And the story:
Gixxer in my mother-tongue is a synonym for 'mistake' and for some reason I still have a hard time figuring how to refer to my bike besides "my bike" or "gsxr"
A friend of mine calls my bike "the white shadow" - I can live with that for now
Tires were replaced around a month ago (to Metzeler M7RR), together with mounting the crash bumps.
Why the crash bumps? That's what I would refer to as a 'gixxer'. I didn't go down with the bike myself but let my ex try it in a garage. She rode my scooter before, and actually was doing very well on the bike, shifting stopping breaking no problems. After ca. 20mins riding it, she said she will make one last round and that's it for the day. I nodded my approval. She finished the round. When stopping, she put down her legs, but suddenly let go of the clutch and break, the bike got rolling of course, and she panicked. I shouted at her to grab the clutch and break, too late, she grabs the throttle, lands on the right side. Ouch.
Low speed so it's only scratches and a blue spot on her knee. I took it like the bike got more personality and was happy nothing serious happened to either of them, but the sign is there for now.
More of my story with the bike is in the intro thread in the new members section.
