Started by killing my battery in the stop-start lineup at the border. Very nice border guard gave me a push on the other side to bump start it.
Then in one of the lower slow switchbacks on the way up baker I felt like I was going a bit wide. I looked down to check if I'd touched the small soft shoulder, then bang I was on it. Okay, avoid the brakes and slowly turn back. Oh look over there, there's a small ditch to the side of the shoulder, I wouldn't want to.... bam. A couple cars stopped and helped me lift the bike out of the little 1-2' ditch. Scratched up the crank case, frame slider, edge of the rad and a bit of the frame on the gravel. Left signal and faring is scratched and cracked to shit. My new alpinestars smk jacket and technics pants did their job though, I have a nickel sized scrape on my elbow and a small bruise on my hip and thats it.
I got over being angry at myself on the ride back and now I'm just trying to figure out where to go from here. I always wanted to go naked anyway, maybe now is the time? How do I deal with ICBC (or do I deal with them at all) in this case? I hear they write off a bike if the frame is scratched? My premiums will probably all also go up if I report it? Am I better off just paying out of pocket to fix it up?
 Oh yeah, also managed to spill gas all over my tank thanks to a gas handle that doesn't stop flowing until the shutoff valve hits... release the handle, it keeps going! Yikes. Then I watched a semi jackknife right in front of me on the 99 on the way back home.
