Anger + versys = wipeout
Well we all know that emotional riding is dangerous, and last night I realized it violently. We all have our problems in life, work, marriage, kids, and I failed horribly in keeping my wits. In a fit I dumped on the throttle, popped the clutch too fast, and proceeded to wheelie out of control down a residential street, turning the bike on it's arse, and feeling how hard asphalt can be on body and more so, my poor bike.
As humiliating as it was/is, I wanted to remind all riders out there how important a clear head is when you start your bikes. I have no idea how much the damage is gonna cost me, but the tail section, right peg, plate, swm bars, rh bar/grip/throttle all look to be toast. An expensive lesson, not even including how sore my a$$, toe and shoulder are. Thank god I'm a ATGATT kinda guy, even when very P.O.'d.
I'm very upset with myself regardless. I hope my message prevents at least one of you from ever even getting on your bike when emotions are dictating your actions. Safe riding, and if anyone has any stock tail parts or right side peg area bits for sale, I'll be interested when I can face looking her in her wierd eye once again.
