  • yamaha's grow on trees?

    ok, i got these pics from a different forum. first off i hear the rider is doing pretty good, and i'm not trying to disrespect him at all. i was not on this ride, but i watched a friend loose it in the same corner last summer. its a very hard decreasing radius right hander after a fast section of down hill turns, it really catches you off gaurd...........here is the corner, and his skid marks

    and here is where his bike landed..........he went another 40+ feet down the hill and was pulled up on a strecher. there is nothing funny about this, but i find the photo a bit comical. i'm very glad the rider is doing ok

        Oh wow.. Doesn't even look like the bike is in one piece.

        Was he wearing his gear? I sure hope for his sake he was!

                  And by his account, it was caused by a damn cager left of center.

                    Luck was on his side

                    Often hear about the cagers crossing the line and taking a life. Good thing it did not happen to him.

                    I also wonder how well did he know the road??

                          This is what sucks about BIG group rides. You get a lot of riders and the chances of a bad wreck increase it seems x20 by each rider over a number of 5

                          I picked up a new habit from a guy I ride with. When im leading on a curvy road I wave at oncoming cars like a fucking retard getting teir attention. The HI BIKES ARE ON THE ROAD TO WAVE. I also kinda weave towards them to push them further over in their lane a little so the bikes behind me have a better chance of having a clear lane Does it really work I try though.
