WTF It happened that quick ! !
Well, good news, I came away with a sore foot. Yesterday leaving the office for the ride home, me and ARSEY went down. A minor get off, but none the less, went down. As I'm, approaching the intersection to turn left, slowing down and about to put my foot down, but before I come to a complete stop, front wheel washes out and bike falls on its right side catching my right foot underneath. It happened so quick, that I'm still trying to figure out what and how. I did notice a little sand or loose gravel, but nothing I haven't ridden over before. I take this same route daily. Anyway, came out with sore foot and going to doctor this morning for x-ray. ARSEY came away with broken right foot peg, bent rear brake lever,broken right mirror which I just replaced a week ago, paint is scraped on right edge of top cowl below right mirror mount, mid pipe has some rash and right exhaust can is bent in closer to fender. Right canister has some slight rash. Thank god for frame savers, my right fram saver did what it was supposed to and kept the fairing from touching the asphalt ! ! ! I was able to ride ARSEY home, bracing my right foot on the nub of the foot peg bracket, and realized how much I miss not having a right mirror. So ARSEY is no longer a virgin in relation to hitting the asphalt, almost made it 13 years. Again, this happened so quick, so be careful out there.
