Peg dug in at about 40 in a long sweeper. Time for rearsets!

Yowsers! I hate draggin too, I'm getting some slot-back pegs until I can afford rear-sets, or relocater plates. Were you hanging off at all? I didn't drag much after I started hanging off more than I used to.

It doesn't look like ya damaged it TOO bad though, all things considered.

Aw man that sucks...

The upper is easy to fix... Touch up paint and some rubbing compound.

The side you can get for about $250, the tail you can slap on a sticker.

Probably not worth going through your Insurance Co.

Are you OK?

The side's all glassed up. Just have to sand and sand and sand and sand. Planned on painting it anyway. At least that's what I keep telling myself to feel better about it. :) The side actually held up until it went backwards when it hit the dirt.

I was hanging off a fair bit, but not as much as I could of. It was a short fall, maybe about a foot.

I'm fine. Did a pretty little slid on my shoulder and arm down the road a ways. A little sore, but the pads took all the scraping. Now I’ve got to figure out how to patch my jacket. I can fix the bike, but this damn home-ec stuff’s got me. Didn’t hit my helmet though. Woo hoo!
