I Can't Believe it...

If you've read my other posts you'd know that my motorcycling history has been painful. if not here's the rundown..

1. Bought Bike, no MSF, crashed first night out.
2. Spent money from a loan and replaced all the plastic and lil bits.. time to get bike back to perfect 2 months.
3. After MSF, rode bike, but electrical problem, stader/rectifier.
4. 2 months, 1 week after buying bike I get it back, operational, repaired, 100% perfect except for a small scratch on fram near gas tank with just 55 miles on her..
5. I ride for like 2 weeks, nothing special, put 600 miles on it and turn it in for 1st service.
6. My girlfriend (works at Yahama) called me today to tell me Yesterday there was a bad storm, 50+ mph winds, and my bike and others blew over. They will repair all the damage.
7. I am presently recovering from wisdom tooth extraction.

OK just needed to vent...whew...almost broke down for a sec....

Damn dude, seems like Mr. Murphy (as in Murphy's Law) decided to take a big crap on your head. Hopefully you and the bike get well soon.

Hell, I can't believe it either. Did you break a mirror or something?

I feel your pain.. and can relate. Wife and I were near Myrtle Beach,S.C. visiting all her family when my automatic Transmission goes out of my 95 GMC truck.I missed a week of work because of it too!this was last week. This week I broke off one of my crowns(teeth) and it is killing me . Me and my wallet have been taking afew hits lately.Not to mention the 500$ deductible I have to cough up after nearly totaling my zx9.But this too will pass!!
