I dont recall exactly what happened, still seems like it was all a dream. I was cruising at about 30mph in a high traffic area (newport blvd). All I remember is I had just changed lanes and then had to break really fast, but somehow I nailed the throttle, then I grabbed too much break since the guy in front of me slammed on the breaks. I think because guy in front of him cut him off.. dont really know. either that or I'm just a f-up. it pisses me off cause i wasnt even jackin around, just cruising home. just goes to show that you have to be on your toes 100% of the time. I'm bummed, and my right leg is jacked. bike seemed to land upside down and I went flying forward over the bars. Didnt hit any cars. tank is perfect, just have to replace front plastics, and tail plastic. maybe headlight assy. I'll post pics when I get home this afternoon. I'm guessing a grand in damage. Well, im bummed, and I just wanted to vent.. :throwup

****, I just caught this today. I'm sorry to hear that, man. Well at least you weren't hospitalized. Fuckers cut me off left, right, and center all the time. The R6's brakes aren't all that great, so it can get spongey sometimes.

How's the bike doing? And how you healing up?

Sorry about what happened. But we are all glad that you are okay and no broken bones or anything.

Yup you are right, we need to have 110% attention around us!
Stuff like that happens even when you least expect it.
Cagers sometimes never think that there are other motorist out there
riding two wheelers.

Ebay is the cheapest place to find replacement parts.

Got most of my plastic for under $1200 including headlight unit, front forks

get some stainless lines.

anyways, sorry to hear this man. always sucks to here this shit. as Mikeeh said, people don't bother to look most of the time cuz they figure if they can see another car through their periphery they can see a bike that way but they can't. turn your head and cough you stupid cagers!

heal up soon man!

ppl just cant' drive these days. so becareful and always look out for mini-vans.... i mean alwasy look pass the cars infront of you

Yeah, I ended up getting Galfer steel braided brake lines, and they work wonders now, especially in the canyons...

Man that is some bullshit. I got my ass plastered just like that 2 weeks ago. Man I hate old farts, they are the problem to all my wrecks. I was riding home and the old bastard just stomped on his brakes and came to stop (40-0mph) cuase he got scared that some guy was comming into his laneb. And I might have freaked and pressed the front brake more than the back and did a stoppie. But it didnt end well with me going over. DAMN HOUSTON DRIVERS.

So cheer up bub, your not alone, we should make a gang and go after these fuckers.
