on your bike - you really should take a real close look at the forks and steering head before you decide to re-use the bike. The back end obviously took a big hit, but the front is much more fragile. Look for stress marks in the paint on the frame right near the steering stem. I've seen bikes where the front wheel wasn't damaged, but the outer bearing race and frame were damaged (broken race) from the leverage. I'm just saying it's better to know for sure that you have a good foundation before you invest anything into a broken bike.

Thanks Dave

No hospitals. No headaches. Heads 100%. Ankle still hurts but I can put pressure on it today.

right, there's a site sponsor that supposedly has a frame zig, might be a good idea to get that cheacked out, though it might need an intact swingarm to get good measurements.

Guys can circulate at under 1:35 and have no issues with sealer and bumps and seams and "insert your fav here".
Holy thats fast! Just how many can lap that quick without issue? We are talking less than 10 right?

Back on a GSXR!!! 08 600









Gear is great! Last wreck i had on jacket jeans crappy gloves riding boots and helmet. I had road rash everywhere. On my back, leg, and hands. This time I was in full leathers. Not a scratch on me. This wreck was way worse too. Last one i just slid down the road a little bit. This one I was sliding, rolling, and flipping. Concussion gone and ankles at 90%. Feeling great.
















Bikes still up though
