Threw it down the road today

Went down today. I guess at about 30mph. It had just rained lightly and I was about 500 feet from home. Was going around this slightly off camber left and the back end went by by. Tried to correct but it was to late. The whole thing was witnessed by some chick who was just learning to ride one her 250 Rebel.lol
She said "are you ok" I stood up and said yeah, I'm like "[email protected]#K!" in my head. She asks me again I say "yeah i'm ok", she tells me she's just learning how to ride. I'm thinking "in the rain", I tell her to be careful.
I pick up the bike, fire her up and ride the additional 450 feet to my apartment.
Rashed the left middle fairing cracked the lower on both sides, broke the shift lever light rash on the upper fairing, tail and exhaust shield. I'm happy I pay for Full coverage.
I checked Bikebandit just to see and the shift lever was a nice $85.:headshake I'll let the shop take care of it.
Got a little rash on the back. That's about all. Lucky.

sorry to hear but a little rode rash is not as bad as a totaled bike and a compound fracture. glad to hear you are ok.

Last time I was down was on my ol 87 CBR600R Hurricane back in the early 90's. Same deal bro, just rained for the 1st time in about a month in the summer. A stupid Metro bus slammed his brakes on in front of me to pick somebody up off the sidewalk, no bus stop. I just about cleared the rear, left end of the bus but caught the corner. Fractured my right leg. Had lawyers working on the case but anytime you rear end somebody it's almost impossible to recover damages.

Glad to hear you're ok. Your health is way more important than the bike. You have full coverage so you are good to go. Consider that lucky and get back up on the horse. Have fun.

Sorry to hear about your accident, did you get the girl to follow you back to your place and give you an examination to make sure you were ok?
