wait....how does that make him a squid?
Yeah really... The guy at minimum was wearing a jacket, gloves, and helmet... Sure he pushed it a bit beyond his limits, but how do you know your limits unless you exceed them?
I'd say the fact that the whole POINT of that vid was to say "WEAR YOUR GOD DAMN GEAR" makes him absolutely NOT a squid...

This person posts on the R6-forum, he posted this vid much like Beesting posted his. I in no way think he is a squid and I am happy that he shared what happened to him. He had to have surgery on his spleen, he felt fine at first after the accident but 30 minutes later the pain started so he went to the hospital.

Here is one post not his original but this one goes into more depth on the bike - http://www.r6-forum.com/nuke/modules.php...asc&start=0

I wish a fellow rider a safe and speedy recovery

Hes a



He over shot the turn and just lost the front end in the gravel. Sure he's wearing gear! But a bell 69 dollar special/ generic gloves/ textile jacket. That stuffs fine for regular cruising but it wont hold to riding twisties highspeed. Hes got more money in his exhaust then he does on gear



Plus he rides a yamahahaha aka the piano
and whats up with the break away forks, I swear yamaha's should stick to piano's

At least he wasn't in shorts and sandals, like a lot of A-HOLES around here.

looks to me like he was just trying to stay with his buddy infront but just couldn't do it... riding beyond his ability.

I disagree. I don't think this guy is a squid. Listen to his corner entry and as he goes through the Apex. He knows how to come into a corner and how to exit. Just came in a bit too hot.
