Went down

So I was with a buddy of mine going to the honda, ducati dealer on 45n and I was doing the u turn where my rear wheel caught some gravel. It sucked but the bike is fine and I got a little road rash on my left knee. But the awesome thing was that that kawi dealer was right there and fixed the bent clutch lever. Ill post pics of the damage later.
