Yeah, ahh... I had the bike running in neutral on the side stand as I was fiddling with the display and yes, I decided to rest my foot on the shifter peg! Wow! Do I ever feel stupid.

Sean, is that a C10 or a C14?  Any damage to you or the bike?    That's a good one!  Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010,a Tracey  CDA 120  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250

Oh yeah, that one makes me sting.     Hopefully it occurred relatively painlessly in the privacy of your own garage... beside an enormous pile of foam rubber and feathers.     The word 'display' makes me think digital which definitely excludes a stock C10.

It is a C14.  There was *some* damage - the small plastic "dot" on the swingarm was scratched, the lower front fairing got some rash and teh left peg feeler snapped off. I was able to replace all of the boo-booed parts fairly cheaply from Bike Bandit. Now I feel a bit less humiliated, but not much less  :)

Sean, CDA0289  Glad you were able to get her all fixed up and at a decent price.  Check out the FAQ if you would like to print out a CDA sticker for your bike: http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/mboards/viewmessages.cfm?clubID=1328&forum=1411&Topic=11568    Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010,a Tracey  CDA 120  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250

That means the running tally is:     Mr. Gravity - 289  COGgers - 0    Although, Mr. Gravity is really whipping us a lot more than that since you only get one CDA number regardless of times dropped.

I would not put COGers at 0.  I have seen some major gravity defying moves pulled off by riders.  ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br
