My aircraft slid off the shoulder of the landing area while getting too close to the soft shoulder after landing. Damage occurred to both left and right wing tips and the right landing gear. No injuries occurred. The landing area should be marked to warn of soft shoulders. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following: aircraft was being landed off airport on a hardtop country road and when aircraft drifted off hardtop soft shoulder caused aircraft to veer into ditch causing minor damage to both wing tips as they contacted higher ground on each side of aircraft. FAA has classified as incident with no further action.
