Well I was off work today and bored so I figured I'd do some putzing around town and I did. Downtown is a valley so we have two little hilly mountain things on each side, and its nice riding. One has hairpin turns I've done a hundred times. The other side has nice scenic stops. I've done both many times. Just not with the Versys yet.
So I ride up one and get the hair brained idea, for the first time ever, to stop at one of the hairpin turns and park and get a nice picture. Sounds reasonable right. Well I stop nicely of course, but I'm not quite used to the tip toe height yet, coupled with the hairturn leaning in towards itself (my right); as I stopped, the bike immediately -slowly- goes to the right, and by the time I finally flat foot it, I'm leaning a bit, coupled with the hairpin's right lean, I'm quite far right leaning. Now mix this with my right arm/shoulder is still very weak from my accident- I just couldn't save it, I had it all but stopped, but couldn't bring it back up. So it goes down, gently on its right side.
I cuss, kickstand down, somehow it was outa gear so put it back in first, lift it back up. No real damage but the damned turn signal pushed into the plastic cowl piece where its housed. So $203 later, it'll come in a few days to a week. Just my pride now.
So now I have way more resolve to look into this suspension set up. I've read a few articles on how to do it properly, with the three heights. Maybe it'll sink a bit so I can flat foot it. I've read so many different things. Right now its at whatever stock setting may be, and sinks none-at-all when I sit on it.
After I set it back on two wheels, of course. Oh and BTW, if anyone ever wandered. The 2015 Versys 650 ABS black and white. The right side cowl piece that the turn signal is mounted to, is 55028N 55028-0516-660 COWLING,SIDE,RH,M.S.BLACK. Or magnetic sparkles black. Since the other one, is called Ebony. At least according to Kawasaki.
