Only 6 days after getting my M750 I layed it down! Going around 45 mph on the 134 in North Hollywood someone jammed the brakes in front of me. Not knowing my new ride that well, I guess I squeezed the front brakes a bit too hard and down I went..I can not stress enough the importance of a good jacket, gloves and a helmet. I walked away with only minor bruises and very little road rash. The bike didn't do to bad either, very little cosmetic scratches, and a small dent in the tank...Just want to thank all the idiots on the 134 for not stopping to see if I was ok....THANKS!

isnt that some sh!t? I went down hard once, and no one stopped, and another time some jerk off cut me off and i did a stoppie ( those Brembos work TOO good sometimes).
glad to hear you are ok. I am so used to getting cutoff and all that now, I pretty much expect it to happen anytime I go out.

Ouch! :-/ I'm so sorry to hear that. My husband grew up in N.Hollywood so I'm familiar with the local driving from visits back to his old neighbourhood. Glad to hear you're okay and the bike only has minor scrapes... not fun to have happen to your new baby though... my sympathies. Take care and ride safe! :)

glad to hear all are ok (bike and you) for the most part. I imagine seeing the bike dented and scratched up hurts more than your bumps and bruises.

Man! Like was said above-there is too much of this going on.
Hope you are back riding soon. Stay safe, good luck.

Thanks for the good wishes guys....I got back on the bike today and rode to work...It will take more then a dented tank and some cuts and bruises to keep me off my 6 day old scooter!

Sorry to hear about the fall. Glad your o.k. and up and running.

Hearing how no one had the decency to stop rings a familiar bell.

Keep on moving.
