    Long story short; I was rear-ended while on a ride. No pictures of the bike crashed as I wanted to get up and back before the adrenaline wore off, but it was scrapped up good on both sides. Progressive came through for me and I was able to replace all the broken bent parts with aftermarket stuff and replace any wear items I could along with a few upgrades. Painted it my self and got the decals from Crispy Designs. Trying to save money on paint was probably not worth the time/effort. I really had a hard time prepping and painting and ended up re-doing several pieces. The paint really didn't turn out all that great, but that is what the decals are for.

    Still need to sort out a few things; ABS is not working and the chain looks a little tight now that I look at the picture. I have been really hard on that bike and it has stood up to all my abuse from riding to mechanical mistakes. She's a keeper!
