Dropped my baby
I knew I would do it at some point in time, it just finally happened this morning. I rolled the bike out of the garage and I guess I didn't stop it rolling forward completely before the kickstand touched the ground because I turned around to go back into the garage and BAM! There's my baby on her left side in the driveway. I yanked it back up pretty easily (mostly out of panic) and gave it a once over and everything looked okay. Until I saw a little chrome piece laying in the driveway. It broke the end off my clutch lever. Daggum it! But everything else seems okay. Scuffed up the handlebar grip a little, but it looks like the handlebar and saddlebag kept anything else from touching the ground. Freaked me right out.
I already ordered a replacement lever from ronayers. It's still operable, but it doesn't let my ring or pinkie finger touch the lever.
Oh well, had to happen sometime, right?
2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 "Serenity"
Changed Oil/Filter and Coolant
Installed Big Crank ETX15L Battery w/charger hookups
Duct-taped retention safety for toolbox door
New OEM clutch lever replaced after first tipover
Plan on: changing brake fluid, coastering, lubing splines, relocating R/R, new saddlebags, highway pegs, windshield.
Scratch that...make that getting her ready for sale. Nope, scratch THAT! I'm keeping her!
