Re: [ST] ouch

Sorry to hear that Marc...

And, so as not to feel left out....

My ST dropped over on my trailer when the front wheel chock broke. The worst 
part:  I was on the way home from the paint shop just having the bike 
repaired and repainted from a friend dropping it at stop light.  And even 
worse: I was 200 yards from my house.  I drove 150 miles without a problem.

And I had every intention of ordering frame sliders upon arrival so as to 
protect the new paint as they would have prevented the painting in the first

I Brilliantly managed to drop my one week old bike.


I didn't leave it in gear, kicked out the side stand, started getting off 
and it rolled forward. Next thing I knew crash - me lying under the bike 
after not being able to stop it falling, and my mate Johan laughing at my 
stupidity. I cant say I saw the funny side at the time, I was seriously 
p#$$ed off.

My neighbors are giving me skew looks at the language they heard at 7 on a 
Sunday morning.

I got the quote today for the repairs (thank %$d for insurance) : R8 400 (US 
$1200) to replace a fairing panel, flicker, crank case cover, mirror and 
clutch lever.

I could probably have most of it 95% repaired for under R1 000, but I'd 
rather pay the insurance excess and get it sorted properly.

I can honestly say that the RS side stand was a lot more positive and 
stiffer than the Daytona setup.
