Going from cruiser to sport bike HURTS!

My friend had the brilliant idea to switch bikes. he rides a suzuki bandit and i have a V-star 1100 classic. before we took off we agreed that if anything was to happen no one would get mad.
Mind you i have never ridden a sport bike before so i tried to make a right a little bit too fast and fell. first bike accident and all i can say is that it hurts.

I had to take my Daughter in laws Ninja to her house for her about a 1/2 mile away and it is not for me at all. Sport bikes will never be owned by me!

road rash mostly on the right side of my body, dislocated left shoulder, 2 hair line fractures on the right leg, torn tendon and a splintered fibula.

road rash is easily stopped, leather is quite handy at that .. recover well and dont let it put you off, but technically speaking a bandit isnt a sports bike its a tourer!

my buddy was laughing his ass off. we agreed on a no fault type of deal but i felt bad seeing the bike trashed we agreed that we each were gonna pay half of the $1500 that is gonna cost to fix the bike. I believe in Karma and i like to think that if he would've crashed my bike he would've done the same.
