4 months w/o riding just got bike back...
i moved out of state about 4 months and my bike and car where shipped on a boat here where im staying only their was problems with the paperworkd and i did;t get my bike out of customs until yesteday, anyway the deal is i haven;t rode any bike at all in 4 months and before that i have about 2 years and 70k miles of experience so im pretty good rider i would say, and when i had my bike being as it was mainly my main form of transportation i was pretty good with it i would throw that thing around like nothing becasue i was so used to being as i used to go to work everyday with it and even to the supermarket with my bookbag,
so i get my bike back yesterday and im riding around and its like i completley forgot how to ride, i can;t barely get my knee down like i was able to before, and even small wheelies im having trouble doing, now what im really pissed me off and this never happens to me was i went to a friends house and i got off the bike and i was manually moving it and i sorta loss my sense and let the bike lean over to the right too much and i dropped it! i was so pissed not becasue of the damage becasue i already had cosmetic damage in that very same area from when my idiot friend dropped it and broke the right side turn signals and brake lever and scratched the upper parts of the side fairings, all which i fixed exceot the paint scratches on the fairing, but im just really pissed that i let that happen, im i just a dumb and bad rider or is this somthing that can happen toanybody? and also in u turns im having trouble conroling the weight of the bike, its as almost if i got weaker and the bike got heavier, beforei would make u turns without thinking and manually push my bike like nothing not ever dropping it or loosing balance, maybe i just need to quit smoking
oh yeh and the new front brake lever i bought got bent like 100 degrees out when the bike fell, iguess it took the impact, i tried to bend it back with plyers but its too hard, im gonna take it off and see if i can hammer it back to place, any idea if it will hold or just break off?
