Well I made it 4 years riding without incident. Unfortunately, that all changed today. Low speed turn onto a road being resurfaced and the back end slid out from under me. Laid the bike down pipe side down and slid about 5-10 feet. Luckily my leg under the bike seemed to keep most of it from dragging across the ground (with very minimal damage to my leg as well). The wonderful design of the bike allowed just about every protruding surface to fold up and I only ended up with a few scratches, and a cracked mounting bracket for my footpeg. Amazingly enough, the exhaust didn't even touch! A bit of road rash on my arm but all in all I guess everything turned out well.
