It was a hard hit . . . crushed the engine guard. Dairyland adjuster said the case is cracked. Time to find a new bike :'(

Good news is a little bit of oil can look like a lot when on pavement.
No, no highway pegs. Just a stupid mistake on my part. The case hit the curb around a tree. Next bike I'm going to buy the cones and save the bike.

feeling like a clown



This pretty well sums up how I'm feeling right now . . . what an idiot.
