Glad to see you're not seriously hurt....we won't go on and on about what cold have happened or what should have been done, I'm sure you don't need the brow beating......and I'm sure you learned an important lesson.

Yellow tail sections are on Ebay all day long......white ones on the other hand, grrrrrr.

I'd say what you can't fix can be found on Ebay easily.

How bad is your camera? That's one of my fears when recording, having the camera fly off.....

I'm sorry to hear of your mishap, but really glad you're OK. You'll be a little sore, but it'll pass.

Hey Roy, I gasped when I saw the post. The last thing I wanted was another friend going down. Riding lately has been difficult as it is without losing another friend. I'm glad you're alright. I'll bet your glad you had your gear on too. Many don't stop to think that what turned out to be minor injuries today could have been much worse or even fatal without proper gear.

PTL your alright to ride again..

Here is the vid...you can see from the vid...my dumb ass didnt pay attention to the sign..other wise I wouldnt be fixing my bike right now. Also, you can see that you dont see the turn until the last second..but IF I would have watched the signs...this wouldnt have happened.

In this pic, I think my slider nailed this guys quarter panel, explaining why it bent.




And now the vid...The more I watch this...the sicker I get.

Damn, I hate to see that.

And I am not one for cop bashing, but that cop was a dick.

I have been in a few car wrecks (some mine, and some the other guys) and EVERY TIME the cops have not written anyone tickets, as having to fix the other dudes shit on your insurance is usually enough of a punishment. But we are sportbike riders and they like to fuck us


Glad you are OK though man........ the bike doesnt matter

That is my cam mount. The cam mount itself is fine, but the camera got the bottom ripped off, so it wont be used anymore for a motorcycle. It still works though, and the only reason is, it got flung up under the windscreen, and got stuck. If it would have went flying, that might have been another story.

Thanks Kevin, I knew you would be supportive. Your right about gear. Luckily Amethi woke my ass up and I realized that jeans wont help in a crash on asphalt.

Watching that video makes me realize how fast those things happen and that you can never trust people to use their flashers...

Wow, that video is unreal.... I am really happy you are o.k. I can definetly see what you are saying about the road going straight and not seeing the turn. I bet your buddy didnt see it either since he just barely made it through before the guy turned. It could have been much worse, but like I said I am just happy you are o.k.

You can always get another bike, you on the other hand cannot be replaced
You'll be back up and running in no time

i noticed the van didnt use any turn signals. not that it matters legally- considering you were passing on a double yellow stripe-but had the ass used his blinker, you probably wouldnt have tried to pass.

in any case, im glad youre okay, and theres nothing wrong with your bike that cant be fixed. youre lucky.
