New to Moto Houston and just wrecked my bike

Hi there, my name is Luis Garibay and I currently own a 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-9R. Im 18 years old and Ive been riding for about six months now. I got the bike in the first place because of my dad that didnt want me to join the Army, so he offered me a bike and I said why not. I knew the risks, and I gladly accepted them. So on Sunday January 4th I went out with a friend to check out the bikes and go ride for a while, and I guess I just got too confident on those turns because I was feeling pretty well and there was this turn I hit a little too fast for my ability and I was running out of road and stupid me presses on the breaks, so I ended up going in the ditch and high sliding off the bike and I probably landed about 50 feet from the bike, I was ok, but my bike wasnt. The whole left side got all scratched up, a couple of dents on my tank, and the fairings are history. So if anyone could PLEASE help me out I would gladly appreciate the help. But either way I cant thank you guys enough for being with me and stopping to help me when I went down, I couldnt have asked for more at the time, so thank you all SOO much and if there is EVER any way I can lend you guys a hand just feel free to ask, its time for me to return the favor. Ride safe and bless you all.

Gald you said that I was going to go and ride with group A. Guess that makes me a group B then. I can do all that stuff just a LOT slower than a group C

yea, really you could ride with either, if you have NEVER been on the route, i would recommend riding with the newb group, just because its new territory.
maybe on the way back you could jump to b, really its all about how comfortable you feel when you get going out there.

Welcome to MH. If you do nothing else after you get your bike fixed, PLEASE do a Track Day. Go to the sponsors section of this forum, we have 4 Track Day Organizations as sponsors here.

One question....Have you taken MSF?
