Angry Dropped

I was leaving work, and I hit a little patch of sand at the end of the parking lot, lost control and went into curb at like 2 mph, scratched some of the paint off the rim, but didnt dent it...also caught the bottom of the fairing with the curb some minor scratches

ITs all good im just happy i didnt lay it down all the way...Im going to try and buff out the fairing scratches..

does the dealer have the same color pain as my wheels so i can touch it up?

Probably not in stock. I know there are a few places on here that sell paint to match, check the Detailing section. Good luck!

worst part of owning a brand new bike, the fear of scratching it.

Glad to hear it was minor. My first drop ripped parts off my left fairing. Hope it fixes up easy!

Best thing to do is watch out at the corners, along with entrance to exit of fuel stations & especially ones that have wash places with the crap running down the exit or entrance rather then normal sand/grit. Remember when a car enters or exits a place the cage will dump some of its gravel/grit still up on the chassie, frame, etc.
