    I tried to change down a gear for a corner, it wouldn't change then it was too late to brake, I hit the curb, my scoot went round the corner, I flew off and smacked my head on a corner of a wall, I spun then slid and slammed against another wall... The scooter can be fixed I think, need a new indicator and trims etc. but I think i'm going to strip it down, fill it, sand it down and respray it, then rebuild it

    Thats horrid! Glad you weren't harmed.

    I ate it hard twice (IN THE SAME NIGHT!) due to rain on a night that I was DJing (records were fastened onto the front and rear racks). Someone behind me pulled over when I slid out and asked me if I was okay...my response was "My records didn't move off the bike, everything is swell".

    Priorities... Laughing

    I am luck all my incidents have all been at very low speed and thus doing little damage to me or the bike. (though it is looking quite a bit rougher than when i first got it Razz)

    I nearly came of going to wakey wakey
