Exclamation I went down today

well it finally happened....all those people who say its not if its when turned out to be right.... i was coming down the beltway feeder and a buddy from work was drivin behind me so i showed him my new tricks :BangHead: i did an endo and when it was coming down my handlebars started to turn side to side real fast (tank slapper?) until it finally turned all the way left and i got thrown off the right side of the bike! im sliding and watching my bike sliding a few feet behing me. next thing i know im on my feet just staring at my bike in total shock.....it was like a dream state the whole time it was happening...im still in a little shock cuz it just happened about an hour ago but im happy to say im just fine, i ended up with very minor scrapes and bruises and a very sore back.....THANK !!! i had my gear on today cuz i havent been wearing my jacket just the helmet and gloves, but since it was cold this mornin i put it on. my jacket sleeve has a huge hole in it and is burned up in a few other spots, fortunately my visor was flipped up and kept the helmet from getting the scratches.....as for my bike the frame sliders worked beautifuly and only ended up with a few scratches on the lower right fairing and the exhaust...... overall i must say i was very lucky, my friend was driving behind me and was more freaked out than me...must have been crazy to see....i cant be mad cuz it was my own fault but im very thankful to have gotten out of it with minimal damages and im glad i learned my lesson on wearing gear this way and not the other way around.....anyways just had to tell my story but im thinkin no more stunting for a while and im def going to invest in a steering damper....

wear your gear

Glad you're OK.
It's funny how people, not neccesarily you, realize the importance of ALWAYS wearing gear after the fact. Just like those lucky enough to survive a crash with no helmet will say that they wish they were wearing one at the time. It kills me to see sport bikers riding with thier lid on the back seat, thinking that they are soo cool. If only they knew how uncool that really is!!!!!

Glad you're ok... try doing stunts in parking lots. You didn't help improve the public image of sportbikers.

Im glad everyone trys to be like me and do stunts in the streets but im sorry guys theres only one prodigy learn yo in the parking lots or back streets first then once you know there on lock them take it to the streets. And it is called a steering damper. By the way i also got a tank slapper once and it was in front of 4 cops :BangHead: but i was lucky and they only laughed at me i think it had something with the fact that i was also on private property

Oh I've definitely done wheelies before on public roads. But on feeder roads, that's a negative. With traffic behind me, again that's a negative. Only on back country roads with someone with a cell phone with me. :icon_smil

Sorry ghost rider... the pattern is full. Your move was dumb.

BTW... I only ride track.

hmm well it seems a bit rediculous to claim to have to have someone driving behind you with a cell phone everytime your front wheel comes off the ground, but if thats the truth than more power to ya but thats a bit overkill if you ask me....
i never said what i did was smart but i didnt do it in the middle of a bunch of traffic, the only car around me was my co-worker driving a little ways behind me just to clear that up...

When I practice stunts on the streets, I try to find an ambulance and practice right in front of it, in case something goes wrong, help is right there.

You guys need to think one step ahead.

I see Steve poppin' wheelies all the time on "wheelie hill" just before turn 4 at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

Shame on you Mr. O'Chap.
