Well I never thought it would happen to me, even though everyone says that most riders will go down at some stage or another I didn't think I'd be one of them, well not on road anyway.
I was wrong though, I went for a bit of a slide last night, basically just gassed it (way) too much coming through a corner and the back stepped out big time and I went down. I think it was just a habbit from riding dirt bikes so much in the past to open her up coming out of the corner... as the back wheel stepping out on a dirt bike isn't really a problem lol. After looking at the bike now I've seen that the swingarm spool is actually bent forwards so the bike must have been spun right around before it even hit the ground.
But o well, lesson learned, I'm not invincible and I'm sure I won't be making this mistake again :)
As for the damage, I'm fine, I was wearing gear, I've just got a sore lumpy hand/wrist, slight rash/bruising on the upper thigh and a sore ankle. The bike is what I'm more worried about though as I'll heal up for free lol.
The main damage to the bike is the RHS fairings and the RHS engine cover, every thing else is just little things that I can replace anytime, mirror plastic scratched, indicator scratched, bar end ect.
As its a hanspree edition the fairings are hard to come by, but I have found a place thats selling the bits I need, if anyone knows of anywhere else cheaper than please let me know, otherwise it looks like this is the place.
I'm also trying to figure out the part number for the piece of black plastic that is in between the two fairings that I'm replacing, as that is also scratched and will need replacing, so if anyone knows the number, or how I could find it out that would be a great help! :)
Here is the damage...
