Front fenders are easy - it's the tub that blows. At Winter Romp this year I was on pure ice and suddenly started sliding sideways down a "hill" on the path...right toward a tree. Luckily, I was able to throw my oldest brother's 80's ski jacket onto the tree so that the branches wouldn't puncture the ST windows, and hoped I'd be able to just "slide off" the tree. I cracked the rear eyebrow, but I'd rather have that than damage to the rear tub.

Fender damage not so painful. Tub damage more painful.

I second 'Daddymow'.
"Just one more" always gets me in trouble. My four kids will ask for "one more" and I always say no or lecture them; however I don't take my own advice.

I just saw Bill Burke's D-90 at SCARR and he has a large dent on his front quarter; he says it is a 'good memory' and a 'lesson learned'. You appear to have his attitude about it.

Now, we will get to see the re-rebuild. Glad to read that you are safe.

Like Soronos and you said - in the bike and snowboard (and ski, skate, surf) world it's bad luck to say "just one more run". That's what immediately popped into my head when reading the story.

I would say just leave it. Makes for good conversation when people are checking out your truck.

One thing i would shit can are those light protector things for the rear of the tub. They do more damage then good.

Congrats Brewie! And I mean that in a good way. My 110 took so long to do, 3 years of blood sweat and tears, I am still waiting to pop my cherry and break something so I don't have to be so damn anal about my truck anymore. Cheers!
