So I got my brand spanking new Sirrus Sport a few days ago and I've been riding everywhere, every day..trying to gain some endurance.
I rode downtown to have dinner with some friends and was headed home to clean up so we could hang out here. I was about to take a left to turn onto my street and for some ungodly reason I grabbed the front brake and flew over my handlebars just slowly enough so I could say, "****."
I stopped myself with my hands and rolled. Minor rash on my knee and elbow. The CF barends I installed two hours before going downtown are scuffed and that's pretty much it...oh yeah, and a sore shoulder.
When I picked up the bike I asked them to switch the brakes around because I was used to having the right side be the front brake from my experience motorcycling. I was a very cautious and safe motorcyclist and knew how to modulate brakes. I guess I got distracted and paid for it.
First bike crash since being 12.
