I hate to dig up an old thread, but I figured I would instead of starting a new one.
So, I finally got my bike on Saturday, after months of waiting and jumping through hoops for the Quebec bureacracy. 2 hours in I loose control when pulling away from a gas pump and slam into a nearby curb. I reved the throttle a little too much and popped the clutch too quickly.
Long story short, my bike is in the shop with a busted gearshift lever. Waiting to hear from the shop as to how much/how long it will be.
Best 2 hours of my driving life though! Can't wait to hop back on her when I get her back.
I ended up with a busted lip (bit it when I hit the ground) and a sore knee for my troubles. All of my gear held up perfectly.
