Yeah, i dropped mine last month for the first time (ninja 250) in front of the movie theater, no one asked if i was ok, 5 miles per hour and turning to tight within 15 secs of riding when you aren't on the top of the game, and wow.... My bike flooded and took 15 mins to clear.... Embarassing, but good thing is it does happen and nothing to be ashamed of. live and learn.

Ride safe!

glad you are ok. Now, go take your bike in for a once over with a good service center (M U). You take care of it and it'll take care of you.

Fugin sucks don't it?
They all go down... no stopping that.

Glad your okay, I walked around with a sore hip for three days. Did just about the same thing on new tires, less than 10 minutes old.
Cagers were going around me on both sides.

A-holes!

That happened to me the other day. I parked on a slight incline, and the kickstand did not go all the way down. I did not realize this until I started to see the bike slip. I caught it halfway from the gound, but still sucked. Bent my mirror a little, but nothing that couldnt be fixed....

Sucks. Been there before man. Glad you are OK. At least you got your first fall down. On the bright side this is why most of us start with a cheaper bike, cause it's not a matter of IF it's going to happen, it's a matter of WHEN it's going to happen. Take a lesson from it and keep on truckin mang.

Chicks dig scars :-) Good thing you made the right decision and went to cheap route, otherwise this little accident on a 600 could have been costly. GLAD YOU'RE OK!!!
