First Crash !

Come off my 650 bandit on Friday Morning (12.30am) Going around a bend to fast , 70-80 and seen gravel so insted of low siding it i breaked hard hit the curb at a angle and let the bike slide down the curb.

I went off down the curb doing star jumps and the usual intoa  bush.

Havent been on here for a while must admit but with all this spair time on my hands i suppose i have wimperd back with my tail between my legs,

Tanks smashed
Radiator Bent (Leaking)
Handles bars bent into tank
Faring smashed (The small ammounts as its a naked bike)
Clocks Smashed
Headlight scratched
Magneto cover took most of the scratches (RUIND)
Clutch lever snaped at weak spot

I rode the bike 25 miles back home with a leaking radiator and a bruised ego haha !


Fractured sholder & coller bone
Broken little toe
Brused ribbs and lungs,
Broken pride,/wallet

Apart from that 3 days later i was back in work cutting hair to pay for the repair,

( iv replaced the handles bars and bar ends, the front little lip of faring with a bigger screen. )

I plan to get the whole bike sprayed matte black and laqerd new tank and magneto cover, and see if i can get the radiator fixxed!

Was wondering if anyone had any parts they could sel me or even source me some parts, cant find a radiator anywere and the cheapest tank is £165

There are only two types of bikers, ones that have been down and ones that are going down.
