Unhappy my wife went down on her bike!!!!

well, i will be posting pictures tomorrow... so my wife and i went for a friend in my parents plan... she improved 150% so we moved on from the target parking lot... well, i taught her the basics of what to do and what not to do.. well there was this other biker coming towards us as we were going around a bend around 15mph and she freaked out because she thought he was going to hit her.. so she grabbed the hell out of the front brake and down she went on the left side!! so the left footpeg and shifter, gone.... the turn signal gone... left side faring damage...left sideview mirror cracked.... clutch lever and bar end weight scratched... pictures tomorrow

my wife is ok... im just glad she had her riding boots on... the rear foot peg landed right on her ankle!!!.. she some road rash... and of course she feels down and out!!!

her first road rash(just to her left arm):

Glad to hear she is ok. Well good news is she got her first one out of the way right? She should go through a MSF Basic Riders course if she hasn't already. Then again some people are just made to sit on the back.

Glad to hear she's (more or less) OK......I learned the same lesson last summer....
It's never too hot for a jacket!! Got the scars to prove it....
Get her a nice armored textile.... And major props to her for gettin' out there!!

'06, Smoked windscreen, Galfer S/S brake lines, GiPro TRE, Speedohealer, Custom lighted fender eliminater, A&R Baffles, "Real" Ohlins Damper, added a seat cowl, so now I'm a true 'poser'..... Power mods - Why? Too much for me already!
