I ride a YZF 600R. Great bike. Too bad the weather sucks most of the time in this area, I would ride more... Gotta love 110 mph in third :grin:, and that's before I merge! It awesome to have to SLOW DOWN to merge into traffic. Good times for sure!

Once the riding season starts up again in say, February, I should have my 93 Nighthawk 250 on the pavement. I figure it is a good start for the next year or so. Not sure which direction go to from there, though those BMW's had me salivating! :slobber:

Well, after 7.5 yrs of riding I finally laid the previously mentioned bike down. Not much damage to me or the bike. Just needs new handlebars to be ridden again.

I pretty much feel like I ran into a brick wall on foot.

Hope you all wear some kind of helmets, I woulda been way worse off with out it.

Glad you're ok man! That totally sucks :( Only time I have been down was when I got t-boned. Not fun. Sold the bike and it still rides to this day :)

Very glad you are ok and the bike is not totaled. What happened? Shows us the damage and battle scars man!

thanks man!

i got some damage pics of the bike which i'll post later tonight, its amazingly minimal, to the bike and myself, 4 quarter sizes spots of roadrash, sprained hand, going for a shoulder xray this week

just sucks that my left shoulder and right hand are messed up. 2 half functioning arms is way worse than one whole bad one.

i'll post the 'report' and pics up after work

Glad that was all the damage you sustained! Sucks having two messed up wings, but it's better than not having them! One thing that I learned from my accident, I ALWAYS wear my gear, no matter how hot it is. I always have my jacket on, gloves, and helmet on at all times.

Glad you are ok dood. Sometime people don't walk away from those things, so good to see you made it!

Look forward (maybe bad phrasing??:lol:) to see the pics!

here are some pics of the minimal damage, and then a pic with the new handle bars on and front fender off, (we'll see how much ************ hits me, it might go back on)

i gotta do somethin with the front brake line, get a shorter one or something, that curve cant be all that great for it. also i have to re run the clutch cable a different way to take some stress off of it but for now it'll be fine.

sure is interesting getting used to a new handle bar position!
