I laid her down!

Coming into work I hit low sided after running over some gravel during a left sweeper at about 30 mph. Those Hepco & Becker bars really did well, though the asphalt really grinded sections of them down. All is well except for a busted brake pedal and some scuff. Let the battle scars continue!

I used Rustoleum Satin Black spray paint to cover the area when my H/B crash bars got damaged.
