Glad you're okay. Now you know what its like, so no more worrying about it.
Practice, Practice, Practice.

Glad to see MH members offer help but I just gotta ask though, whoever owns the Duc can't help you???? Or did I miss something in an intro?

If there isn't a parking lot close by, just wait for the weekend and get started early. Don't worry about the fairing, but replacement turn-signals should be cheap and will keep you legal.

Target fixation will get you every time. I made it about two weeks before I lowsided just before a curb, it would have been nice to get it out of my system earlier.

MrCycle.com is good for parts. Very reasonable too. I ordered a side panel for my R1 from them. Dealer wanted $350 or so and i got it for about $100 cheaper, factory matched color and it arrived in about a week after order. You just need to know the factory part # and color code and you're good.

I work on 249/spring cypress. About 30 seconds from the valley ranch.

I have cones that I used to set up in empty warehouse parking lots. It helps A LOT. I would be more than happy to lend you those cones so you can practice, and even help you myself but I have a packed schedule with a full time job and school.

Bad video but here is when I used to practice with a friend of mine, I had maybe 3 weeks of riding expierence when i made this video

and yes i had my gear on helmet and gloves no motorcycle jacket yet but i wore a regular jacket and jeans. helmet saved my face. actually im more hurt about my bike then myself

i havent even got to take pics of it before i messed it up! the nice guys that stopped to help me pick up my bike bended out all the parts for me and said it was ridable, just cosmetically damaged. like the front part and the right fairings are broken, blinkers, and so is the windshield, and im wondering how much will it probably cost to replace all of that?

and if anyone lives by 249 and spring cypress (5 min from willowbrook mall) let me know if u would like to help me practice in a neighborhood tomorrow during the day and give me some tips about riding. i took the basic rider course at awesome cycles about 4 months ago, so im basically new again
I am just a bit north from you in the neighborhood behind the Walgreens on 249. Sorry about the bike. Baby steps and all...

Silverado parking lot before 10am is a good place to practice. I have some old tennis I cut in half that I have used with friends as cones. You are welcome to borrow them.

I've spent the last 3 months rebuilding an 06 Ninja 250 almost from the frame up - was "given" this thing for $100 and It's nearly complete all for under $1000 (including a replacement engine). Almost all of my parts new and used have come from ebay and there is a ton of stuff for the 08-10 250s. Funny thing is, the new generation stuff seems to be cheaper than the 88-07 parts. Once you're ready to patch it up, you can likely find it all there. The red is popular.

Glad you're ok and it hasn't taken a toll on your enthusiasm.

dang sorry to hear about your mishap but you're not alone. I hit a little gravel on a unfamiliar turn the first evening I rode my bike and fell off. I did the same thing as you just jumped right back up and checked on the bike lol.

Just keep practicing and you'll be fine. The signals are cheap and now you can upgrade the windshield.
