So in my hurry to get under the garage door before it would close and crush me, I dropped my bike. I had the mail in my left hand and reached over with my right to pull the clutch, the driveway is sloped so the bike would roll in to the garage. Then the bike leaned over and was a bit too heavy to stop from going over. Luckily the forward movement was stopped and my attempts to stop the bike from falling slowed the fall. It came to a rest on the oggy knob and foot peg. I righted the bike and assessed the damage. I couldn't find any untill I looked where the bike fell and found a little metal object and after 10 minutes of thinking where the hell did this come from have identified the part. Luckily it's the only damage sustained, the fairings, exhaust etc. stayed away from the ground. I presume the piece it to scrape on the ground if i get over enthusiastic whilst cornering. What effect will it's absence have and would it be worth replacing the peg?
