Crash II

These kind of spots were tricky

Went out to test the new tires. They worked really well, but were no match for icy tire tracks and down I went again.

I lost the plastic tabs from the left front fairing that connect the fairing to the bash plate. The bash plate also is now missing a tab. The crash also bent the left side hand guard, but that was quickly fixed by bending it back to shape in a vise.

The damage would most likely been avoided if I had crash bars installed… which I recently did not recommend… I’m now reconsidering….

Lost both bottom tabs on the left side fairing
The zip ties “fuses” both snapped and perhaps even took some of the impact
bash plate lost one of the plastic tabs too
