Probably bad suspension. One time I had ridden my friend's bike just a few yards and I refused to test ride that thing again. Doesn't feel stable, it's all over the place.

Glad your okay GO to the doctor the sooner the better. They will fix you up with some good dope to make the swelling go down and you will also feel much better. I hope that your insurance will cover his bike I thought that insurance is transferable like that. Sucks to hear all this heal up quick.... glad to hear that you are doing the right thing about your friends bike

+1, but glad you're OK. I don't think his chicken strips had anything to do with it, unless the tires were cold.

Full coverage with Geico

I have Geico I called them to asked about my insurance, they told me. On a rental policy that the Full coverage would transfer over to the rented bike but if you borrow someone else's bike only the Liability portion that was not covered by their insurance would be covered by your policy. she read the clause and I quote "rental or riding a loaned bike" I say who the loans you a bike besides your friend? no company will or will they? I dunno seems like if they cover you for a rental they should cover you for riding a borrowed bike. Well that's my .02 cents about Geico I don't know about the other companies so good luck. Oh and in regards to the rental it does not matter what state you are in it covers you in all 50 as long as your policy was issued in Texas, I did not care to ask about policies in other states

+ 3 on checking with your insurance.

Hope you feel better soon and it is nothing serious.

I've been there before, wrecking someone else's bike and it sucks. The damage I did was less than $1000 but it was a good lesson. I would never ride another person's bike again unless I can afford to pay for it. However, a lot of insurances cover you on another bike. Check into it.

I also sent you a PM about an alternative solution.

Its all right I guess, however the zx6r is much more planted mid corner. The only reason I am saying this is because my previous bike was an 07 zx6r and now I own an 07 cbr600rr. Needless to say I really, really miss the ninja.

Get well soon man. Maybe you can buy it from your buddy and convert to a track bike or something. Just an idea if your insurance does'nt cover it. At least you could finance it if the title is still clean and clear.

Just say that you gave your friend $20 to rent his bike for the night.

Glad your ok. ...call your insurance carrier or agent and ask if you happen to have DOC coverage...drive other car coverage...that would cover any damage to your friends bike.
