EDIT: yep she's dead. $9000+ to fix. Shopping time lowsided this morning into some armco just out of Broadford while travelling 2up with Sall . We are OK but Sally has some stitches on her knee...will get to that in a minute. Rear tyre slid on some gravel and down we went in a hairpin bend...bike went into the armco, we slid down the road. Had an ride in the blood wagon back to Northern Hospital in Epping. Spent most of the day in the Emergency Dept. Full extent of damage to the bike unknown, but this at least: Instrument cluster completly written off Handlebars look like a pretzel in a twist LH engine cover is bent Engine bottom casing has a nice large hole in it....broke the mounting bolt out where the side cover got bent Tank dented and severly scratched up Rear brake lever is crushed Both levers and mounting units are bent...this is also the brake and clutch reservoirs Front guard very scratched not sure yet if this is going to be a repair or a write off...she's only 8 month old The really bad... Sall's kevlar jeans performed below par, the denim and kevlar both ripped on impact with the road resulting in a gash on her knee (3 stitches) Rest of the gear did its job...going to need new helmets for both and an assortment of jackets, pants etc.
