It's not that bad but still pisses me off. The worse part is that i know better. Just a reminder folks - make sure you put something under your kickstand or you'll find your bike on it's side just like me. My usual parking spot at work was taken so i had to park in a new spot. didn't notice the new patch of pavement. My kickstand sank in the hot crap and ends up on her side. Cracked the uper fairing, scratched rear tail, bent shift lever. luckily i had frame sliders.
so here are my options for a winter project:
1. restore the bike to original with new paint etc (it's a 98 red and white R1, number 7 off the assembly line so it's pretty rare)
2. build it into a streetfighter. lose the fairing
3.give it a custom paint job.
4. trade it in on a new R1.
what do you guys think? any suggestions? oh yah, i'm pissed off enough so hold off on the sarcastic responses please.
