I don't see pics either...

You know what? Get over it. You're a novice, things like this are inevitable. At least you weren't physically incapacitated.

you'll prolly hear it a hundred times, but take the MSF course, and get the sliders put on. i wouldn't worry about fixing the cosmetic damage yet, as you might drop it again. but we all fall down, eventually. i had a 70mph get-off, that sucked. so, no hard feelings, you'll get the hang of it. just take your time and ride safe.

Edit: just to clear things up, i crashed my F2, a few years ago, not the RR.

LMAO.....I did that too.....only I DIDN'T BUY A $10000 BIKE TO LEARN ON!!!?!!?! No sympathy here, you've got to learn to crawl before you learn to walk.

Best of luck.... try not to kill yourself

Yeah, christ...take the MSF course or buy a dirt bike to learn basic controls on...Modern day 600cc bikes are too powerful and light to just hop on and scream "I'm ready to learn!" Get some basic training under your belt...and then work from there...or just go buy a stunt cage for your bike...not to stunt on...but to save your bike from dying every time you drop it...and man up...not like...another man...but become one...quit crying over your dropped bike, it happens to everyone, it's part of riding...get some frame sliders and quit being such a bitch


Sorry, I don't mean to sound like an ass hole

Ditto on what everyone else has said about the MSF course.

And if you've never ridden before what possed you to get an RR? I'm not saying that all street riders should stay away from the RR but a total newbie.......

Get a used bike to learn how to start and stop and then get the bike you really want.......

And get the frame sliders put on........

As for the damage costs......... the parts are expensive...... period.......

One word of advice don't let it get to you. Just pick it up like it didn't even happen and keep riding. If you keep worrring about it you will get no where. You will constantly be thinking about it everytime you go and ride. Its no big deal. Everyone drops thier bike sooner or later.

Wow, flashbacks... My friend did the exact same thing when I let him ride my bike. He was riding it in an empty bowling alley parking lot. Taking a wide turn too wide and went to hit the brake but his hand rolled onto the throttle and he hit the wall.

You'll have to describe the damage in further detail to us. To give you an idea, when my friend wrecked mine it took a 6" chunk out of the front wheel, bent the fork sliders, bent the radiator, rashed about 6 fairings, both mirrors, both crankcase/alternator covers, broke both turn signals, bent the front rotors, and messed up the front tire. It was a $4500 bill.

As far as keeping your confidence, I'm going to be as blunt and harsh as I can. You shouldn't be riding any street bike without taking the MSF course first. I would have been scared shitless the first time I rode my bike if I hadn't taken the MSF course the week before I bought it. After learning the basics in the course my confidence level really went up and it helped me become a much better rider than I could have ever hoped for right from the start.

Get the bike fixed, park it in your garage, and sign up for the next available MSF course. You won't regret it.

here's something you might not hear very often. get a smaller used bike, like an ex500. guess what. 1500$ and it doesn't matter if you drop it because you can turn around and sell for your down payment on the RR you should have waited for. but that's not your fault. it's your friends, if they influenced you at all to buy, and the dealers.
