I was cruising through my neighborhood on the way home from work and I took my eyes off the road to look at this house for sale. When out of the corner of my eye I catch some movement, it was an elderly person backing down a driveway. I was going to slow in to high a gear so when I tried an evasive maneuver I turned the wheel to sharp and got caught up in some debris that had collected near the curb. It was like slow motion as I went down on my left side. I turned the bars to try to protect the tank and and let it down easy. Man I couldn't save it. It went past that point of no return. Luckily I had left the rear pegs down which saved the back of the bike. I immediately hit the kill button. Only thing that was damaged was the left mirror and my pride. To top it all off this cager never realized what they had caused.
