I checked it with the anti-freeze tester, shows good to -26.

Figure put in a cup of regular anti-freeze should be ok.

That really sucks...sorry to hear about the bike. I presume OKish doesn't mean any injury but pissed off about the situation.....

Been dealing with the body, torn up ankle, cast not required (bonus), broken rib in chest will heal, but makes it very painfull to use the crutches.
Going to trailer the bike home tomorrow, it aint ridable. See what's what.

I don't blame the gate, or the sunglasses. I would have to say the CT got me off course slightly.
I blipped the throttle with some clutch help whilst leaving, the driveway turns some. Normal MC tire would have chirpped and slid out sideways and drifted as I had hoped, however the great tractioning CT picked the front up in the corner and staightend me out, so I sort of ended up a couple feet deeper into the corner than I planned. My right hand just touched the Cedar hedge at the edge of the driveway, thought I was Ok, the skinny end of gate was sticking out 3 inches from the hedge, never saw it... I caught it pretty good. instant hard crash. Went down on the left side.
This would be the only downfall I find with the CT,.. is... if you are going to stunt,... as I can't seem to stop doing....some sort of problem with the right wrist..." ID10T"..., and you have roughly 100hp, the Car tire can be very unpredictable.
