Sucks to be him.

Shouldn't Suzuki take that back? I mean it is a defective due to their welds.

After he wrecked it? I'm guessing that if you don't wreck your bike the welds hold together pretty good no matter what brand it is.

Thats what I was thinking. If the failed weld caused the wreck they would be hearing from my attorney.

Not the welds problem, he just got off the road and high sided. I was right behind him when this happened, didn't know I could stop that fast. He landed with the bike on his back. I also didn't know a 600 could be that heavy.

From what I saw it looks like the forks did not bend at all, the energy was transferred back and into the frame.

Oh and the break is not at the weld, it is just behind it. From my experience a good weld will not break, the material will break right next to the weld. The other side that you cannot see is broken farther forward, about half way between the weld and the goose neck.
