The mother of all tank slappers....

Well, it happened to me this summer.
Riding on the expressway, my tire took a glancing blow off of a chunk of pavement & sent the bike into a very bad 85mph tank slapper. I fought it for a few seconds & could not recover. I did manage to get it to the shoulder before it highsided me at 60mph or so. The black mark is from my bike fishtailing.

I repaired the bike & she now sports a beautiful new black Emig Racing damper & black triple clamps.
