Hello everybody, just signed up here recently, and I got my first bike (a new 2002 ninja 500r) last tuesday, whenever I park it in my parking lot i have to go up a small concrete ramp to park it on the sidewalk in front of my car. Yesterday when getting off I lost my balance and dropped it very slowly ;-p Nothing too serious just a small scratch on the very corner of the upper cowl and I believe the rear brake pedal is bent slightly inwards so that it taps the side of the engine which can hopefully be corrected by bending it back into place. Oh yea and the turn signal was pushed into the upper cowl but being flimsy rubber and all it snapped back into place no problem. So I'm gonna take it to my kawi shop on thursday to see if it's anything more than I have analyzed so far.
But it's been a blast so far, I finished the msf course and I think I've picked one of the best to start out on. Very forgiving when it comes to the typical newbie mistakes.
In the end it all comes down to 1 and 0...
