1st Crash! :(

Had my first lowside today in the canyons. Came around a real tight turn a little wide and the front tire let go in some dirt. I was only going around 15mph or so. Anywho, Izzy has a wasted faring and a small hairline crack by the mirror mount. All in all I am pretty happy considering the small amount of damage. Of course I was wearing the power ranger suit so I walked away unscathed. Couple of shots.

You can't buff your bike with a brillo pad. See...

This is a testament to sliders.

Looks like an easy fix.

Glad you're allright!

Hay man. Glad your OK. All that stuff can be replaced, so I am liking your thinking...

I run sliders, and they can save lots of damage. But I dont see how not even going fast enough to get through the fairings is a testament to them?

The underbody sliders kept the bike from getting a lot more damage. I didnt even have a scratch on the front slider and no damage to the pegs or exhaust(that was mostly because my leg was still under the bike!) However I think that even though I wasnt going fast enough that frame slider keeps the faring from compressing and hitting everything else.
Strykerg1- the mirror was hanging off after the crash and the faring stay is cracked. Put a hairline crack on the outside by the mirror as well. Guess its time for that 1098R nose piece!

you might want to get a new guy to do that pinstripe job over....he bunched it all up in the center of your fairing instead of following the lines all over the bike!!

Glad you are ok and that the damage is not too bad....it could have been much worse/expensive!!

Your body is harder to repair than your bike...
Glad you were wearing the right gear.

Garrett glad your ok bro. Been in your shoes. You gonna let insurance fix it?

Bearbooth, go with Speedymoto. They are the most quality frame sliders you can buy, IMO.
