Well I hate that this is my frist thread on here, but shit happens.

After 2 years of riding my old bike, and never laying it down...within 2 weeks on my new bike, I lost it.


Me and my buddy (05 R6) were just crusin some back roads, not even going but like 55mph, we get to this one decent curve, he speeds up a little (bout 8-10 lengths infront of me) goes around fine. Well, I keep it about the same, 60mph maybe, lean and start making the turn. Half way in the turn there is an oncoming SUV, and well...they were well over the line. It spooked me, pushing me up on the outerpart of the lane, which caused me hit a nice slick tar spot sliding my already close to the edge rear tire, off the road. I tried stayin in the throttle, but the sand was too much. Needless to say at this point, I ended up on my ass.

I was fine, pissed the hell off, but fine. I picked up the bike, and to be suprised, I only lost one mirror and some paint. So I have the new parts comming in this week, but I though I would share my fun weekend ride w/ everyone.


SUV's fucking blow :rant

That sucks! Glad you're O.K. though.
Did that SUV stop to see if you were O.K. or even notice he/she had run you off the road?? If not did your buddy chase em down? From your description of what happened, sounds like they were at fault & maybe you could have got them to pay you're repairs.

You are super lucky to be able to walk away from that one! Post some pics of the damage if you get a chance.

Glad to hear you're okay. That sucks though.

Have to agree with GM... did you follow the SUV, or get the plate # etc? Should have, and go after them for damages.

But in the end... as long as you're okay, "ya done good kid". :thumbup

Thanks for the kind words guys.

No I don't think they even realized what heppend. But my friend who was already ahead of me hauled ass back to check on me first and foremost. We got the bike up and check it over and stuff, but I think we were both a little flustered and chacing them down wasnt our main concern. I think we both were just glad that I was ok, and decided to call it a day.

We trailered it back to my garage where it awaits parts.


Ill post pics at the end of the day for everyone.

Something i've noticed is that the 07 zx6 side mirrors are REALLY long, i droped my bike a while back and orded a new mirror, the company sent me the 636 mirror by mistake, so when i put it on it was MUCH shorter, i acutally like the shorter mirror so i just ordered the other side......

glad your ok... the bike is fixable ........
Thanks. And x2 on the fixable part. It was all cosmetic. New ferrings (side uppper, and side lower have been ordered, as well as a mirror) and a buddy will touch up the front and rear sections in the paint booth for cheap. I should have it up, and looking liked new again by the weekend.

Pretty huh?

It is weird however, it actually doesn't hurt or anything. A little tender, but that's all. Hell I played golf the next day haha.

good to know that you're ok and didn't get hit by the SUV.
just last thursday night i was in a neighborhood going about my own business then all of a sudden an SUV comes out from a street without even STOPPING, i know it was going at over 30mph! if i were to leave the place i was coming from i would have gotten into a bad accident.
she turned from a street right in front of me and just looked at me. and didn't even look scared or cared.

we seriously need to track these kind of people down and destroy their houses.

I'll be sure to let you know once they come in.
