Got my bike a week ago (08 kawasaki 250r ninja) and on the Saturday I took my first ride. It mainly consisted of riding around a carpark for 35 minutes. Next day I took a ride around the carpark again to get a bit more used to the bike. After a bit of riding around the carpark I got bored so I decided to ride up a hilly road near my place. I successfully went up the road and decided to go back to my place and call it a day. While going downhill and turning left into a different street I got the sudden feeling that I was going a bit too fast into the turn. I also quickly noticed a portion of the sidewalk was a bit curved outward. That caused me to fixate onto the sidewalk and I crashed into it. Luckily I landed on grass and didn't get injured. Scratched up the fairings (right hand side), bent the rear brake (bent it back), snapped off the right indicator and broke the metal plate that you press your feet up against. Felt really stupid, but I've learnt that I should of slowed down before going into that turn and to NOT fixate on objects while going into a turn.
