Congratulations!

Pretty big power, though.

Get some education, like from the book, Total Control by Lee Parks. Get it from his website (Lee Parks Design, World's Finest Deerskin Motorcycle Gloves and Accessories) or Amazon. Very good, easy read. Designed for street riders.

Just remember: It's not how quick or how fast you are, it's whether you can make the turn or stop in time.

Good luck, and post some pictures!

And BrowningBar would like some freeze-dried blubber, if you get a chance...

D'OH! That left a mark................

It was a no-speed drop, wasn't it?

If you kept the piece, it can be fixed. If nothing else, it can sit on your clothes-dresser as a reminder not to F-up again.

You need a back tire on that thing, already.

In your second pic, it looks near-bald in the middle - that's why I commented.
