New Rider with a CBR500R
Hey everyone, I'm new to riding. I picked up my 2014 CBR500R in January, stuck it in the garage and started riding in March. I live in Connecticut. I got a bit overzealous and was riding as much as I could. In April I low sided in a corner on my way to work. Low speed, but it shook me up. No breaks but my knee got pretty torn up. The road rash is healed, and my bike is ok. I had to do some minor repairs, but the bike is fully operational now and ready to go. Last weekend I did my first ride since the accident. Small ride and did a few hours of drilling in a parking lot. Hoping for good weather this weekend so I can get more seat time. I love the bike, and I love riding, but I'm taking it slow.
