Yep. I was making a right turn, not speeding. I leaned a little too far in, the brake pedal caught the pavement, the ass end lost traction and down we went. Slid about 20 feet, My knee looks like someone held a belt sander to it. My jeans lasted maybe a foot. (no more regular jeans on the bike for me) My jacket has no marks/tears. :/ Right handlebar is FUBAR, brake pedal is grounded down and the right fairing and muffler have some scratches. As soon as I install my new to me brake pedal and get my OEM handlebar or set of woodcraft clip ons.(I haven't decided yet) she will be back on the road. :D

I feel your pain. Wife backed into my Ninja250 a couple of months ago. Went down on its side and popped the indicator through the r/h fairing (stupid stock indicators protruding out) and scratched up the muffler and bent handlebar slightly. Bought an online injection moulded fairing, but the finish just isnt the same as OEM. Good luck with repairs (may be a good excuse to upgrade muffler....).

That's shitty, All that damage from getting backed into and falling. I'm not too worried about the cosmetics right now. I just want to get back on the road. I plan to replace the fairing, muffler & cover later. Found a new OEM handle bar for $70 and a new woodcraft clip on set for $161. Decisions, decisions.

Shitty year for me. Went down again because a car decided to switch into my lane. Honked my horn to get his attention but he kept merging. I moved over into the center lane BUT, a garbage truck happened to be waiting in the center lane to make a turn. Tried to brake + downshift to stop but it wasn't happening. At about 30+ mph, all happened within 3 seconds. I went over, tumbling to a stop. Helmet, gloves and jacket are trashed. Knee armor, boots and kevlar pants held up. Pain in my wrist, but the x rays say no broken bones, possibly tendon issues:( he was cited and Ivy (my 2fiddy) might have bit the bullet this time.
