Wreck 1: Low sided on a 40mph 90% left hander.

Lesson learned: 4 year old tires with monster chicken strips CANNOT be scrubbed in. Just replace them


Wreck 2: Low sided on a 35mph 45% left hander on a few pebbles

Lesson Learned: Gravel sucks, shoes come off, GEAR WORKS.

1st:(2001) Locked the rear, came around. Lowside. <------learned that I wasn't that good at riding yet.

2nd:(2003) Old lady in a monte carlo REALLY wanted to turn left through a light. I had right of way, she had yield. She didnt yield. I hit the right-rear wheel. Very solid impact, flipped over the car into traffic. Dude in a big dually slid his shyt sideways to prevent any other cars from hitting me. <----learned that some older drivers dont look.

3rd:(2005) Same wreck as #2, new bike(Mladin). Niromuhammed Piromuhammed(I shyt you not, that was his name) turned left RIGHT in front of me. I didnt even have a chance to touch the brakes, only enough time to jump! Leg caught the windscreen and witnesses reported I flipped 3 times before landing on my head. Dude drove off, but a soccer mom in her SUV chased his down!!! Probably good he wasnt there when I got up, because I had my helmet off, in my hand and was looking for the dude so i could beat his face in! <----lesson learned...gear FTMFW, cause cagers will try to kill you.

I remmeber those pictures. OUCH! You know it might be helpful to other members if people can include the original link and pictures to their wreck if they did discuss it in detail before on the board.

Be ready for that person be to just stupid enough to go ahead and try to make it, when there isn't the time/space for them to make it.
Assume the idiot IS going to go for it, instead of thinking/hoping they're NOT stupid enough to try it.
almost did that 2pm wednesday. Some guy was tuning his radio and pulled out onto the road. I'm going to try to ride as far away from pullout traffic as possible at all times. Thats part of my new rules of staying safe. Another rule I want to put myself on is on the highway always ride on the lane where the shoulder is unless for some reason its not safe.

well, i laid my bike down 3 times...1st time i was trying to pull out a neighborhood going up hill and couldn't touch the ground when i went to stop and fell right over (i'm barely 5'1), 2nd time was at PP69 getting gas and the ground was slightly unlevel and again, lost my footing cause i could barely touch and it went down, 3rd time was in G-town and i had a diabetic episode and went down but not bad - bike ended up in a small patch of sand and no damage was incurred.

so how could i have avoided these you ask???? maybe if my legs could at least grow a couple more inches longer and i remember to eat on time, i should be ok in the future

That is always response. As you are laying there , rashed and broken the first thing that comes out of mouth is "How is my bike"

First... on a track in California. Didn't have next to any experience and I tried to recreate what happened. I totaled the bike, suit and paid for it all working at a restraunt(wasn't mine, I was helping out a friend and their group.)

Multiple times on the first 600 I had. My wife and I use to drift it in the rain around the backroads where we lived.

Katana... wrecked by everyone that has ever learned to ride on it(basics etc. Mainly dropped.) On my Bday four years ago a friend's friend I didn't know decided to ride it while I was salsa dancing and put it straight into a curb at 35.

I was rear ended on the busa at HMP.

Hit last year at a downtown parking lot during Amanda's BDay bash from a chevy truck... pushed me into a while(I was hard on brakes but wasn't fast enough)

And dropped the busa twice... second day and another time I believe.

Every hit I had was hit and run by truck folk.



I learned to always watch my mirrors at a stop light and always gear up for everything else you cant see coming.

yup! i know a few people that ride that are even shorter than i am and i honestly don't see how they manage to stay right side up more than on their side

Wreck: http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=49498

Lesson Learned:
There are some serious dumb fucks that should be killed off because of their lack of intelligence. They made an illegal left hand turn in front of me. I did nothing wrong and had no time to react.
