Dammit!

Well, took the bike to EFR after Strats for some work on the fuel injectors. The driveway is on a hill and I forgot to put the bike in gear. Yep, rolled backwards and fell over! The damage is pretty minor, but I'm pissed off!!!

I'm actually lucky as hell! A small scrape in the side panel, a small scape on the pipe (coated pipe, don't know what it will take to fix that, minor bend in the exhaust bracket, minor damage to the rubber gasket on the can, and a scrape on the right bar end. Amazingly there no other damage.

This sucks! I hateit when I do stupid shit like this! I got off lucky but it still sucks!

Dave

welcome to the crash club.


So who's got cool stickers that Dave and I can use to cover our minor scuffs from recent mishaps?

It could be worse Dave. I'm glad the bike isn't too messed up.

I was darn near a psychotic maniac myself after this stupid incident. Man, I was lucky though! It could have rolled a little further and smashed into the side of his van.

I don't think there was any damage to the turbo or header so it's pretty minimal. I'm not sure how to repair the scrape on the ceramic-coated pipe. It could have been WAY worse! No insurance claim on this one.

Does it count for the crash club if you were nowhere near your bike when it crashed?

Well, it's looking like around $300 depening on how anal I get about replacing everything. I'm guessing roughly $200 for touch up painting and $100 to redo the ceramic coating on the pipe. All this while my back was turned!

I should be getting it back tomorrow with new fuel injectors and new fuel maps.

Replacing the side panel instead of touch-up would be over $500! Think maybe it's time to get in the plastics business?

Maybe I need stickers for my shit!

I've got a little scrape on the bar end too.

Being stupid can get really expensive!
