Saw my friend crash today

A friend of mine wrecked the other day and broke four ribs and smashed his shoulder. The doctor said it was the worst he has ever see. We were going around a corner, a 25mph corner at 40 cause there was a lot of gravel and we were being careful, but I saw the whole thing in my mirror, it really freaked me out. It just came right out from under him into a ditch, and then the bike landed on him. It really sucks when you see a good friend hurt. Anyway I am trying to help him out, and I need to find fairings/bodywork for a 98 gsxr750. Any info would be greatly appreciated

I have a practically perfect set of red/blk/silver '98 GSXR-750 plastics. I saw your post, and then I checked in the shop to see if they were still there. I couldn't find the tank, though, (I may have already sold that, I'm getting old (25), and getting dementia). If you are interested in the plastics, e-mail me at [email protected], and let me know. I might also be interested in your friend's wrecked plastics, (if you have ALL the little pieces so I can play jig-saw puzzle), maybe a trade and some money.

I'll bet if he tried really hard on that corner he could crash at an even higher speed. 40 in 25mph corner with loose gravel? Sorry that he hurt himself, but I wouldn't really call that being careful. Did he go to the Jack Kavorkian school of riding, or what?
