Going down

I have crashed three in 9 years. The first, I was cut off by a car and low sided it to avoid a guard rail (to diffacult to explan here) the next was my fault, standing on the rear pegs rideing weelies and over gassed it. That one trashed a Gixxer1k with only 2100 miles on it. Decided to go back to 6s that Ive always loved and wouldn't you know it the second year with the R6 the replaced the Gixxer I was rideing a secondary road about 30mph and comeing out of a very tight turn drove into some gravel, droped the bike. Bent the forks, trashed the front cowling-headlights, scared up the right side fairing. Put it back together myself, sold it and have managed to keep the R6 up so far. Seemed like a five year period there I just wasn't meant to ride, though the Gixxer was purly my Squidpitity.

Joe4speed Luckily, I never went down once in the 5 years I owned the Ninja. I've had many close calls, though!

I must admit, I didn't usually wear my gear under the rain suit but that morning I didnít have a choice. Now I ALWAYS do after seeing what happened to that one!

I didn't get the guys plate that morning but I went back that evening and waited to see if I could spot the truck. It's a rural road with few houses on it so I figured Iíd get lucky.... I did and found out why I lost the rear end... cause I hit the rear quarter of the truck and left a nice round tire mark that would rival those in NASCAR. I got the plate then and called FiveO but they didnít feel there was enough proof that he caused the accident but, they did charge him with leaving the scene of a accident since the mark was quite fresh and he was already on probation for a previous DUI so I got my bills (hospital, bike check out, & new rain suit) taken care of by his insurance co and he got his probation revoked... So it all ends good...

Hey check out Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec Cheats for your code needs... It's got some thing at the bottom for $$$

slaintedan Gottico,
Sorry to hear about your accident, but I'm glad you're alive to talk about it!

I also want to commend you for wearing all of your gear under your rainsuit...a lot of people don't do it, thank God you did!

Did you get the guy's license plate?

Went down TODAY!!!!!!!!

Got stuck EARLY ( 0400 hrs ) this morning riding home from a friends house and it was a monsoon out there..... We've had this bad weather system down here in So. Fl all week and I've been lucky so far... Well I'm out in it, got the rain gear on and there's not much traffic so I'm crusing at about 45mph (speed limit 55) and all the sudden some MORON comes off a side street, blowing the stop sign, and damn near hit's me!!! He was soooo close I could smell the beer on his breath!!! I swerved to get out of his way and lost the rear end..... I managed to keep some control and get into the swale and lay it down in the tall grass......

No damage to the bike except for grass all in the faring and mirror adjustment....

I twisted my leg and back... Rain gear didn't survive but had reg. gear underneath...

Bad luck to talk about going down.

It's bad luck to talk about going down, but here goes. My last time was about (2) two years ago (so i'm over do). Damn woman in a car made a right turn out of a side street and kept going in front of me, and I hipchecked her car. I am a Motorcycle Mechanic /Service manager so i test ride bikes almost everyday
I have been ridding for 30 years now so I have streched it out to about every (2) two years.
