Rider lowsided right in front of me.....

I'm sitting at a red light with my kids in Silverlake as left turning traffic in front of me has the green. I see a bike coming, 05 YZF 600r, and notice he is traveling at a good clip. I think WOW, this guy is just gonna pitch it in there.
Problem was, he turned in way too soon. He chopped the throttle to miss a grate inlet in the middle of the turn and, BAM!!!! lost his front wheel. It just made the prettiest lowside I ever saw. The guy slid about 20' or so, the bike however, hit the opposite curb and flipped right over.
I was in the left lane at the time. The intersection was packed with cars and nobody moved!!!! I pulled across three lanes to get where I could help the poor guy. He had no injuries, other than broken pride,. His jeans were not even torn. He was wearing a jacket and gloves along with a brand new Shoei and boots. The bike was not damaged too badly either. Left side was scrapped. The stator was broken apart though. The bike would not start so we just pushed it into a near by parking lot and he called his Dad to come get it. The bike was only 6mos. old. Oh well. You live and learn. Very blessed rider! Next time he may learn to slow down before turning in so sharply on cold, dirty asphalt!!!!!!

Yeah, when I wrecked no one even helped me pick my bike up but they stopped to
watch. Even a couple of guys just drove really slow by me as I struggled to pick
the bike up, they were so closed that I could have spit on them if I had wanted to.

But that's okay cause I got their License plate # and put them on my list so that when I loose it from stress and start nocking people off I will then have my revenge...
...(finger tip touching lower chin,muhahahaha..muhahahaha)

I would've helped you out man but I was in Dallas at the time. I didn't believe you when you called and told me that you wrecked either. crazy ex-wives.
