Glad to hear you are alright. Health the most important, I hope this will not deter you from riding in the future after you recover.

Bright side, ninja 300

i had a ton of people stop for me and see if i was alright, the driver didnt run, the ambulance came pretty quickly and the police came later to give him a ticket. i'm very grateful for those people who stopped & be my witnesses

ya that understandable now.


was hoping to get them soon cause i need new tires and will be doing the brake lines and brake pads at the same time.

It'll be worth the wait. Braided lines are one of the best upgrades you can do your bike, the most significantly noticeable and yet cost effective (short of changing the brake master cylinder). Couple that with new pads immediately you'll notice improved initial bite.

Good thing with the braided lines is that it will also get rid of that spongeyness in your lever that's plagued a lot of Japanese bikes. It ultimately eliminates brake fade, but you'd have to ride it pretty darn hard.

Your set up will be definitely much more confidence inspiring though.

Something to look into down the road. Especially with rubber oem lines that have expanded with age. Also the reason why your brake fluid gets dirty is because the fluid is slowly eating away at your lines, its corrossive.

Steel braided lines on the other hand are teflon coated, reason being teflon is not very reactive to chemical agents.

bought clip ons and an hid kit for my bike from bayside-- had to return them because of my accident. i hadnt picked it up yet but when they gave me the call and i told them about my situation and they gave me a full refund

two big thumbs up .

bought a nosepiece fairing for my bike awhile back and got it shipped from ebay to the border. just picked it up today, probably will wait to see what icbc's verdict is before i return/sell/or worst case-- use it (i have basic coverage lol..)

+1



You never know when someone totally non suspecting pulls into the spot quick, you're just asking for your bike to be damaged.

Call me paranoid but I'd much rather be proactive lol. I already don't trust drivers on the road, that definitely doesn't change in the parking lot. I always try to park closer to the edge of the stall unless double parking with 2 bikes.
