welll sonofab%$#h.....

So i finally decided to get the bike out of storage this weekend, mostly because it's nice and i thought i had a little time......

Plus i was going to let a bud borrow it to ride around a little......


so i throw the battery back into the bike, fire it up, let it warm up and while i'm checking things over decide i'll go ahead and throw the seat back on......

While i'm installing ti, I'm standing on the left side of the bike, and lokking down the right, and i notice that the rear M/cyl push rod looks weird......

so I'm thinking to myself "self....has it always been sorta jacked to an angle a little bit?"


thats when i notice that the whole piece of the rearset that it connects to on my Gilles rearset is CRACKED......

I'm thinking "WTF!!!!"

Then i remember that late lazst year, the bike got tipped over when a tornado came through town, and we had some seriously high wind gusts........

Well i thought i had found all the damage, which i had believed to be limited to a snapped off bar end slider bolt, some rash on the right side lower (which is going to be replaced with Carbon anyways) and some scuffs on the clutch slider........

Guess not......

Now i'm waiting to hear back from Gilles on how long it'll take to get the parts.....

Never fails, does it.....


The only good thing is I would have felt really bad if the peg had come off while the buddy was riding it, and probably if he had crashed or done any damage been pissed at him when it wasn't his fault......

oh well.......

It's only money, but the missed time is gonna really piss me off......

Moral of the story is never loan your bike to a freind as if it gets broke you will blame him.

Maybe that was a good thing? Your friend wasn't meant to ride that day. Like you said, it's only money.
