Well I guess I can now say I've been officially welcomed to Melbourne! Wet Road, Tram Tracks, Brand new GSXR 750... and bitumen Minor damaged to my poor machine - mainly cosmetic, snapped the left Ozy Knob clean off - actually ripped the bolt out of the thread. Left pick up lug snapped off, cracked the front fairing and ground down the gear box cover. Interesting thing was the bikes kill switch did not activate when it was on the ground. :?: My gear worked well, tiny scrape on my helmet, took the minutest amount of color of the Alpinestars logo on the elbow and tore a small hole in my pants. As for me, a sore shoulder and my right knee is starting to swell a bit? I must have smacked the bike on the way down. Left hip is a tiny bit sore but other than that, at the moment I feel ok... lets see how the day progresses!!! Bugger :? Bloody Tram tracks.... :?
