I'm sure you can find someone who has totaled the bike in the lot of the dealership...not too long ago a guy died in the dealer lot, may he RIP.

I personally have no sympathy for someone not wearing gear. This was just a case of natural selection. If you are too stupid to wear gear then you have obviously made a conscious decision to ride unprotected which has its consequences like everything else. I am not a gear nazi but I would assume a full faced helmet would have done him a lot of good crashing into a parked car at parking lot speeds.

I've seen a guy pull out of the dealer lot, go about 50 feet down an alley, miss the turn onto the street and ride the bike into a brick wall. He came back asking if the dealer was going to help him pay for the bike and they laughed at him. I did too.

Totaled an 06 Gixxer the day I picked it up, 56 miles on it. Insurance company did not even have a deprecated value, since the bike was so new.

Sucks when it happened, but I would not have an R6 if it did'nt. I am now glad it did happen.

i agree, i am not totally about gear all the time,,, esspecially here in New Mexico where it gets upto and over 100 in the summer, but if your not wearing it then your just playing with your own life. ive had 7 friends killed all wearing gear, but you know what they were doing things putting themselves in harms way, though i miss them, they were gambling their lives and lost. when my time comes, im gonna make sure i can at least say i tried to protect my self and wore my lid at the least.

Friend of mine worked at a shop.
They had more bikes get wrecked 50 ft from the front gate than he can count.....
30 ft driveway, 1 right turn and BAM ! :toocool:
After warning them about new tires being slick etc.;)
One kid walked back in and asked if they wanted to buy it back (crashed).
They told him to go call a towtruck......:lmao

I know a guy who wrecked his bike on a curb just about 1/4 mile from the dealer. He was taking it down the street on its very first trip on the street and hit hit a curb and knocked the oil plug off. It was an SV650 so I don't know how he managed to do it but he did.
