Hi All! Basicaly subj Riding for just couple of weeks. So far everything was good - trying to get used to bike, gain confidence, practicing mainly late evening (no traffic) and really enjoing riding. Yesterday discovered that parking nearby is empty (usually lots of cars even after 10pm) and decided to practice u-turns and all that slow stuff. Guess what - dropped bike Well, not actually dropped - rather more or less gently laid it down on the left side (zero speed). No visible damage at all. Nevertheless some strange symptoms: 1) After dropping engine refused to start. After 5-6 attempts it finaly started only after i gave plenty of throttle. Then tried to switch it of and start again - OK, but engine behaved/sounded as if it's cold (could not be cold after 30km ride + 20 minutes doing u-turns). 2) Rear brakes stopped working - pushed it all the way down - no resistance and no braking. Again after 10-15 tries brakes gradually started working. Luckily that parking is just 1-2km from my place so I ride bike gently back home without any more adventures. Anyway I felt as bike power is dropped a little, bike was not as responsive to throttle as before (possibly it is my imagination though). I'm not quite technical (at least with bikes) so wondering what's could be wrong and how serious it is. Of course I understand that I must take bike to professional to look at. Here comes another question - does anynody know decent service somewhere in Sydney east (Bondi Junction - Rose Bay)? So far I know only Close motorcycles in Redfern but it's a bit far anyway.
