Default Smashed my regulator and cracked starter

I was trying to ride over small patch of grass and go over a curb to asphalt... 3 miles per hour and regulator caught the curb. I tried cranking and runs fine. I'll take some pics later.

Bike is no longer perfect. Wonder if okay to ride it see what happens.

You gotta remember, this is a Street bike and works best on the Street. Just saying

Duh! You think!

Hey! I screw up if I drink and screw up when I don't. But guess what? I'm living life and thankful for the good and bad. I'm not trying to migrate to Germany and dying in a locked up truck. I'm not killing my wife a coworker and then myself. I'm riding and sharing the crap that happens to dill and happy as a pig in slop.

How's that for an answer? 😜

No it's not! It's a pot hole finder.

I have a tendency to be rebellious. I'm gonna glue it and put a fake radiator on it.

At the very least get yourself a tube of silicone and rub it all over that regulator. Then replace it as soon as you can. I guess you already knew that though.
