    not sure if this piques anyones interest but figured id share anyways. not long ago, with still under 600 miles, i got into a little accident on my svart. car made a left turn right in front of me and the bike went straight into the passenger door of the car. axel completely bent out, and the forks/frame *may* be bent too. dealer has been looking it over to make a quote with insurance adjuster but doesn’t feel like it would be fixable, and told me i should start looking into another bike. sad news 🙁

     

    will post pictures soon if anyone interested

    So good news.. the bike is coming home in a couple weeks! dealer swapped the axle, and the frame measured out alright. Seems like it won’t be totaled thankfully. I myself did take a minor hit and fractured my wrist (which went into the car that hit me) but with a few screws and a plate, the hand is still attached and with a little physical therapy, i should be able to do a little riding when the bike returns.
