  • Dumped my bike

    I finally did it. First time I've dropped the bike since I got it. Going maybe 25-30 in the parking lot at work, hit the front brakes, and some gravel at the same time, and promptly ate the pavement. I got away with a scraped up arm, and rashed jeans. The bike got a really cracked fairing, bad rash, and a broken brake lever, which I had JUST PUT ON the night before. (carbon fiber look). Oh well. And yeah, I switched jobs, which is the occasion of not knowing the parking lot very well, and also the reason I haven't posted much lately. Just haven't had time. Just wanted to let ya know.

    P.S.- 11.36@119.5MPH at the track on Wednesday. It's on video, too.

                      I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

                          Gravel, sand or oil, all of them suck!

                          There is no more stupid way to go down. Not your fault, nothing that can be done about it most of the time, and even if you were riding carefully, down you go...

                          At least, if you were pushing the limits, you knew the risk and enjoyed it. But because someone left some gravel, hate it!

                              At least you weren't almost stopped at a Stop sign, waiting to turn right to get out of a parking lot, and then the bike fell, and you had to do a quick look around to see if anyone saw you make a fool of yourself, but thanked your stars that it was REALLY early in the morning on a weekend and most people were still asleep .... oh, wait.

                              Never mind, forget what I said.

                              Uhh ... ummm... oh, yeah, glad you're (basically) ok.
