Yeah, had to happen on my new bike didn't it!!! So anyway, here's what happeneded I went on a tour ride with some poeple off of the Weekend Riders forum - great bunch of poeple on there I must say - and we rode from bli-bli, all the way down to peachester or near brisbane, taking the scenic and winding tourist road, which was great because the whole way we encountered twisties galore! So anyway we went down, then came back the same way, but when we went along obi-obi, on our way to kenilworth, things went pear shaped. I went into a sharp bend carrying way too much speed - not sure how fast I was going initially - but I first locked up the rear brake, paniced and pulled in the clutch when I really should of used my gears, then I locked up the front end repeatedly, jittering the front wheel with it, went into a tank slap, locked up the rear again and broadslid into the gaurd rail. It hurt, but there's no broken bones, just a bit of bruising and all the bike has in terms of damage is scratches, and a loose lower bolt on the right side riders foot peg. I am still very much able to use the bike, I just need to helicoil the bolt hole and put the bolt back in all snug and tight, then it will be almost as good as new, plus get the fairing resprayed. I can post some pics if poeple wanna see what got nicked... Just glad I am still here, and I will still be riding for as long as I can.
