Good thing I got it this weekend
today I kinda wrecked my bike . not to much damage,
so I rode it back home.
I missed a expected turn. It was a sharp turn and I was going a little faster than I should have been going.( posted 30mph me 40mph I just could not get it to make the turn so I chickened out at the last sec about 1 foot from the grass so I straitened the wheel and tried to slow down some but it got too squirrelly in the grass and there was a ditch coming up fast so rather than jumping a 5 foot ditch I chose to lay it down, not to hard and in the grass but I am still a little sore.
I dug quit the ditch with the bike and it took a while to clean all the mud from around the bike I have had much worse crashes snow boarding.
So all in all not to bad for my first crash.
any crash you can ride away from is a good one.:)
I knew better than to take the turn so fast but was not paying attention how fast it came up.
It was a ramp getting on the express way.

I found walking the bike up some what harder in slippery mud. But I got it up just the same I was more embarrassed and pissed than hurt .
Guess that is a good thing.

My mirror was slightly bent, the light assembly was slightly crooked, and the gages were slightly crooked.
I guess I can say my bike was slightly crooked.
I got most of it back strait before this message.
Still need slight adjustment but It needed that before the wreck.
Maybe now I will wake up :D

Ya me to I did get every thing fairly strait .
I found a problem with my tachometer not working correctly it must have happened in the crash ,it only reads 1000-2500 rpm no matter how high I rev The bike guess I will have to spring for one of those now.
Maybe tomorrow I can fix it never know.
Oh well could have been much worse, I can hardly lift my arms I am so sore.
I did make my self go around the neighborhood a few times to get past the fear and to see how it rode after I got every thing strait I also had to replace one of the blinker bulbs it must have broke in the crash the orange cover is also cracked pretty bad but that is most likely fairly cheap.
I will need to change out the front light holder the chrome sleave some time soon it is bent fairly bad and the blinkers are some what cockeyed they all mount to the chrome sleeve.
Oh well the hard part will be finding parts I can afford.

The jacket was nice but I landed mostly on my chest and helmet,see they are nice to have on in a wreck.
Glad I had it on like all ways, ( referring to the thread how not to where a helmet and get by with it.

Ya I guess so, But boy am I sore today even worse than yesterday.
well I took the bike out riding any way today ,seemed OK but the tachometer is fried guess I will have to keep an eye out for one this winter.
The tachometer works up to around 2500 rpm but it reads low at idle should read around 1050rpm reads around 500rpm at 55 mph reads 2500rpm not quite right.
I still have to get a front blinker cover.
I changed the bulb on the blinker because it was not working and now it works fine.
Just what I needed more stuff to fix on the bike.
