So I made my trip to the ZDayz Fall Fling at Deal's Gap, NC. I was on my way to Fontana Village, where everyone was staying, making my way in on the curvy roads that make up NC-129. Well, I made my way around a particular "S" bend where killboy.com was shooting pictures for their website. As I came around the first turn of the bend, I stepped on the throttle in 2nd gear. Obviously, this wasn't a good decision. The back end came around on me very quickly, so I corrected. I corrected a little too much, and corrected the other way, sending my back end around on me again. I also made the mistake of lifting off the throttle. :doh:

Well, I went sliding off the cliff. Here are some pics of it.

:OMG: Scarey ****, man. I'm glad you came out of that w/o injuries. Who was behind you when it happened?

Noone was behind me.

The fender, sideskirt, and front bumper all have to be replaced. I'm considering my options at this point.

All in all, we came out much luckier than we should have. 10 feet to the right or left and we would have been in some deep trouble. Could have ended up flipping.

The title for the thread came from the mouth of the officer that pulled up to the accident. It was the first thing out of his mouth :lmfao: :lmfao: :lmfao:

That's a strong little tree that stopped you.

Glad to see you're ok.
