The Sportster. I think what saved me was the fatter front tire (neither popped) and the fact that its raked a bit more than the R6.

That's right, enough with the irresponsible moron contractors. I even get when flatbeds are not secured properly or tie downs look defective.. cops ticket that but still some drivers just don't give a faq and lazy out their work

dude, cast wheels or spokes on the Sportster? The cast ones are pretty bulletproof but I'd get the beads checked out regardless. Did it kick up beneath the bike at all?
Glad you are OK.

Years back I watched a flatbed lumberyard truck hauling a load of wood doors slip about seven or eight of them off the back. Turns out he only had one strap on them, and it was up near the front. Since I actually used that particular lumber yard, I called their dispatcher and balled him out for letting their truck out of the yard like that, and never ordered from them again.

like this from these kind of idiocity is what gives drivers the rep we got.
I assure you that more than half the drivers I know would never risk safety over a quick buck
But then there's the rest..

Agreed, I go to great lengths to check loads after a delivery truck is buckling up before they leave my jobsite, because the cops, property owners, and neighbors don't give a that it was a delivery driver, my liability insurance will be the first one sued. Most of the time, the driver's got it good and secure. Most of the time is not enough, though.
