I was out for a little ride with a friend that just bought his first bike. I was giving him shit and telling him that he better keep up. We were about 35 miles from home when I caught a lip in the pavement. I don't really know what I was thinking..... I saw it but I guess it didn't look as high as it was. My front tire went one way and the back end went another like a pin wheel sliding across the pavement. It felt like a graceful slide but still managed to tear open the knee in my best pair of jeans.
She's a little banged up
Some bent handlebars, controls, dent in the tank and busted up clutch.
Snapped all the studs in the clutch basket. This week I was going to make some stout mids that would protected the vital organs because I always seem to be dropping and crashing my bikes. I was a few days late.
The lip that fucked up my jeans.
It didn't take long to mess up my pretty gas tank.
The funny thing is I didn't have my camera on this day. I pulled out my camera phone and took these snaps. I'm quite amazed it it's quality. Thinking back.... Every time I have crashed on a motorcycle I didn't have my camera strapped around my neck. It is a very rare occasion that I would be riding without a camera. A lot of people have said that I am going to kill myself shooting from a bike which may happen but..... it seems I only have problems when I don't have a camera in my hands while I'm riding.
