I dropped her today, going maybe 4mph making a uturn at my work. forgot to clock out on the way home, u-turned right before the traintracks but on a gravel hill. gravel hills are very hard to u turn on apparently. i fell with the bike doing everything i could to prevent damage and let it land on my leg. ended up with a scraped knee, hurt pride, and easily fixable damage. luckily no cracks :p

all the damage is in this picture, my rearsets, exhaust, and levers all made it out okay.



and here is the pain and agony i am suffering from after the fall.

Glad you are OK!

Now you owe one hour of full lock turn circles in a quiet parking lot. Feet up, brake drag, clutch slip and near zero MPH. Eyes looking where you want to go!

Do figure 8s at full steering lock when you get it perfectly.

Na-na-na! Get back there! Do it in both directions! :cool:

I agree, it sucks...but glad to hear you only scraped up yer knee, coulda been worse. Nice to hear it didn't mess up your ride too badly either.
I dread the day I drop mine, ya know its gonna happen, always does, you just don't know how or when.

Scraped knee and pride will heal.

My pride is what was hurt the most on my fall as well,
oh well- you live and you learn ;)
