Oh man, sorry to hear about you going down. Right now just work on getting yourself right and healed up. You can always get the bike fixed once you're back to 100%.

Take care

Sorry about going down, glad that you are safe! Happens to the best of us! First off, heal up, then worry about the bike. Unforunately, I have dropped every bike I have touched, but I have never layed over my bike going any speed above perhaps 5mph.... but from my experience... this is what I did, when I dropped my bike.

Once you have healed up, make sure it is just cosmetics damage. To do that, make sure the bike is in an up right position. Check to make sure of any engine leaks or any leaks at all whatsoever. If there are, then try and figure out where the leak is located and you decide whether you can fix it yourself. If you are mechanically inclined, then some minor fixes won't be a problem. If you can not fix it, then you should take it to a motorcycle shop. Also check your bike to make sure of any large noticeable dents or dings on your bike other than the fairings. If there are, then locate them and see if the dents or dings are essential to the bike.

If there aren't any of those... I would usually try to start the bike, BUT I am NOT sure if that is the right thing to do. Since I do not have much experience with a wrecked bike, you might want to check other posts to see what to do next.

However, I have the an '03 cbr600rr manual downloaded (not sure what year your bike is), so if you need it, then let me know. I can e-mail it to you. Just send me a PM.

Good luck!

Don't even worry about the bike. Listen to everyone here. Get better first.
You can either fork out the money to get it fixed or you can give your "Just in case" a call to put in a claim.
For real though, heal up fast before the season starts.

You didn't drop it, you crashed it. What happened?

Dropped, crashed or whatever the term, I'm glad we're not burying you. Now, I have a friend that used EBay to totally refurbish the Gsxr1000 when he jacked it up doing wheelies in DC. The bike is now perfect so just get with the guys on the board here and see can happen. The talent on this board is unbelievable. Now get healed and don't ride until the weather gets better.

Just take it easy dude. The bike comes second. You come first. Post up pics whenever you feel able to. God invented EBAY for this reason. You can just let your insurance handle it (as long as you have the right coverage!)

Thanks guys-
I am getting better everyday, hopefully i can get some pics up here today, so if you cna check back in the evening that would be great.

I do not have collision insurance for this bike, because i was just hopping that when i did drop it, the damage would be less than my premium.

As far as I know, the problems are all cosmetic, my friend was able to ride it home after the crash without foot pegs and a shift lever some how. I am not sure if the frame is bent or how to even tell though.
