Crashing your R6 into a car at 80km/h isnt fun
I was riding to the gym on the weekend and came around the corner at around 75-80km/h... some guy was stopped illegally in a no park zone right after the curve... I didn't see him in time and when I did it was too late to swerve. I hit him hard and flew 25 feet landing on pavement sliding/rolling. Miraculously I walked away with some road rash abrasions, bruises, and pulled muscles. I wasnt even wearing my gear... just workout pants and a t-shirt. I spent the night in the hospital and after xrays and CT scans they gave me the all clear in the morning. Scary experience though... but not deterring me from riding... I am already purchasing (against the strong wishes of my girlfriend lol) a 2004 GSX 1000R. the R6 is a write off... headlights, handlebars, radiator, fairing on both sides, all gone... im including a pic. remember to ride safe bros...

I'm sure the GSXR-1000 will make you 1 happy SOB!

been there...three times in fact

Glad to hear you're okay bro.
You're much safer on the GSXR...having a bigger bike is like having an SUV...the bigger the better...
Awwe well f*ck it... Have a blast with the new wheels, keep it on 1 wheel for me... and speed safe bro!

did you beat the living crap out of him like most guys on AR would suggest?
06-28-2004, 07:50 PM #12
Glad that you are ok. This is why I hate motorcycles!
I saw a bad one when I was young...guy got decapitated. His helmet stayed on....but his body ended up on the other side of the road

that must be a traumatizing experience

I will NOT get on a motorcycle ever ever ever. Not even one of those that you see outside grocery stores that you put a quarter in LOL

you can be safe as hell, have all the protection you need , all it takes is one careless driver in a car and your dead. rem its 4 wheels vs. 2. anyway glad your ok.

sounds like its his fault- so go through his insurance company and make them payoff the bike, you could also get one of those ambulance chasers to take on your case and sue.... i dont really agree with it, but it seems like the american way......
the 04 gixxer is a bad ass bike bro!!! i ride a 01 r1 which is nice but the new gixxers and r1s are just mean... the gixxer rides better on one wheel than it does on two!!!!
