Mid-day digger 2.0

This time it IS me. I'm posting pics and you can ask for the story if you want. We will all see that it ended badly. I'm fine with a miraculous come out. Scrapes and maybe some soreness tomorrow. My baby is left for dead in a parking lot until I get new parts. Stator/alternator case at the very least until she can even start. Donations graciously accepted!

Merging from one hwy to the next after a morning rain... Right turning on ramp was wet and went a little too outside so I up-righted to slow down but the momentum on top of being a little outside carried me into the wall (yeah I kinda lost focus instead of keeping my wits and ACTUALLY slowing down correctly). I slid along the top of the barricade wall looking down on an EASY 50' drop but pulled myself back on to the ramp and slid/tumbled some 20-50'. Stood up and watched my bike ride the wall til the wall stopped and she fell sideways. All started at about 65 mph. I'm way lucky to have not gone over the edge of that wall. Yeah I count my blessings but I'm still gonna have bike payments on a bike I can't ride.

WOAH, wild ride, man. SO glad you didn't decorate my favorite state with your body parts. Heal up, repair the metal, and get back out there...

Yeah it'll be a close one on whether to pay the $1000 deductible to get everything fixed or do it myself. Tank will decide that.

Way over 1k in damage. Wouldn't be surprised if they total it.

Glad to hear you're ok! 50' drop would've been bad news bears. And yes, you're in luck, someone on E-bay is parting out. Would also be worth dropping them a line for parts they don't have listed (yet).

Man, that is CRAZY! I watched my friend hit black ice in his car, skid sideways, and end up riding sideways on one of those bridge ledges until he flipped upside down on the bank of the river on the other side. Scary!

Glad you are ok!

I would say replace only the parts you need to get her road worthy. Get the rest later as it comes around for a cheap price.

Thanks a bunch for all the well wishes guys! I'm pretty well up to speed on getting the scarlet beauty back on the road. I still need a speedo/tach! Any insight?

Besides getting a Koso! @g00gl3it (although since I'm getting a good tax return... it's tempting)

Those scapes on your legs suggests you weren't wearing riding pants; am I wrong?

Jeans... Helmet and my now thrashed Scorpion Hat Trick jacket saved the rest of me.

Glad you're ok. All things considered you came out smelling like a rose... Add ya a good set of frame sliders during your rebuild, they proly woulda saved the tank at least.
