My first was a brand new Ninja 500. I dropped it in the gravel before I even left the lot that day. Devastated? no, but my pride hurt a bit. I was just happy to have my very own motorcycle to really give a shit. I ended up low-siding it later that summer and sold it after I got a ZX10. I forgot to put down the kick-stand on the ZX10 and had a light let-down when I was rearranging my vehicles in the parking lot.
Moral of the story: New, used, it'll get dropped either way. Get some sliders on it right away, get her out there, and have fun!
EDIT: Just saw how old the OP was. Meh, my position stands!
