It's easy to say that now.
But when I came off, my bike is all I cared about!!!

My body can heal itself.
The bike takes SOOO much more effort, and is heartbraking!!

So long as you haven't injured yourself permanently at least :p

Coincidentally, I came off last night also =/
Must be that time of year again. -sigh-

Very well put Cameron when i came off i was only worried about my bike... break yourself and the hospital and your body with fix itself and not cost any money. As long as i don't get so hurt i can't ride then i might be a bit pissed off.

After I crashed for a week till I got pirellis I was so worried to drop it again as was wet most of the week. As soon as I picked up the bike from a 3000 mile service and fresh Pirelli's man it was like a dream come true :)

Well I was just setting off again after stopping for a lil rest and I just couldn't for the life off me take my hand off the throttle, I managed to eventually but at that point I was next to the curb and ten hit it. Bike slid on its side. Most of the damage is to the boomerang panel. If I reconnect a new front indicator will the rear one stop flashing like mad?

because one is not connected thats why it flash like mad so you need to connect the new front one and it will stop flashing

like other have said on here , although we have such an attachment to our bikes, they are still only a material thing once damaged, the main thing in life is your LIFE, so get better soon and everything else can be sorted later . once all is sorted we look forward to you back on 2 wheels once more .

Haha, damn right!
I've crashed 2 different bikes, and both times I told the people not to run to me, run and get the bike safe first, damn.
I'll heal, those panels won't.
