I love it when we're self-sufficient getting the pieces back in place and back on the road. Nice pics too- makes it seem like it really happened
Scratch the gear at all?

No, actually. My left hip and arm contacted the ground, but no marks on my pants or jacket. Yet another piece of evidence of how slippery that asphalt was I suppose.

Car Washes

I had no idea, but thanks for the info. I only remember carrying a spare clutch lever on a Trip one time when I had just replaced with Pazzos. You are better prepared than I.

Horizontal slide

Glad you came out of unscathed with a positive attitude. The even greater lesson is being prepared for such a mishap with not only the tools but the parts to get the bike functional again. Kudos!

Having extra levers with you

The fact you had an extra lever with you saved your day. I never thought of carrying extras , but good idea, since it is very easy to break them if going down. I am ordering two immediately and will carry. thanks. PS remember to change your brake fluid yearly, since it absorbs water easily. Braking is very important, as we all know.

Yeah, levers are the first thing to break in a minor tip-over.
