Went down at low speed this past weekend...

I went a little heavy on the front brakes before an intersection this past weekend and laid the bike down

The light was yellow and I was just going to go for it, but when i saw all the camera's and remembered i was in a photo enforced area I reacted to harshly and locked up the front brakes. I don't think i jumped on my rear brakes any, and it didn't help that i was over a painted right arrow sign on the ground.

was wearing boots, jacket, helmet, gloves & jeans. So serves me right that i was fine everywhere except a small bruise on my leg and a couple small cement burns on my knee.

Remember too that the intersections often have the most fluids on the ground (oils, water, etc) and can be more slippery in the center part of the lane too.

Glad you're OK.

I had the same exact bike. I put my framesliders on myself and it was pretty easy. Just pick some out them go get you a hole saw and make sure its the right size. Just take your time. If your not mechanical at all though you might just want to let someone do it for you. Pm me if you need any help bro.
