This... This has been a long time coming (74 days). I took the Ninja out for about a 20-minute ride earlier before my self-preservation instincts got the better of me. I’m taking it into a shop to double check my work, do some general maintenance that I just don’t want to deal with, and let me know it’s safe enough to ride distance.
I did find a local school and took the bus lanes pretty quick, scraped the pegs on both sides trying to find if there are any weird quirks about getting it running again, couldn’t find any but I might just have to lean it over more. It’s a bit like finding Jesus at the bottom of a bottle, you’re never sure which bottle it is until you find him.
