Default Well, it's been fun!

Yesterday at 6:15 pm Mountain, I had a little boo boo.

I hit the ditch with my Highball. I was heading onto an on ramp, leaned into my turn. I felt the bike lean like it's done thousands of times before. Then all of a sudden it stood straight up. I grabbed clutch and brake, but went in. I would like to think that I would've kept it upright but the ass end slid out causing my front tire to grab dirt. I went down hard. Luckily I walked away just being sore. My ego, and bike were not so lucky.

Sorry Travis P! I'm waiting to see what insurance says. I'm thinking its repairable.

The plan is to fix it. Regardless of Insurance. It doesn't look bad in the pictures, but in person you can see all the little things that are busted and bent. Gonna cost probably well over $2000 . If the forks are bent probably more.

Im saying sorry because I know you loved that bike as much as I do. Im not giving up on it though. I have my Yamaha to get going as well, so I won't be out too long.

Any ideas as to why it "stood straight up"?
Did it start to slide the rear tyre then grip and highside?
