Default Busted Ego

Been riding for about a month. Took the rider education course, been commuting to work, riding around town, generally having a blast and feeling like a badass.

Then last night I bottomed out and dropped it on a steep uphill turn. Gotta get a new clutch lever, new left foot peg and probably a new shifter.

Feel like a f**kass.

You can turn it into a positive experience. Look back, try and figure out what you did wrong, and try not to do it again. Good luck.

Yep...done that too....
Have to be careful on the steep hill with corners...you can bottom out really quickly.

Check out the Motorcycle Parts for Sale section. Someone is parting out a CBR. Careful as it is their first post so I would only pay via PayPal... but then I again I am not a very trusting person...

Bottom Out? How does a motorcycle manage that? Thought it was only possible with more than 2 wheels.

By the way. If you only bent your shift, you can just bend it back with a wrentch and arm strength.

Its not really a "bottom out" I believe he was just going up a steep hill with a turn and caught the bottom left or right side either near or under the foot peg or something along those lines? Either way glad to see your okay, and I agree you can turn it into a learning experience, we all make mistakes It happens! just thankful it wasn't something much worse ya know? Good to know your alright
