I'm looking for some road rash and fender damage pictures.

I've had some accidents in my day, feeling nostalgic.

Anyone have any?

Very odd indeed. All my crash damage gets repaired asap. I wont ride a tatty scooter by choice. But I might have some scruffs. I'll look later when I get my scooter back later today. Its currently on loan.

Just got my Liberty back. This damage drives me bonkers! I should replace it but it's staying as a reminder to cross railroad tracks with extra caution!

I sort of consider myself lucky: Melody's front fender took the brunt of the collision I had in March, which of course was easer to deal with than any frame damage would've been.

I'm still waiting for a new front fender, after a Bambi encounter of the impact kind. I was told "6 weeks" to get a new fender from Italy. Coming up on 3 months now. In the meantime, I have taken to calling it my Vespa bobber...

Busted the fender in two...

Bike stayed upright - love the ABS brakes. Bambi didn't fare so well.

Oxymoron,

You guys are strange. Everyone, spin around twice, knock on wood, spit into the
wind and throw a Voodoo Curse on these pictures.

I'm all over that, Bob, if it will help AF1 get my fender replacement.
