This sucks, everytime someone else crashes they end up with like no damage.

When I crash I end up with a $600+ repair bill, assuming I fixed it properly, which I never do.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

I don't even know where to buy that hindle mid-pipe I had.

Was told it was for my bike, but the parts-unlimited book and other sources have no listing of a mid-pipe for my bike.

So I went to the next best option.

Yea, every time you crash, your bike comes back on the track with a little more character.

I'm expecting in a crash or two, you'll be rolling on a unicycle........
