long time lurker first time registered, i sold my old buell blast for a ctx 700n that i busted up panic braking at the bottom of my condo farm driveway due to a speeder coming from the other direction not paying attention.

luckily it was a few scratches, a footpeg, blinker and windshield that took the brunt of it besides my knee. i hairline cracked my tibia and fibula at the top under the femur. it's been over a month and i am about ready to get back on my bike!

i have since repaired things and added mid-pegs since i am a shorter rider (5,5 - 28 inseam). still looking for a color match pen for the few small scrapes.

Welcome... welcome.
I am new here as well as I just bought my 700 about a week ago. Still a bit touchy with the forward controls but I am determined to get used to them as I love the look of the bike and the amazing fuel mileage. Rode it for the first time in the rain today and was extremely, overly cautious as I hate laying down bikes. The good thing is that your okay, the bike can be fixed.

Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry you had a minor accident, but happy to hear you're on the mend.

From the photos of your CTX, it looks like your brake pedal is a little bent. It should be pretty easy to slip an adjustable wrench over a flat part of the brake pedal and then bend the metal back into shape.

Ride safe! -Sloppy

Thanks! funny story - the pedal is easier for me with it bent like that LOL. i had considered bending it back but in the grand scheme of things it isn't super important right now.

Hey!

To be honest they both block a fair amount of air on my chest. I think the puig looks better but the MFA looks larger. I will compare and get back to you.
