God effin dammit!

Sweet jusus, had the bike in the driveway idling (warming up) slight downhill and it went over. Damn, picked it up and it went over the other way!

Anyway, left turn signal lens appears to be the only casualty. I'm looking at theses: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Front...QQcmdZViewItem
on e-bay.

Also, broke off the last 1.5" of clutch lever.

Anyone got these for sale?

Thanks...

Damn I hate to be rude but use a little common sense when you park her.

Yea, you're right - live and learn. I used to laugh when I read others dropping it in driveways etc.. Not anymore.

Garage
I pulled into a restaurant tonight, Right into the first spot I saw. Thought for a second & went to find another. The slope was not in my favor. Long story short, I'm totally sorry for the misshap. I'm new the bike deal & what happened to you is allways on my mind. Hopefully you get it taken care of !
Good luck.

bikebandit.com for my oem replacements at a better deal than my dealer gets or maybe I just got luck on the type of parts I ordered. Same if you wish to go with the oem turn signal lights instead.

Dropped mine 1 time (my old Kaw) after leaving the house. I was in a hurry and forgot to fasten my chin strap. They had just chip sealed our street and when I took my hands off the bars my foot started sliding and it was all over. Only minor scratches on the engine gaurd and major bruises to my EGO. I lucked out but I probably looked like the 3 stooges falling off a tricycle. (You folks of my generation might rem that one.)

there have definitly been worse inccidents. I watched a woman, after a rally, pull into a parking lot and stop. She forgot to put her feet down and the bike just fell over.

Sorry to hear about that. There's a cardinal rule: Never have the engine running if you are not sitting on the bike. I had to learn the hard way too.

I'm there with you in spirit - been there, done that more than I care to mention.

I bought some extra clutch levers off of eBay over the winter, just for occasions like this. PM me and let me know how to get one to you.
