Almost died today. Lol
Hey guys. New to the 250 crowd. I rode other bikes and stopped riding a few years back. Recently had a baby and have talked my wife into getting another one. Promised her something with a smaller engine haha. So ended up with a ninja 250 a couple weeks ago. Long story short today I got cut off by a semi after pulling out from a green light. Sounds really bad but I suppose wasn't that bad. I was only going about 10 mph and laid the bike down. Slide across three lanes of traffic and only ended up with minor minor road rash on my forearm. Crazy huh? So anyway both handle bars are bent. That seems to be the only thing wrong with the bike other then some cracked fairings and a couple blinkers. I'm a mechanic but I honestly don't know a lot about bikes or what to check for. Nothing seems Bent other then the handlebars. Can I bend them back with some heat and bar? Any tips on what to look for or anything else would be appreciated. Thanks!
