Well I am good friends with the owner of Lay It Down Customs. Taht could be my problem.
Nah, it's just a combination of exquisite timing and reflexes, and a habit of going a hair too fast while on gravel. Anyhow, thanks for the welcome. I've been drooling over the OD Green Versys thread. I'm figuring as long as I need to replace the front fender and get some scratches out, I might as well sketch up a "Flying Tiger" paint job and see what my paint guy says.
Crash bars, relocated pegs/controls, and a new pipe are on the list, and possibly some 80-20 tires. Anyhow, I'll make sure I post a couple pics of my poor wounded baby before the weekend. Planning a ride from Orlando to Lakeland if the weather holds!
