Checking in from Long Beach CA
Whats up everybody. Picked up a Versys on Friday, 2011. First bike. Had a tough time with it on Sat. was trying to work on low speed controlled turns, but it was controlling me. Sunday I felt great on the bike. Could do anything I wanted to do. Today, went to go practice hill riding, and bamn, crash.
Still not sure what I did wrong. I wanted to do a u turn, was travelling up a hill. From a stop, eased on a bit of throttle, not too much, started turning, and halfway around lost both tires. Broke the clutch foot pad stay and scratched up the cowling pretty good too. Had to limp home in first gear.
It was pretty early morning, and the tires probably wernt to warm, and the bike only has 50 miles on it, so maybe its a tire issue? Or maybe I grabbed a bit of front brake? I dont remember doing that though. Bummer.
All I know though is as soon as I get it running again, im gonna go back to that same darn spot and get it right.
