It happens... right?

I don't know what to say really. I'm kind of upset, so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Just so you all don't have to wonder too much, I hit a big puddle of oil in the parking lot at night braking (front brake only). Bike slid 5-10 yards, hit a median, flipped over that a couple times into another street, slid a couple more yards and then hit another curb. Here come the pictures.

Tail section. Notice I'm still repping CLSB, although I guess it might be a bad thing.

Sorry, I guess I forgot to mention this. I was wearing my helmet, JR Reactor jacket, JR Phoenix gloves, jeans, and Teknic Lightning boots. Guess what's hurt. My knees are scraped pretty badly--I actually took pictures of that too, but didn't wanna gross you guys out. I've also got a bit of a scrape on my ass, but it's not really that bad. My left palm has some scrapes on it where it wore through my gloves and above that at the end of my left thumb is a small scrape. Other than that, I'm okay. I'm upset though.

Shit.... OMG.... full moon, weird shit happens. I'm glad you are Ok, the bike is done... you need a new ride dude, they can't fix that.

I took a picture of my bruise too but I think it will look better tomorrow when it's all purple, green, blue and black.

I'm so glad I wore my leather pants today.

Bummer! Hope you're ok though. I know how upset you must be about this.

Wonder if Tony's got any stickers for that?

This kind of stuff is why I'm way slower at night. There's just too much you can't see! A puddle of oil????

HOLY COW MAX!!!!!

Damn, I am glad that you are OK!!!!!

Well, this is just the reason we cary insurance!! Did you have the cops come out? or did you get a picture of the stuff that made you go down? Looks pretty nasty, and I can understand how you'd be upset. Man I was livid when I dumpped mine, and I didn't have anywhere near that damage.

So, I am happy as hell you are ok! That explains why you'll be at lunch on Fri. in the cage. So what's the new bike going to be, and F4i?

Ciao,
Lupi
