Well today after close to 12 months on my Ls (yes I am too lazy to go for my Ps) I crashed my bike for the first time. I had just left home and was no further than a kilometre down the road when I lowsided it on a roundabout due to some nice fuel slick left there by some....tool...being the nicest word I can say at the moment. Fortunately it was reasonably early in the morning and there was not much traffic around except for some nice bloke who helped me get back on my feet. Suprisingly I did not snap anything off my bike however did put some nice scrapes on the fairing, engine block, bar end, brake lever and exhaust. Fully geared I did not lose any skin (pays to wear full gear regardless of the conditions/length of your ride) and only ended up straining a few muscles on various limbs. However I am feeling extremely dirty at my lack of attention to the road (even though I was riding into the sun I probably should have seen it) and possibly my over confidence of my "riding ability" seeing I had been riding for 12 months without incident. Subsequently my beautiful Suzi is not so beautiful anymore and I'm pretty pissed off with the world. Anyway I just wanted to vent, been in a cruddy mood all day since it happened and have dashed my confidence a bit, especially on cornering.
