hate to be the bearer of the obvious information, buuuuuuut maybe, just maybe it might have something to do with "learning to ride".
Not at all trying to be a smart , but DAYUM!!!
seriously MSF? I learned a lot of valuable info in that class.

Yes, but never did selling it cross my mind. Or think that it was a money pit. I already knew that haha.

I think your Avitar is giving you bad motomojo, you look kinda like a special kid, and this is what is giving you bad karma and forcing the bike rubber side up. How long have you been riding?

I went 10 years with out dropping a bike. I have now dropped the Busa twice. Once it went down softly and did way more damage than I could have imagined. It fell over at the track and I tried to save it by the tail light lens.The second time I saved it and the peg touched down. I never thought about selling it though.

the one time I dropped my bike I put my foot, calf and knee under it and held it there until I could reach up and pull it. I felt like my foot was going to explode and my going to break. It took some crazy strength and acrobatics but somehow my mind worked quick enough to catch it millimeters from hitting the ground. Not a single scratch. Whoo hoo. How did I drop it? I used to have a scooter before the bike and since it was an automatic you could have it in gear and turn off the engine and coast into the parking spot. Well first week I got my bike after riding I thought it worked the same way with bikes and the moment I shut off the engine I was in a rude surprise.
