Today Could Have Been Better....
« on: June 27, 2016, 01:33:24 am »
Dropped the C14 on a ride with my father-in-law.  Minor damage thanks to the frame sliders.....ugh this sucks. 

I hate when my stuff is not right, and I figured out what I did.  I stalled it making a very tight U-Turn and mistakenly wasn't in first gear. 

Stalled it and the heavy pig went over and threw me.  The Projektd frame slider and swing arm slider did a fantastic job. 

Lower fairing needs repair, sliders need replacement pucks, powdercoat on my custom passenger pegs needs touch up with some paint and I may have slightly "tweaked" the slider mounting plate.  So we'll see how it goes, but we'll ride it anyway.

I'll be sore in the morning (I am a pansy) but yes, mostly my ego is bruised....  Now we'll see how my 1600 mile ride to and back from Nebraska goes! I'll have some repairing to do when I get home....
