts. Thinking about buying a new tank, tail, and fender. I get a really good discount at a local bike shop.

The 954 is almost too badass for my old self. It is impossible to go slow on that thing. It has a two brother full system on it. I'm not a big fan of two brother but since I cut the can in half it sounds killer. I am most likely going to sell it once I have a title. I have an old sohc cb750 that I want to cafe and selling the 954 will provide the funds.

Sorry to hear about your crash as well. Please let me know when you are ready to sell that 954. I just might be interested.
