So within 10 minutes of me turning away some god botherers at my door this morning, I had accidentally scraped the side of my F4 with the lawn mower, and then dropped it outside on the driveway whilst cleaning it..

Is somebody trying to send me a message?!

Thankfully the damage is not bad. The scrape from the mower is through the lacquer and into the paint, but I'm hoping I can get it touched up without a full panel respray.

The damage from the drop is almost none, only a little scrape on the bar end and a tiny scuff on the rear indicator. Thankfully as the stand gave way and it went down I was well placed to hold it, and despite loosing my footing and buckling my ankle, I never allowed the bike to land taking it's own weight. Amazing to think that the bar end sticks out further than anything else even the mirror.

So I've decided that despite the glorious weather today, I'm not going to risk a ride. Luck's not on my side today! :lightning

That sucks, i'm sorry to hear about it.

But hey, like you said, the damage is tiny and you can always repaint the fairing and send the bill to you neighbour.

As for not going for that ride, it was your call and maybe you've done the right thing. Who knows ? :)

wow, sorry to hear about that man, i know how much it hurts to put a sigle scratch on an mv, let alone dropping it, i think you should call those god brothers back so they can pray on your bike and u to be on the safe side.

Simon,

It is so true with m-cycling. If you feel the karma is bad, or you are a bit tired or distracted, it is best not to cycle on that given day. Each trip is a mission and requires focus.

Scratches mend.

If you find touch up paint, will you post where you got it? My MV dealer says the blue on the belly pan is not available from MV and it is not available from the alternate supplier.

I smell :bullshit.

In the end I decided I needed to get out for a ride, poke my finger in the eye of karma. No harm came. Took it easy though.

I've woke up this morning with a huge bruise on my shoulder and one on the top of my foot. I think something popped in the muscles when I picked the bike up.

Oh man that sucks. Its one of those learning experiences.

The first time I went out with my MV I nearly drop it pushing the MV backwards up a slight incline on gravel. I have been sitting cross legged for about 1 hour and my legs had pins and needles and I forgot how heavy the MV when pushing her around. My legs has turned to jelly.

It seems we all experience bad luck. Glad nothing major happened to your MV !!!

CAD, I don't know how good the touch up paint is ........ but, Fast By Ferraci has touch up listed on their web. Relatively inexspensive and says it's a perfect match for our bikes. When you get to the site, go to bodywork and then accessories. Scroll down and you'll see it. Good luck.
