Well, me too...

When you buy your new tires at Motorcycles Unlimited and they tell you to be extra careful, take it to hart.
I was careful but not enough. I cut through that subdivision behind Motorcycles Unlimited to make my way back to Kurk... and was turning right at that light on my way back to Spring Cypress. I turned and was rolling on when I thought, "What is my bike doing over there?"
As soon as I registered the pain in my from hitting the road, I knew I had just went down. I was in full gear (as always) so I wasn't really hurt, just a big bruise on my .
The frame slider took the blunt of it and it bent the rear brake pedal a little. I would guess my speed at about 5 MPH. There are little scratched on the exhaust and the engine cover down low. A couple on the fairing where it comes up to the engine cover.

Be careful on your scooters. I didn't even know that I was down until I saw my bike's headlight where it almost spun around so I could see it.
