    Default MAM-I'm still not going miss it

    Had a little mishap Wednesday nite after leaving bike night in Indy-1st I wanna say that I'm totally ok didn't fall or drop bike but what happen was getting on expressway that was in construction zone while entering expressway was down to 3 lanes-far left lane cars were flowing - barrels were leading to shoulder and middle lanes-but shoulder had notches in ground which is normal to let you know you drifting onto shoulder also shoulder had lot of debris on them so when I saw that on shoulder I wasn't going ride that way so I assumed I was suppose to go the the left to get in far left lane-now the barrels were spread far enough apart that a car could go thru them and as i went in between the barrel a patch of the road had been removed about 6inches deep and probably 4 feet long- I go in it straight-and come out straight but after I come out I pull over after 50 yards away to check out bike lucky the crew behind me stopped traffic until I could pull over safely they say my back wheel came off ground about 2feet- luckily I was only about mile away from brother house -get there and check out bike - 1-front rim bent-2-dent in tank about size of quarter I'm assuming that came from my knee when I clinched tank with them 3-little damage on front fender -4-rear cowl broke clamps to mounting bracket either from when rear wheel landed or I landed on rear of seat and pushed back on the cowl after bike landed few other minor things but all those were fixed before I left brothers house - don't see any other damage as of yet - so sad to say I won't be bringing my bike but I'll be on another 9 see y'all Tuesday

    Ah, man, that sucks!!! But, hey, it could have been so much worse - so I guess you should count your Blessings! Glad you're still coming to the MAM - way to find the silver lining.

    I'm glad to hear you're okay Bro. The bike can be repaired, and certain items replaced.

    I'm glad you are ok and still able to make it to MAM. Sounds like it could have been a lot worse. That must have been one ruff ride to do that much damage, but at least you didn't go down! Where did the other 9 you are bringing come from?

    Damn bro sorry to hear this, you can fix that rim with a 2 x 4 and a sledge hammer and wont even notice it. I've done it before. Put a rear seat on and you can still go.

    You came out smelling like a rose! Next time you ride on the street, get some off road tires!

    Glad you are okay, enjoy MAM, wish I could be there! A lot of great people I want to meet, and a couple I have had the opportunity to meet already!

    Make sure you take a really good look at your rear wheel, good chance that is also bent but not as noticeable due to how wide it is.

    Appreciate that bro- maybe I'll bring rim with me and let you work your magic in it -yeah I could put rear seat on but I hate that look :) I'm not going say who suggested to me to ask you if you had a stock front rim for me to use - I was like I'm not riding with mix match rims we got some die hard riders in this site :)

    I have a set of stock wheels (gray) with 160/260 Metz on them I can bring for you if you want. The rear will need the Cush drive swapped over tho. I'll have my bike jack and tools with me as well. We can definitely get your 9 on the road if you want.

    Its great that your cousin is loaning you his 9!
