Angry Ahhhh low slide! Mission buy new fairings :(

Last night I laid her down! I was doing about 95 and went into about a 30 degree turn. Not a big deal at all but there was 2" thick stick in the road that I clipped and it sent the rear tire up in the air. I managed to get it back down but but by the time I did I was headed straight off the side of the road. Locked up the brakes and eventually landed on my right side, came off the bike and supermanned into the gravel on the side of the road. Gloves are toast both palms are completely gone. Jacket did fairly well but wore through on my chest where I had something in the pocket but other than that just looked like a couple scrapes. Was wearing jeans but luckily it was cold and I had about 3 layers underneath that. Helmet did great but is pretty beat up. Im gonna have to look for a new one .. Think I made it out of there fairly well but Im quit depressed at the amount of money im going to be spending to get her back into shape.. Fairings, Inner fairing stays, Probably just clean up that cover and paint it, Helmet, Gloves, Jacket......... so much money being a college student without a job. But well thats my story

Glad your okay. All in all it doesn't look too bad considering the speed you went down at. My palms were fucked up worse than that when I went down at 50mph but then again I wasn't wearing gloves.

If you havent done so already, id recommend seeing a doctor. I didn't, and ended up riding home with a concussion without realizing it. It felt like i was leaning off to the side and I thought my forks were fucked up because of the wreck..... turns out it was my head that was fucked. :lol

You got fucking lucky. Good to hear you're alright.

+1 on seeing a doctor. You're probably pretty sore today. It's best to make sure you're not going to have problems down the line.

So all healed up. Checkout out some oem fairings on ebay and blah blah blah the cheapest I could find them for was 1200-1500 bucks and then I looked at shark-skinz and I was still looking at over a G. Well I couldn't make sense of it in my mind of spend 1/4 of what the bike is worth on just plastics. So I just got a 400$ set from hong kong. Not bad on the fitment, just a few places I had to tweek. Overall I dont think it looks bad, minus the poser stickers at the bottom.
