So we went riding today me and 3 other guys (2 ninja 250's and a gixxer 1000) and a buddy of mine went down in a turn. It was an s turn and he went in a little too hot and hit a pothole tankslapped and got thrown off. he slid a 146 ft and the bike went 264 ft. I saw it in my rearview mirror and I definitly thought the worst. luckily it was a country road and there was no oncoming traffic cuz he ended up in the middle of the road. he was able to walk away with a bunch of road rash and he said hes pretty sore everywhere.. anyway heres some pics of the bike after

the cops said there is alot of accidents with the 250's cuz of how light the front end is and how thin the tire is
