      I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

          Ok. But the real question is HOW did you break your frame?
          Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

            T1, soft grass got a good grip on the rearsets and snapped the mounts, something I expect on Ducati but not on Hawk

                I've crashed there 1000 times. Usually a pretty good place to crash and not mess the bike up too bad.

                        Hope you’re okay. Plans to rebuild it?

                          It appears, from here, to be mostly cosmetic. Can you fire a new set of track fairings on it and still use it for track duty while you try and get the street sorts collected again ?


                          Listen, if you don't want to fix that I understand completely. Just pack it up and send it to me, I'll make sure I give it a good home

                            It'll be good - started stripping down for extensive rebuild and then it gets binned out for a V4s or an 1198.
                            That's what happens when a wide open throttle jams against a brake lever guard by shifting 2mm to the right. 130mph straight into a tyre wall. Just bruises & sprains. I'm luckier than Kylie, so there, ner.
