Exclamation HAD MY FIRST LAY OVER

Its not bad just scratched up the side fairing and broke off the brake light. I had gear on and it did its job. The helmet doesnt have a scratch on it and my new textile did perfect and only frayed the stitching on it. But i was wearing just blue jeans and they now have rips and holes in 'em and my knee meat is gone lol But im more worried about my bike lol i got it off and out of the intersection and to a gas station and it started right back up so yahhhhh Kawasaki !!!!! They're tougher then a wart on a hogs a$$ :laughing6 Well now ill just get the fairing painted along with my new seat cowl and undertail i bought and itll be good to go.......oh yeah whats funny about this is after it landed on me and i was in the middle of the road i got it off me and my buddies were running toward me off their bike to help me and i was so and adrenaline (sp?) pumpin so much that i leaned over, grabbed the handel bar with just one arm and picked it up and drug it to the gas station.....with just one hand lol oh well ill post pics......hope this got a little humor to it

U turns can be a bit*h but if you find a empty parking lot and practice them, balance and clutch control is how I do them..

A little trick I use in U-turns is back brake just ever so lightly while throttling thru the turn.

Sorry for your Kawa , man I hope that knee heals up quick.

glad you werent seriously hurt. yup, denim jeans are alot better than sweatpants, jogging wind pants or SHORTS :confused1 , but they dont make you invincable.

for some reason people hear "you should at least wear jeans when you ride..." and they take that to mean "my Levi's will protect my life when i fly down the highway at triple digits"... :laughing6

this isnt directed at you by the way...ive been riding for a long time, and i finally got some aramid/steel re-inforced, joe rocket jeans...
