one minor accident, my fault...too fast for conditions....lowsided, hit the curb and went flippity flip (walked away with some rash on my arms (and 500 dollars or so in tickets)...no gear...18 and DUMB.

2nd one was also minor(sorta, and I was 20)....right hand sweeper, approx. 60/65 mph, got freaked out by an oncoming car hit the front brake, bike stood up and went into the ditch on the other side of the road....slid on my back hitting my helmet repeatedly on the ground. Was wearing jeans, boots, jacket, and helmet. I also walked away from this accident as well.

WEAR YOUR GEAR PEOPLE!!!!!!!

are you just asking about street or do you want track included? I've been down 3 times on the street. None were fun. All 3 were my fault. Raced for most of my life. Been down on the track more than I can count

We were near Rankin behind one of the strip centers where there was a nice straight-away. Basically, I clutched and throttled the same way I did w/ my Mustang--(popped the clutch and hit the throttle hard)--- thank I have long legs and the bike had been lowered for his gf, cuz it shot out from under me like a rocket. Sorry to the guy whose bike I fu$%ed up, and if U are on here, your exhaust burned the out of my leg--nothing like riding w/ shorts and flip flops on. Anyhoo, homeboy left me and I flagged down a security cop who gave me a ride back to my car. good times So far that's the extent, but after I pick up my bike next week I'm sure I'll have plenty of pics and stories to entertain the group.

First wreck: Night I graduated High School. Car pulled out in front of me. I looked the brakes up and the tail came around on me. Lowside into the ditch. I was hauling and could have handled it better. So Id say the first wreck was me and the cagers fault. Me for my speed and them for pulling out.

Second Wreck: Dec 19, 2003. Old lady turned left right in front of me. No time to react. Straight into her quarter panel. Totalled my FZR. Broken Tailbone. Cagers fault.

Third Wreck: May, 05. Same exact wreck, 2 blocks away from FZR wreck.
Iranian dude pulled int front of me at intersection. Only thing I could do was jump before the impact. Totalled my new Mladin GSXR. Cager left the scene but was chased down by a rowdy dude on an old busted YZF and some soccer mom in her suv. Cagers fault for sure.

2 cagers fault. 1 my fault and cager fault.


Oh, and I dropped the FZR over in the driveway once or twice. Does that count? Cause that was the driveways fault...for being too....driveway-ee.

Went down once, my fault. Last Nov. I was hittin up the twisties being stupid in Brookshire and took a "S" turn way to fast (130mph). I was scraped peg and front tire started to lose grip. Instead of lowsiding on that hard asphalt I decided to just take off in the grass and dump it...bad idea. I went flippidy flip through the air and so did the bike. Limped away with a broke ankle and a up bike.
