The bike took most of the pain it seems. He had some good gear on! It hurts me to look at them.

Well I went ahead and made a claim on my insurance. I told them what REALLY happened just to save myself possible headache. Thanks for the advice some of you gave me anyways Whatever happens from now on is out of my control. I was just reading through my policy and apparently my gear is covered in there too! Anybody ever buy back a wrecked bike before? I build honda B and K series engines in my spare time. I wouldn't mind building myself a spare triple motor.

If your a good group lead, you will stick to the speed limit or 5 over and keep and eye/contact with your sweeper. IF, some yahoo from your group doesnt like the pace, GO AROUND you know were the group is going, if you want to show off and turn the road into a track go for it! but its your when you either a. get a ticket (if your lucky) or b. wreck and hurt yourself (if your lucky) or c. wreck and die...(not so lucky..)

thats all im going to say on group rides. ive started way too many in my day and seen too many things! so giving my 2 cents
called it yesterday.. like i said , i feel bad for the guy that wrecked, but trying to turn 149 into a track or going fast on that road is just not safe. me and dave rode it today and we had a car pull out from a street after a hill (so it was a blind turn so to speak) and we were going the speed limit and were able to avoid being hit.... i could just imagine what would of happened if we were going 100+

I bought back my ZX-6R. Maybe I missed it but why do you need a spare motor?

Well....Tiatool did a good job with the pre ride meeting. We talked about limits, speeds, particular corners, gear etc.

I didn't see him go down. Maybe someone did. It was the first time I had met him. He didn't and still doesn't strike me as a show off. I think he just made mistake.

Let's not assume he was hauling , showing off, feeding his ego or any of those other sterotypical things.

I do agree with you though...100+ on 149 is stupidity. :nono:

I would buy the bike back and buy a new frame swap the frames and alittle body work and put some money in your pocket or buy another used bike! Now you have two bikes. Then you will have to choose witch one to ride.

I have to agree that the pre ride meeting, advice, leader/sweeper setup, etc...it made a world of difference. I was quite a bit surprised with the level of organization with so many people. Everybody seemed to genuinely care about everybody elses safety and actively demonstrated that concern. Many thanks to all those more experienced taking care of the newer riders.

My crash had nothing to do with the pace of the other riders. I was on my own pace and felt perfectly comfortable until the moment I leaned in for that turn and saw what I had committed to. It is refreshing to see that there are decent people in this hobby that don't hesitate to help each other. That aspect alone makes me want to get back on ASAP. I think the ride home in the 90+ degree heat in dense traffic sucked more than the fall :P

just trying to point things out for the new people to not try to ride over their heads down new roads...

if you dont know the road, go half of your "normal" pace, till you learn the road.. simple as that, dont expect to be able to go your "normal" pace that you do around town on a road you have never been down before.

because there is always going to be a turn you cant read or arent too sure with and you wont make the turn correctly. thats why i always suggestion riding below your pace on a new road. dont try to match your pace compared to what you have done on other roads.

its just like the track, first session out your not going to go to the wall. your going to take your time, not even go over prob like 60-70 and just get re-adjusted to your bike. re-learn your lines and then later in the day start picking up the pace.

After cranking a few miles under my belt, i have learned these things and with the start of the summer coming apon us i just want to try and get the noobs to learn SOMETHING before the summer starts and thats to BE SAFE out there when you ride. because this is not, and will not be the last wreck of the year. But if i can keep one person from wrecking this year then ill be happy.

I know when i started riding i acted a fool and did some stuff i shouldnt of done, but i lucked out and didnt wreck. I had my close calls and learned my lessons. So im just trying to pass down some of my experience down to others who are starting out fresh and are trying to find their path in the motorcycling world. Because i was in their shoes not too long ago.

If you take this information as talking , then your obviously retarded in the first place and your parents should of spanked you more when you were a kid. Because when someone offers information trying to help you and you turn around and say they are talking then you have issues.....


that is all

that is all
I think your parents should have put a bar of sope in your mouth. Who are you to say I told you so, and accidents happen every day! that is why they are called accidents! For one rider to wish or say that I called it is so wrong and just not right. Yea you are wrong we are not retarted just educated, you sound like you know what you are talking about well sir you don't just sound retarted! No matter how many times you may run the track or the same road there is always going to be something new everytime you ride. you sould know that or(called it) bad things happen to good people everyday and there is no way that you could have called this. It ws not even on 149! What happened was a miss hap and thank that he was looking out for us on our ride today. So before you call it or give advise I want to see you on a gpmoto race or as instucture on the track or in a safty riding course. Until then I would not say a word about someones riding ablilties!

His lowside was in a right hand turn after a small bridge on 3090. The bike was barely off the roadway in the ditch, he couldn't have been going much over 40mph and the turn was posted as 30mph (I think). Perhaps the bike wasn't settled before diving into the turn or maybe his tires were on a paint stripe/tar snake. Who knows.

I'm just glad he was able to walk away and ride it home. What a trooper!
