Rebuild Time!

On May 20th I crashed my bike due to the car in front of me slammed on his brakes & there was no time for me to react to avoid the collision, shit happens and we all are at risk while riding our beloved Ducati's.

Luckily it's only cosmetic damage & I walked away with a small scratch on my left calf from the rear set...

The fairing stay also got broken which I don't have a pic of!

Got some good news today...my insurance approved the rebuild for the bike...tomorrow it will be time to order new parts...can't wait to see the end result & get some riding in this year!

I can tell you this...the bike will be better, lighter & a touch different than what it was!

Ouch... that sucks. However, am grateful that you were relatively uninjured, and am looking forward to the rebuild. Yours was always one of my favorite bikes on .ms.

Did the crash damage your battery?
