failure to use good judgement, bad luck, on the roads, etc....

Ive been riding street bikes for about 14yrs now. I have say until I joined the forum a yr ago, I had no idea how often this happens. Unfortunely, 99% of the time its rider error. Be careful out there. Especially if the R1 is your first bike.

ok, so i just got back from seeing mark (the guy that wrecked) overall he's fine. he has pins in his left ankle, right ankle is fractures, left wrist has pins, and he has road rash on his arms, and from the top of his back to the bottom of his back. he's had surgery on his knee as well. the nurse was trying to get him to walk today. he is slowly progressing tho.

The rider behind me does anyone know who he was? He had a bike just like mine blue and yellow 1000RR. I wanted to know what it looked like."

The real question is why this MF'er even has a bike? Lucky he's not dead...retarded people out there I tell ya

Obviously you're the ****ing idiot. Why don't you just shut up until you know what happened? Fellow rider goes down and all you can say is it looks like a couple of idiots. Then you go pull some post and quote something that isn't even from the same rider.
