Sign me up for CDA

 Well I dropped her in a parking area here in West Virginia. We stopped to look at a waterfall, we got ready to leave and I was making a slow speed turn on a slightly off cambered parking area, got a little slow, I put my foot down to steady her in the turn, the bike moved forward just enough for me to loose my leverage. I tried to move my foot forward for another try to save her, but she was past the point of no return. Down she went on the left side. I wasn't hurt, but Connie got a broken mirror mount and scratches on the fairing and saddle bag. A roll of tape fixed the broken mirror base and it was on with the trip.

No, I was riding solo. Ordered a new mirror assembly from Ron Ayers, it came in today. I should have the bike back together tomorrow.
