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.
glad you are ok.....

now wait for someone to post up that dampers are not needed and they are only band-aids for a poor suspension set up....
