was pullin outta my parking lot... had cowhide leather gloves on and got a bad start... too fast... so i went to reach the front brake and the leather gribbed the throttle and turned it with my hand movement... next thing u know im fallin at 35 mph heading for a fence a curb and a car... lol every1 falls sometimes but i learned:

wear your helmet i hit my head against the curb from a 2 min ride... saved my life... you never know when its going to happen...

gloves saved my hands and jacket saved my back.... be carefull this season guys

btw minimal damage... top corner of headlight housing/glass cracked very little. and scratched on the fairings connecting to the headlights and a very little bit on the side my the decal. hopefully wont be more then 500$ to fix... wear your gear guys... worth every penny.

I'm glad that most of the stories this season so far, are guys that came away unscathed due to wearing proper gear.

glad to hear you were geared up. Were the gloves too big for you?
