NEVER have done this before.

And may I just say, "Ouch!!"

Damn you Earl....damn you and your kharma....

Oh that sucks. Did you drop it at a standstill or were you moving?

Scratches?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

That sucks big time! I did that with my first Busa, which at the time had only 400 miles on it. I nearly cried.

Afterward, I found out that the Hayabusa has a nasty habit of falling over if the kickstand is not mounted on the ground correctly. It is such a problem that there are internet pages all over the place that are dedicated to showing a rider how to mod the kickstand on a Hayabusa.

I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you didn't cause too much damage. I almost dropped my bike the second week I had it. What made the situation worse is that I was riding away from a MSF class I failed to get in as a walk in , I was coming out of the parking lot, not completely comfortable with the clutch, the bike stalled as I started to make a sharp right turn out of the lot, immediately dipped down to the right side. It was pinned againt my calf. Luckily the adrenaline kicked in and I just grabbed the handle bars with all my might and pulled the bike off of my calf and straight up; the bike never touched the ground, but my calf hurt for about two weeks .

Sorry to hear about the bike!! Did you tip over or were you moving?

Bug: basically take a dremel and grind a little away where the stand hits the stop. do a search on hayabusa.org

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

So what you're saying is, you went down...

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Sry to leave y'all hanging...I had an exam today right after the drop.

I dropped it backing out of a spot. Never really straightened the wheel (it was turned left, as I had just got on) and just backed out a bit too quick, with the wheel turned the bike curved just a bit too fast....and voila. I dropped it. Hurt my hand, but no visible damage to me. A few scratches on the bike-- left fairing JUST a sticker scratch (nothing into the body) but left rear fairing has a little rash. And the clutch cover has a scratch but small enough I might be able to buff it.

Anyway, I was more pissed than anything. I've had that bike since the time I joined this board and have NEVER dropped it.

A guy was nearby (ouch! my ego!) and he helped me pick it up; although with the adrenaline I bet I coulda done it. Good thing I didn't though because my back would be killing.

Ok, off to chilifest to party the pain away.

lataz!

Scratched 2001 F4is are sexy. I have one in my garage with custom scratches.
