First gear pants: Had long johns and a second rain liner underneath. Damage to both lower outer leg areas.

Left Bilt boot showing where I'm thinking toe contacted the road under the force of the bike. Nothing dramatic. Just some rash and mild deformity.

Left hand HippoHand.

Here still on bike.

Left hand Happytrails Pannier grounds down. Still opens, closes, and latches fine. Probably no longer waterproof though.

Some front fender contact.

Left side windscreen and fairing rash.

Right side fairing breakage.

Bottom line is I need to figure out why the tire went south. I did re-use the tube but I partially inflated it and did a leak test in the sink which it passed. I remember it popped nicely when I seated the bead.

Maybe I should stick to my Hack Rigs!

Be safe out there.

I don't win shit.
