Bike(s):
2005 zx6r









Dam I was lucky was looking after me I wrecked my green 05 zx6r on Oct. 30th. I was going 140 on westpark tollway with a broken rear brake pedal and I went over the hill and traffic was completely stopped... I was less than 40 feet away from them I had no choice, but to slam on my front break. I indoed at 140 and road for about 20 feet once I saw the explorer a couple of feet away from me I squeezed the break as hard as I could and I flipped the indoe I flew off and my bike stumbled. My body hit the explorer in the back going 100+... I broke his glass and dented his rear door. I broke my gold bladder and had to get my intestines fixed I got 30 stitches on my neck and 30 staples down my stomach I was at the hospital two weaks and two days... I couldnt eat and now Im recovering, but I still thank Im alive. You can see pics of my bike in my bros myspace http://www.myspace.com/alexjay_11

Sorry to hear about your accident and glad that you are alive. If you ever get back to riding again, please consider MSF class. Did you know that your front brake has 80-85% stopping power? At high speed, rear brake should be left alone or lightly touched unless you want fishtailing. Practice braking progressively with the front brake. Anyway, speedy recovery and hope to see you back on the bike again.

Its bad enough to see that but its worse when its someone you love. I have dealt with deaths/near deaths of loved ones in my life with similar circumstances.(drunk drivers sux)
You will get better and you will do a lot of thinking about things.
You have a family thats growing and focus on that. Losing sleep is part of the healing. Talking about this is very good. It helps to get it out of your system faster. It will fade eventually , You will never forget it you will always remember those who have passed.
You will be fine, man. I know you will. Good luck

Yea I have taken the MSF class at awesome cycles and yea everyone told me that the front brake is where all the stopping power is. Thats why I indoed, but I would much rather indoe and flip it; than to hit the car straight on. Now I see from that pic what could of happened if I wouldnt of flipped it. Thanks for the tip though and yea ill get me another bike later... we all fall and learn from are mistakes and we use what we have learned for the future

I think that you should take the bike out do a block or two to keep your mind of the accident. This way, you would also overcome your fear and nightmare. Soon, everything will be behind you. Riding is dangerous. We all knew that when we get on the bike, that we signed our name on Death list. Just matter of time, our name will called upon. Things like you have witnessed will not be taken granted. I am sure that you have appreciate life more fully than you ever did before. That is the whole irony in life, human nature tend to be relax and lazy until you missed something or lost someone then you would only regret. How many times have you gone out riding thinking that you might not come back? If you do have this notion, STAY HOME. I don't know. I am not at the scene but hearing so many bike wrecks it is scaring me.

I've been there, done that... witnessed it from the viewpoint of being the vehicle that was hit/rear-ended.

You have to remember, the cause of this accident was bad judgment and excessive speed both faults of the biker who has paid the ultimate price.
We've all heard of, and many of us I'm sure...have read the various 'Darwin' awards, and the blunt reality is this accident was not all that different. It just hits closer to home because it involved another rider.

Ride smart, ride safe and keep the speed and stunts where they belong...which isn't the street.

No, I didn't see 'that' one... but I watched as a 17yr old kid died, and saw the faces of his friends when took his last breath. I listened to the screams, the crying.. the arguing.

It sticks with you, but it wasn't your fault... you did what you could.
In times it fades.
