The virtues of a naked bike
So that's what grass tastes like... Yes I actually thought I could go my whole first season without binning it. I'm now changing my prediction.
In a heated Mission backroads run with some new buds we come across a corner. 100deg. radius. Blind. No reduced speed sign. Stupid tight (make your own Pamela Anderson t-shirt joke). Once the spidey-sense went off I stood the bike up, scrubbed off as much as I could then started a new lean. Too late. Through the gravel and lowside into the tall grass.
Damage: - Slightly repositioned clutch lever, which I can live with.
- One slightly bent clip-on = $30 stock.
- Headlight + front wheel need adjustment.
- Minor scrapes on the front fender.
- Grass stains on the jacket: now washed off.
- One bruised hip.
Total bill: $30 + gst.
What I did not get: fairing damage, broken windscreen, turn signals or mirrors.
Big thanks to Marcus for getting the steering in relative alignment (PM me pls) and watching my 6. Props to the rest of the gang for waiting up and especially Scott for cheering me up.
Moral of the story: NAKED = GOOD FIRST BIKE

That's not what happened...
The Real Story:
Terry, Jason, myself, Jay and Marcus go flying around a corner and some chick throws her panties at us and lifts up her top... Mark comes around last, gets target fixated, tries to brake but slips on the panties and heads right into a bush (no pun intended)...
At least that was my recollection of today's events. Congratulations on popping your cherry Mark! lol

You SOB I thought everyone swore that stays between us.
This is the second time in my life a girl's popped my cherry but if it just gets more painful like this then I'm not havin' it!
