Ugh... disappointed and mad at myself!

Ugh the worst thing happened this weekend… I dropped my bike!

I was doing circles and for some reason started going straight out of the circle and almost into the curb (I stopped the bike before that happened). When I stopped the bike my front tire wasn’t straight and the bike started to lean… and then it just dropped so quickly. I’m just so thankful that the drop didn’t cause more damage. My right taillight cover popped off and the chrome around it got a little scratched. My left knee rubbed along the fuel switch as the bike was going down and I now have a bruise. Bryan had to pick the bike back up for me and the taillight cover was able to be popped back on. I’m so disappointed and mad at myself, but I got back on did a couple more circles.

A couple day’s ago I hated my new boots, now that I’ve gotten use to shifting and braking with them… I love them and I’m so glad I didn’t take them back like I was planning.

  2. Sorry to hear about your bike but I think it too is part of the learning process. When I dropped mine I put a hole in the points cover which stunk because it was my beautiful chrome....I never dropped it again

  4. Sorry to hear that you hurt your bike. It's a super good thing you didn't hurt yourself more than you did.
