Well it is official, i had my first low side experience today while driving home from work. It was raining so i was taking a left turn slowly, and then next thing you know, the bike slid out right from under me and my passenger. Thankfully we are both alright just a nice scratch on her knee, and some nice road rash on my left elbow. Sadly the ninja, has seen better days. )This of course all happening before i had a chance to put my frame sliders on.) The left fairing is scraped up pretty well, alot of white, ( its a black 650) The shifter seems to be bent up, still shifts but in very akward opinion. The nice people of springfield ma that were driving behind me immediately stopped and made sure we were alright and even helped lift the bike up. So tomorrow i get to bring the bike to the shop and see how much buffering can be done to get the scratches out, or see if just replacing the left fairing will be easier/cheaper.
