Ok so I'm running down the highway to work this evening and was coming up on a semi & went to pass him. Next thing I know is BAM! My knee and crotch scream out like they just had a visit from my ex wife! Swerving insured and radical application of throttle gets me through it! Get to work & my fairing looks a little different than when this adventure started.... See pics below!! But knee/crotch appear to be ok-no blood no foul..... I just found it strange that I was reading posts last night about passing trucks quickly & tonight I get popped! Just glad whatever it was didn't hit me in the bean!!! Ride safe brothers!!!
Something is a miss...... And yes I know she's a bit dirty!!!

Glad you came out of that with no personal bodily damage. Like other have said bike can be fixed.

A dirty bike is a sign of a rider. Like a cluttered desk is the sign of a genius. That's why Obama's desk is cleared and a weekend warrior's bike is spotless.

No it wasn't a bird=no feathers. Think it was asphalt or a chunk of tire because I think I saw a flash of black when it happened. But it was so fast I can't really tell. Looked in the mirror & just saw lexan all over the place so who knows???
