me and 2 buddys were riding earlier on bay area blvd.riding through some good curves.friend was trying to catch up with me.i had a little lead on him.he went a little to fast for his skill level.he has been riding for 3 weeks.he keeps saying he wants to trade his r6 for an r1.i keep telling him he needs more time on the r6.i tell him its more than enough for him for a while.he is a little weak when it comes to leaning through turns.well, he carried too much speed and didnt lean enough.ended up too far outside in a curve.tried to brake too hard in the turn being that he was leaning at the time and bit the curbe.threw him off in the grass luckily.bike only sustained minor damage too.lost blinker and bent the shift lever.little rash on left side too.he is fine, but is thinking about giving up on riding.ill work on that, but im not going to try too hard.he was doing about 60.

Let me be the first to say

MSF?

Maybe you need to be a better friend and set the pace where he doesn't feel the pressure to keep up, or try and give him some pointers on riding.

Hes prolly just shaken from the crash......give it time dont push him when hes ready he'll get back on. I think most of us on here have crashed at 1 time or another....whether it was our fault or not. Nobody is blamin u dude for him crashing....but sometimes u have to go out of ur way to make sure that they dont ride above their level. Its a good thing that he as ok and able to walk away from it.

be careful on bay area, especially after rains. it dries really slow, it's always covered with leaves, and the asphalt isn't very sticky to begin with, so it can be quite the handful if you're not ready for it. i won't even get into the dangers with the constant slow moving traffic or heavy law enforcement patrols. cruise that road at your own risk.

it doesn't until you get past space center blvd, then it's a series of nice long sweepers for about 6 miles, until you hit red bluff.

Was he wearing gear? Was he able to see that he got LESS rashed (hopefully) because he was geared up?

Bring him out to a gathering with responsible riders and let him learn to do it right if this is something he wants to continue.

Glad to hear he's alright; Since the first one is over, maybe he can respect it a little more and hopefully this doesn't detour him from giving up all together.

Tell him if he decides to keep it and wants some pointers, he can tag along on one of the weekend rides

we all have to learn lessons while riding. I learn something new everytime i get on my bike. sucks he had to learn the hard way, but at least he is still able to learn. Maybe he should re-evaluate his abilitys and the risk of riding, but I wouldn't discourage it, I would try to inspire him to get back on and see the good part of riding. Take him out to the country and let him get good out there where there is less danger. There is a great zen you can get from riding, everyone should be able to experience that. and it takes experience to get it too. DON'T LET HIS FEAR GET THE BEST OF HIM!!!!!

welcome, this story is all to common around here. Might as well just saved you some time and cut and pasted from another.

Let me go out on a limb here and ask some questions for general data sake.

MSF?
moto endorsement?
insurance?
wearing gear?

I bet he meant right of bay area! The are two roads that have " curves". But after you have hit the track they don't seem like curves at all! Be careful over there! It is not a place to push it, especially at night!
