What if another motorcyclist came along and had the same crash as you?
Third lesson learned.
@Richbebe: Good to hear I'm not the only one! But it does make me wonder if there should be signs posted by car washes, just like "slippery bridge" signs, etc.
Lastly, I should have mentioned that this little incident also inspired me to ditch the lower fairings on my SV. Looks much better now anyway.
I sold the damaged lowers and used the money for motosliders frame sliders.
