    F**KING STACKED IT!!! Damage isn't too bad, I'm fine, but I's f**king pissed off about it, because the only reason I dropped it was a complete bloody n00b mistake.

    Completely my fault. Starting to turn off a road, thought it was clear and it wasn't. Going slow enough to stop but I made the classic n00b mistake of grabbing a handful of front brake whilst turning and lowsided it. Car coming the other came to the stop alright.

    Damage report
    I'm fine. It was a pretty slow speed stack. Slight graze on my knee, didn't even tear my work pants. Very slight graze on the shoulder of my Joe Rocket Nova jacket, light grazing and a small hole in the palm. Very small graze on the vent on my helmet, nothing on the helmet itself.

    Bike: Sweet FA fairing damage. Couple more scratches where there were already scracthes when I bought it. A few on the mirror, smashed the lens and bulb on one indicator. Scuffs on brake lever and bar end. Rear brake is completely f**ked now (I figured out why I was having problems using the rear brake, the pedal and already been a bit mangled.) Looks like the front fender's been knocked loose a bit, but I'm not sure, which leads me to...

    There's something wrong somewhere in the front end. When the front wheel is straight, the bars are turned to right a bit. Don't know if it's twisted forks, bent bar or what.

    Bikes at CMC now getting looked at.

    I'm just really annoyed at myself. I had more than enough time to stop (I should've taken just a second longer to be doubly sure there wasn't anything coming) if I had've just hit the rear brake and straightened up. But I didn't. Oh well.

    That sucks! At least you're ok. Bike accidents happen all the time. Back in the 80's my Dad made a turn, hit an icy patch and slid about 100yards along the road.

    Should be getting it back tomorrow, assuming CMC finally fixes the bloody brake lever. I told them to do it when I dropped it off, but they didn't write it down, so when I went in on Saturday to check, they'd straightened the forks but not replaced the lever. Called them this morning, still hadn't replaced it, just pulled it back to where it should be but it was a bit mangled. So they should get the part from Kawasaki Sydney tomorrow morning so should be ready lunchtime. Thank christ. I miss my bike

    93 model Kawasaki GPX250, cost me $2500, and I love it! Rode it around a bit this morning, good fun, getting the confidence up and remembering how to ride
    Wow. It's shiny alright and I bet you rode it hard, but was that really worth $2500?

    No, they probably just broke the ignition lock and just wheeled it away.
