I guess I will be first.
I am a new rider, bought a 750 (12 miles on the odo), finished the endorsement course- all no problem. I was practicing in the neighborhood to get used to shifting and stopping and starting. I was at a stop sign, no traffic, beautiful weather and somehow I lost control when I tried to go. I don't know what I did wrong but at least I steered it out of the way of the utility pole - barely but I did take out a mail box and a cable TV junction box. Now with 20 miles on the odo.
I scratched up the fairing, I bent my gear shift lever (and now it will only go into neutral if it is powered off), right front turn signal stalk is pulled out a bit, right hand control module twists freely, the exhaust pipe is dented a bit on the side facing the frame with a slight flat spot on the outside (noticeable only if you are looking) and of course my cool points were thrown about. As for injuries, aside from my ego, I have some very minor bruises.
Any advice, comments, or words of wisdom?
