Well today I performed a bafflectomy on my pipes and was stoked about the beasty new sound I was getting. Feeling manly I rode down to my rider friends joint to show it off (and my shiny new P plate). The ride down everything was all good but when I showed up on his driveway things got a little seedy. Usually when I ride to his I have to move off the driveway past his cars and through a gate at the end, and due to the rain today all of his front yard was just mud. Well I got past the cars and when I braked to stop, the bike slipped from under me and I snapped the bike in the mud. ](*,) Thankfully nothing was damaged except the gear lever which got bent slightly, and a little dent in my ego.. seeing as my friends sister and a few of her friends were all there to see. :| Not really a near miss but I thought I'd share anyways.
