Back from a crash.
I had an accident with my RC51 back in December that has had me layed up until last week. I hit some black ice at about 15 MPH as I was pulling away from a stop and it swapped ends and body slammed me. I got hurt a lot worse than the bike did. I had a broken pelvis and a couple of broken ribs. I had 28 screws and 3 plates inserted to repair me and I've been on crutches and a cane up until last week so I'm ready to get the bike repared now.
Here's a picture of the damage on the RC, which really isn't too bad. It broke the end off the clutch lever, broke the left handle bar weight, broke the left foot peg and the lug for the swingarm spool was broken off. The shift lever is bent but I should be able to straighten it with no problem and the left fairing is cracked where the stud for the crash bung was bent. The fairing will be easy to repair as well. The left hand muffler has some minor rash, but since the left and right mufflers are interchangable, I'll clean up the scratches at the rear and swap them between sides.
If the weather cooperates I should have it back on the street in a couple of weeks.
