    get the bike...few weeks having it I gently lay it down...scratched up the one side a little...no biggy (That was last year)

    This year my father takes it out and drops it, scratches up the same side but a hell of a lot more, screws up the peg, mirror, exhaust, brake lever, fairings, etc

    A couple of weeks later some guy cuts me off, scratches EVERYTHING

    Spent a week recovering and getting an estimate

    Rode a week

    5 weeks to repair it..they did a good job but not good enough....they offer to redo it come winter time...fine by me...it is still nice

    Have it 2 days...coils go in it

    2 weeks for the dealer to get the parts so they can do it

    Just got it back Friday and tonight spent 140 miles on it (45 miles to a party at a college, 50 miles riding around up there, 45 miles home)

    While up there I sat on the bike most of the time but went in to watch some beer pong

    Within the 10 minutes I was gone a friend of mine accidently knocks it over (he was drunk)...trash can I put next to it caught it but it still got scratched up.....AHHHHHHHH

    I'm not too mad cause it was an accident and it is going to get redone anyone but STILL

    Ride home was nice at 2AM though - no traffic what so ever - hit 147mph
