So I'm riding home the other morning after doing a 12 hour night shift. Cruisin down the highway, half asleep. It's very cold and foggy, I get into the right lane to turn right, I had the red arrow. I noticed a collapsed box [fruit box] on the ground right in front of me at the last minute. Next thing I knew the front wheel goes sliding out to the left, I shit myself and try to keep the bike upright, then BANG! I turf the bike on its right side. My 3000k old HD 09 Street Bob. So I pulled over, and look around, maybe there are some kids laughing near by or someone else to blame other than myself . It's 7am on a Sunday there's f-all people around of course :roll: . The damage - Bent bars Bent Right side forward controls Scratched exhaust [only noticable when up close] Slightly scratched right grip Scratched right mirror Scratched right indicator on front and back Could've been so much worse, but still it's a $700 lesson learned cause the bars need replacing and the internal wiring in the bars takes about 4 hours to re-wire or there abouts. Even worse I wake up at 1030am and hope that it was just a bad dream. So look out Con the Fruiterer, you're a dead man! Bright side is, now I have an excuse to buy some aftermarket grips But um, that's about it , I love the stock mini apes so i'm gonna just replace em. 7 years of riding on the road and I never realised just how deadly a collapsed box and wet road could be. I knew it wouldn't be good, but wasn't expecting it to be THAT bad. On parr with Tram tracks I gotta say. All I can say is sh$t happens.
