Default My bike, before & after 56k warning

I laid my bike down pretty good in July...I was going 40ish around gentle curve, and it slipped out from under me. I managed to get it in the grass ditch before laying it down which was good in that it minimized rash on the body. But it did bust all three front fairings, a handlebar, and the windscreen, which would have cost me about $500. I ended up patching them with fiberglass. While i was at it, i decided to get rid of the purple! I'm real proud of my paint job...it turned out great, better than before. (i don't have any pictures of the damage...too embarassed to take any)

Nice bike.

If you ride a bike, its not if you will lay it down, it'* when. I'm on another forum that has a lot of bikes, and all of them have layed them at one point or another.
