First drop is officially out of the way

Only damage is the end of the brake lever. and some stupid bar ends that I was going to remove anyway.

Frame sliders took the hit though and not a single scratch on the rest of the bike.

I did the noob thing and stalled when I was taking off from a stop sign. I was already leaned over a little bit and didnt get my feet down in time to catch myself.

Some guy in the neighborhood, stopped and ran over to see if I was ok, but by then I had already picked up the bike and started to become at myself.

, where was spiderman when you needed him.. LOL

It was on my list of things to get... Those stock levers are ugly anyway.

It just broke the tip off of it... So I just took a grinder to the end to smooth it out a bit so it doesnt annoy me.

My very first bike I did the exact same thing.
Guy I bought it from told me that I should "lean" into the turns. I was at a stop sign, started giving it throttle and leaned, it choked and KRUNCH!
LOL...
