good reminder to ride within your limits, don't go fast because the guy in front of you is going fast. if the person behind you wants to go faster, they'll pass you on the next straight.

Ex-Import crashed my bike after installing a new tire. They had to replace swing arm, tail, all side fairings, front fairing, clutch lever, engine covers.....I was not a happy camper. Would this count?

Or a patch of wet leaves and debris (2 days after Ike). 15 mph, bike fixed, and still have numbness from crunching my cell phone into my right hip.

I tried reasoning with the guy, he said the best he can do is "take care of me" the next time I need some repairs done.....HA, I see how well the shop took care of me in the first place. Needless to say, I didn't pay a dime for the tire change.
I was very upset about the whole ordeal but now I know never to go back there again.
