Well it had to happen sooner or later... today being a really nice day to ride. Me still being a new rider I decided to go out to a paraking lot and practice some emergency stops. Did that for a while then started heading back home. As i was going around the neighbourhood i decided to do a lap before i park it. then all the sudden i'm feeling a little braver having just practiced so decided to to take the corners a little faster... you can see where this is going. Then as i'm going into a corner i've seen plenty of times before i notice somebodys blue bin had been in the middle of the road i was already going pretty fast when i noticed. and i needed to change my course while turning to avoid it. As the curb got closer and close i realized i was gonna run out of road. so all i could do was hop the curb. I hit it pretty hard my forks fully compressed and i was almost shot straight off the bike. somehow i ended up landing back down on the seat and was now riding along the sidewalk. hahaha all the while some guy washing his car is staring at me. Do you think there may be any damage to my forks it hit so hard that the fender has a scracth from hitting the upper fairings.
