Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000
I think that we're looking at this thread the wrong way.
First off, has RiceRocketKev learned his lesson? Yes. He's said so himself. With a lot of the mean spirited comments here along with the lashing he's receiving on his youtube video I think we can cool it. It's redundant, pointless and gets nowhere.
Second, we are confusing his request for help. The question he is asking is not: Should I ride again? Should I get a 600? A cruiser? Is it worth it to rebuild my bike? He has already made up his mind about rebuilding and that's his choice. He is asking for anybody with knowledge of bikes to help him out. If nobody on this site is capable of rebuilding a GSX-R or if nobody in this community is gracious enough to help a fellow rider out with 1 or 2 emails a month then i'm sure this site isn't what he thought it was. If you can't answer that call then move on to another thread.
Third, there could be a lot of potential to helping him out. Think about it. His video is getting tons of hits everyday on youtube. People, naturally, would be curious to see if he goes through with the rebuild. If you are a moto vlogger you can get more traffic to your page by him mentioning you were gracious enough to help him out. Or, if you or somebody you know owns or works at a motorcycle shop he could order parts exclusively from you (5% discount?) and mention your site in the vid.
It's not our bike and it definitely isn't our money so if he wants to rebuild then let him. If interested in helping him out just PM him and exchange emails or something. I've already subscribed because im curious to see if he actually does it. No hate here.
