Me and the Brutale went.............down :(

Yesterday evening after closing up my store.
I start the bike on the way home .
First slow 90 degrees corner , cold tires , cold tarmac , it was 4 degrees celsius or 32.9 fahre....
To hard on the gas , some spilt gasoline on the tarmac...bang and next second both down.
My body had 2 bruises , small hole in my 2 weeks old Jacket (good warm and protective motorcycle jacket).
The bike pfffffffff , left side bit damaged
Gone start a thread in for sale section , for the parts i need.
Had spare orignal rearsets and blinkers , and bought carbon engine cover today and bar weights.

Not pretty, hope you get it sorted.

May I recommend crash pads? They would save your frame.

Check your steering stop on top of the bottom triple clamp for bend, mush or crack. If so your left bar will come too close to the tank.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

Get up and Go!

As most, I've had my experiences with crashes. I never allowed that to slow me down. I found that it helped me focus, which led to smoother riding. When you get back on, smile and get right back into the groove.
