Yesterday after leaving work I was in a great mood and was ready for my ride home. Leaving out the front gate I got a little too excited and wacked the throttle open while I was going about 30-35 and the bike jumped up faster than I had ever experienced. In less than a second the bike was scraping its tail on the road and ended up falling to its right side. I landed right on my ass in the sitting position and knew immediatley my tailbone was broke. I slid to a stop in the sitting position the whole way. When I got up I noticed that my exhaust pipe was completly ripped off and oil was everywhere. I had never done something so stupid on any of my bikes before. I felt like a complete dumbass as other coworkers stopped to help me move my bike. A cute chick I work with gave me a ride to the hospital. She was in the room with me when the nurses came to look at me and, as if wrecking my bike around everyone I work with wasn't embarassing enough, they strated spreading my cheeks open to see if I had any tears in my anus right in front of her. Today I feel fine. I have a little pain sitting but not too bad. My bike was in mint comdition before this but now has some scrapes on the fairings, no midpipe or can, and a shattered engine cover. I'm just happy it wasn't worse. I wasn't hurt very bad and my bike should be an easy and not so expensive fix. I'll see when I start taking it apart. On the brite side I needed an oil change anyway. Damn I feel dumb. I hope someone can learn from my mistake. Never get complacent on your bike.
