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.

Got my new Carbon Fiber Rizoma knock-off handle grips in the mail today...not too happy with the color, it's more of an orange-gold like Sato...but I can always get them re- anodized to the Ohlins Gold or just buy the real Rizomas like I had on before!

On the other hand, I just went & picked up my PSR Billet Kick-Stand that I just had re-anodized to the Ohlins Gold because it looked like the Grips or Sato Gold colour...turned out awesome but I eat thinking maybe I should've had the bottom part or sliding part done in black for a 2-tone colour effect...maybe next time...I am very happy with my Anodizer!

Sinister who does your anodizing?

I've got a set of Cycle Cat rearsets that I'd like done up in that Ohlins Gold color.

The guy that does the anodizing is here locally, you can send me the parts & I can get it done for you if you want, the price for my kickstand was 30 bucks, I don't think that your rear sets would be much more, turn around time will be 2-3 days + shipping!

Went out to Sean's place in Connecticut to layout the design of the paint that will go on, we both threw in our ideas and some other pointers on how it will turn out...it will be a real head turner that's for sure!

Where the magic will happen...
