Ouch! WTF did you do?
I forgot to switch back to 'Yeehaa' mode from 'La-de-da' mode when I decided to enjoy a 10mph left hander at 20mph. Was in 4th and upright so when I rolled on the gas a little shortly after tipping in the front just let go and I got to hear that most horrible of sounds for the first time.

Denial ended just as I stopped sliding.
Anger ended about 15 seconds after that when I got her vertical.
Depression ended during my pre-shower smoke this morning as I was looking her over for the first time.
Bargaining didn't last but 5 seconds after that as I've been getting better at realizing I can't change the past.
Acceptance is here and over the next couple nights I'll decide what parts will be replaced and what will be repaired.

Such is life. Right?

Thanks guys. Yeah, I'm definitely happy with my new pants and not having to whip out the health insurance card. Almost wasn't gonna' say anything, but the right thread just happened to appear...


Could it have been tempting fate that, prior to Sunday, I had purchased 3 times more Red paint and 2 times more glass cloth, epoxy resin and coloring agent than I need for my airduct experiment???

EDIT: I am comfortable with having my bike look like poop, I ride with junk plastics on all the time now. If you can get a few new Honda stickers, you may be happy with it as is? I don't see any holes. Junk stuff
I'm actually considering that. Was nice having a gorgeous bike, but I kinda realized earlier today that I could care less if it's perfect and in fact would be even more pissed the first time the new pieces got damaged if I went the new and pretty route.

You know I gotta say it...... Frame sliders are a good thing. Ok, there, I got it out of my system.
Agreed.

The wish to have ordered them earlier in this past off season versus waiting until this month (they are/were in the 'to get' queue awaiting their turn) was the 5 seconds of bargaining this morning...
