I spotted a black/purple zx9r partially exploded on the side of the road in langley.. oh wait, its mine.

Nevermind.

Guess I can join CG in the 'Haters of trucks that drop water" club, and head up the "especially when its chilly enough in the morning to freeze" division.

Props to the guy in front of me who stopped, gave me all his info, called it in and witnessed the fact that there was black ice on the bridge, even though it doesn't matter in ICBC's eyes.

that sucks :( stupid trucks that drop water :( Oh well, part of motorcycling, things on 2 wheels like to fall over....

so the bike is a total loss? or you just kidding when you said it "exploded on the side of the road"??

details man, details...

Nothing but ego damage here, little rash on my leathers (left arm/hip).

Bike didn't completely explode.. the front end tucked on the slick spot, dropped on the left side and slid into the rear bumper of a white safari. The front assembly/cowling is busted, left side fairing rashed, clutch cover broke open and dumped oil, no idea on internals/forks etc. Seemed to roll fine when I walked it off the road.

Yeah :(.. Jason, its a deal.

Happened on the 200st. bridge.. there's lots of construction around there for the new bypass so there's been a lot of dirt/water/whatever around for at least a month. Just so happened today was my unlucky day.
