The big twin is tougher than me, it recieved a few minor scratches and I recieved bruised ribs and messed up muscles in my shoulder, chest and back

Ouch! I hope you are ok!?

Roger that. Like my buddy says, I'm tired of learning lessons, I'm ready to teach some!

Glad you and the bike are ok!

I am sorry to hear about the shoulder, bumps and bruises but please tell me you did not damage that Italian screen. I know what it would cost to replace.

No worries, other than some more "character" scratches the bike is one piece.

Carbon tanks guards really worked
