Default I went flying today

I was in my garage moving my bike to do some work on the shield. I got off, it fell over on me, pushed me against wall, I busted sheet rock, I eventually lifted it up(sucker is damn heavy I am older I have back problems) before wife came out.

Only damage was my pride and my shield. Of course I'll provide pics later.

Dill forgot to put kickstand down.

I removed shield and hardware and went riding

98 degrees F today but did not care. I had to turn around and go home to get ear plugs... Wind noise was awful.

I have had the best time today.

Glad you are ok.
A broken shield is not so bad.
Bike still looks great.

So, I cleaned area where hardware was and went flying. My first bike was a shadow 750 and totaled it before getting a shield.

I forgot how much fun u can have without one but... I'm am going to get it replaced. More pics of my ride.

Dam Dill ever since you crash here a few weeks back you have been having crazy thoughts and now this.
Are you sure you're ok maybe you better lay in a pool and drink some beers for a day or two. Even see a doctor.

I shot six times at this sign and pretty sure 6 found the mark. Haha!!!

I did have a good time with no shield. No bugs because it was too hot. Not kidding!

I had been cutting down some holly bushes and hauling the crap away. Hated them ever since wife made me plant them 20 years ago. I was wasted and figured while nasty I'd wash bike. Would not have happened if I'd just gone inside and cooled off.

I had a shield from previous bike but would not fit.

Look! Today has been a killer day.

I made lemonade with a lemon of a day and I'm a happy man.
