And I crashed the SV on tail of the dragon. After a few days of running it getting faster and faster, something was bound to happen.

Wasnt a very big crash. Was given a point by on a left turn and I took it. Back tire hit the center line and just spun out from under me. (crazy heat + fast run+ sport touring tire being used as a race tire = nono).

Frame slider and the bar end took the impact and the slide (along with the passenegr footpeg) so bike is 100% up and kept riding it.

Me? I was fully geared. Slid down the road and got up instantly. Barely a scratch on me (though I do need to repair my riding pants now)

Ah well. A lesson learned and all that. I still have a week of riding down here, and i plan to make the most of it!
