Thanks for that, i was actually wondering about that. Its kinda of a relief to hears yalls stories. I felt like such a newb, my pride was in pieces, i felt like such a jackass, but nothin got damaged (plastics or frame at least) so i can be thankfull for that. And Falcon im still gonna drink you under the table!!

I'm right there with you. Dropped mine, for the first time, yesterday. IN MY GARAGE!!! I thought the side stand was down, but no. I picked it up as fast as I could for somereason I thought the less time it was down the less damage. Same damage as you except my tail section landed on my shop vac and got dinged. I was upset!! Oh, yeah this was right after I changed the oil and washed and waxed it. The only people who laughed it me were coworkers who don't ride. So now I'm over needing it to be pretty and can concertate on going fast.

Yea the mirrors are pretty cheap on these bikes, dont ask how i know :D At least they break easily and dont rip the whole side of the upper along with it.

Haha yeah the mirrors and reasets are shit on these bikes. I dropped mine 3 days after i bought it cause some old guy cut me off i saved up so only my mirror, rearset, and the lower black plastic was wrecked, but he was nice enuf to buy all that stuff for me so it was cool.

Dropped mine on my third day of owning it. Came to a stop on an incline that also sloped down to the left. I was in second gear. It didn't like pulling out in second on the hill, so I put my weight on my right foot and went to shift. I didn't have enough weight on the right, and it started going left. I tried to catch it, but couldn't. Broke my mirror, scratched the rear fairing a little, scuffed my stator cover and bar end.

Scars give it character, I guess..

Mirror broke off on mine from a deer causing me to lay it over. Im with you I was at gas station talking to some chick. Well my shoe all the sudden slid out from under me and I barely caught it. I looked so retarded I just started it and revved out of there lol.

dropped mine the first weekend of having it. i was pulling into a parking spot with 3 other friend's on bikes at a mall, i was the last to pull in, my friend on his 05 r1 decided to back into my path as i was pulling in, and my front wheel locked up when i hit the oil slick in the middle. i almost saved it but it was to far over to hold, plus it was still in gear so i couldn't let go of the clutch. i set i down and hit the kill switch. scratched up the left mirror a little and the left stator cover. i was glad i didn't hit my buddies r1 or my other buddies brand new busa, so it was not a big deal to me.
