A doozy of a way to start out a build thread, but decided since I did it and eventually want to fix the cosmetic damage I'll include.
This last weekend, I managed to 'softly' drop the bike. I still don't really know exactly what I did, but it seems I tightened up while pulling in to park and not paying enough attention. Topping it off with a handful of brake instead of letting out the clutch a bit more to move forward and get balance back.
Overall, I did far more damage to my pride/ego than the bike (thankfully!).
The helmet cam GoPro footage:
all the damage i could find:
bolts ground down, this was mostly from my standing it back up
right side turn signal, still attached and working fine but beat up pretty good from being crushed:
exhaust and foot peg, really ground up the exhaust good standing it back up
bar end and brake lever are both scratched up
once stood up it started up just fine, and only appears to be cosmetic damage.
except for that pool of fluids that leaked out. i was a bit irked and shaken up, and didn't see if i could identify the fluids that leaked... doh.
the worst irony of it all, later that afternoon the mailman dropped these off for me:
