Shiny side down

Unfortunately I went down today, slow speed crash apparently I left the choke on and gave it too much gas coming out a turn and she jumped on me I hit a curb and and cracked a coupling in my coolant hose. Thanks to Dustin (street ninja) for the info and offering to ferry me hm and Isaac (icedsuzuki) for patching me up to get hm. I'm ok just a bruised ego but seems like bike is headed back to Motorcycles Unlimited pics of damage attached.

Ouch, always hate to hear of a fellow rider eating it, but at least you were uninjured. On a positive note: since your exhaust is banged up it would make for a good excuse to put a set of Muzzys on there.

We all fall down sooner or later. Glad you weren't injured. Bike doesn't look to be too bad off at all.

yeah half way through my front flip I was like glad this is just a 250. Bike was pretty after I picked it up was runnin pretty rough but evened out after a while come tuesday we will see what kind of damage I inflicted.

Looks all cosmetic, thankfully.

Glad you're ok. Bikes are easier (and fun-er) to replace.
