Well my 3 month old R1 now sits at the dealer slightly crinkled after a wheelie gone bad. The city apparently decided to pave my street while I was gone last friday, and even better they left aabout a 2 inch deep pile of loose gravel at the very end of the street. Well to make a long story short I was riding a wheelie down the street and hit the newly paved area and when I hit all that gravel, goodbye. Next thing I know i am in the gutter looking up at my friends, laughing their asses off. I had all my gear on so I am ok, and suprisingly the bike slid most of the way on the left side on the frame sliders and the handlebar, so it really isn't hurt to bad. But hey, when i got home the city was nice enought to have left a note on my door that they paved the street lol. Anyway, anyone that has the left mirror, left clipon, or a red tail they wanna part with let me know. I don't claim my stupidity on my insurance, so maybe I can save some money getting parts from someone else. Thanks.
