The inevitable happened tonight...

Yup.... I slipped on some gravel while reversing out of the parking lot. Of course, the one day I decide not to wear my boots and knee/shin guards this happens. Bike damage on the fairings was very very minimal. Light scratches [might buff off in fact] thanks to the huge muffler. I definitely wont remove that stock muffler. Break lever is bent a tad as well but I drove the 250 for 5 months with a bent break lever... Im used to it.

Oh well, I guess its time to sell the bike...




































NOT!
pics of the carnage later. pics of the damage tomorrow.

LMAO you read my mind. But I dont have a muffler on the left side so the rear tail fairings will surely be injured

On a more serious note, I wonder if they actually thought it over [muffler] in their R&D that it actually protects the bike from falls. I hated the 250 for having twin pipes but I kinda want twins now lol.
