Danget! Binned it again!

So this is the 2nd time I ate chit this summer. Another rookie lesson learned (cold tires). Last wed I was feeling a little frisky on my way into the office. I decided to lean into the first turn of the day a little too hard. I kinda knew I was pushing it but I've been trying to trust my tires a little more lately and working on my low speed turning ability. Big mistake! I kinda knew I should've waited for the tires to warm up but I under estimated how cold it was outside. Looking back it was 50 deg outside and I was only 3 blocks from my house. The pavement went from asphalt to smooth concrete in the middle of the turn. As soon as the surface changed I lost the rear at around 25mph ish and she slid into the curb. I had on all my gear so I hopped right up without injury but the bike was ugly all down the right side and I broke off a rearset. I pulled out my tools zip tied the plastics up and put a bolt through the rearset and kept going. My bike is a complete disaster right now looks wise.

Im going to replace everything mechanical thats broke but I plan to leave the ugly plastics for a few more months incase I bite it again. I need to invest in sliders bad!

Honestly the concrete is a more likely culprit than your tires being cold. Although if your tires were warmed up it probably wouldn't have happened. But concrete gets real slick in conditions that asphalt normally doesnt. i.e. morning time with some frost still out.

Sorry to hear DW. Glad you weren't hurt, and you should definitely invest in sliders

You must love your gear!

Show us how bad it looks, somehow I always think, bikes that look rough just adds character and gives you street cred :P

I spaced on this thread. sorry guys it's been a wild year for me and I got busy.

here is an update sorry for the crappy photos my iphone4 camera sucks.


How I bought it 3 years ago


2000$ in parts later


These are from the first wreck I had last year where some lady cut me off and I rookie braked and lost it.











This saved my leg







This is after I put on on crap fairings and got it running good enough for me to get around town and look for a job while my srt4 was down.



Got a new DD car (2013 wrx) and let the bike sit till now.



Almost a year later I finally got some money aside and I am putting it back together again.

Still needs alot of work and time but this is where Im at so far.
