Damn! Machine slided away on braking on wet ground!

I am so angry. It was on a business trip I had to absolve for my customer. It was raining but I lacked a car so I took my bike. Big mistake! On my way back (total trip was 200KM) at the last signal I had to brake and in within a split second the front wheel slided on the wet ground and I fell down with 50 km/h.

Lucky me no traffic behind me. I had no injury at all (total leather outfit).

Damage as I can see so far:

Clutch lever broken (I ordered new CNC ones 5 days ago anyway...)
Gear pedal broken
Mirror broken (They were to bulky so what...)
Big scratch behind the rear seat
Some scratches on the tank.

I hate rain!!!!!!!!!!
So it is time for a custom paint job.
Any suggestions?

Check your left frame streering stop.
Thanks Bro,

Bellezza goes to the dealer next week. I already noticed steering stop has changed position. According to an other thread here it is fixed with a screw and needs to be repositioned.
