all i can say is rookie mistake. trin'a hot one too many wheelies with my R6. too much thottle. went straight up, slide on the tail for a min, then started flippin'. it was like a bad dream while i was layin' on the ground lookin' at the whole thing. not too. all fairings are scratched some cracked, dent/scratched gas tank, hole in oil cover, tail/undertail/tail lights broke rear seat messed up, front fairing with head lights busted, windshield busted, mirror gone, right side clipon snapped.switched busted. i think ebay will be my friend for a while. any ideas?? i'll try to put some pics.

1. Crawl before you walk
2. Walk before you run
3. Don't get insurance

I don't know...do you? Common sense would suggest you figure out how it works with both tires on the ground before you try one.

Are you new or are you good? Its not likely that you are both and if you are the former, you are not likely the later. Doing wheelies when you are "new at all this" and "trin'a gett your feet wet" is akin to entering a triathlon after being a couch potato...lots of pain awaits you. When all is said and done, I hope the only thing rashed up is the bike.

And humble too! Does that include spelling and grammar? I would also argue that you are not very good at wheelies. I suppose that you do have to learn somehow and I am sure racers area wide will thank you for your future spare parts donations!

The title under your name is rather apropos though..no?

Hmmm sounds like a rookie mistake to me...not that I have any room to talk.

LMAO. Yeah there are asses on here. They sometimes like to do things like "point out the painfully obvious".


Don't worry R6! You'll get your bike fixed! You didn't get hurt! You'll be back on the road soon! Maybe you can get an R1 with the insurance money!

R6,
The phrase under your name reflects your post count.
More posts=different name.
Seems like you have the right label though.
