Not sure a cruiser would have made a difference as he mentioned he was under the speed limit and following three cars pulling away from a light. Speed and power were not the issue here. If anything, he would be worse off since he would most likely not be wearing a full suit, gloves etc on a cruiser

Stop stereotyping rocket bikes.

OP: glad you're recovering and not dropping riding due to one freak incident.

Stop being a Troll. That has nothing to do with the point of my comment.

Also reading comprehension. This is not his first accident.

Yeah, it's definitely nice knowing it's there, though I feel like mine is a little too sensitive in street mode. It kicks in all the time over little pot holes and cracks in the street which is distracting. Also, it will try to put you in the grass if you don't turn it off at the track.

Traction control on the other hand is awesome. Definitely saved me from a high side at the track, though I wish they could separate wheelie control from traction control.

Helmet has been tossed, too much crap in our house/garage to keep trophies around.

Nope, this is not my first get off, a few back I went off the side of the road and ended up breaking my foot, didnt put the bike down though, and before that I did a little landscaping at Summit main, but that was so minor I was back out for the next session.

Here is one, the track day one Id have to try harder to find;
So nice I broke it twice.

Glad you're posting. Take the time and heal it right so you can ride longer.

I got that bug-eye stuff too. I just tell them my job is more dangerous than riding but no one tells me I should quit working. That usually shuts them up since they actually have to think about it.

Eat salmon and broccoli, good luck - lam

Good for you, lots of calcium in those two. I know there are supplements but I can't help believing that getting it from food is more effective. Your recipe sounds really good too.


As for Fitz - No, not yours. To keep from losing it I've put handlebars on my chair.

whops thought you were referencing my avatar fitz.

On another note, Im gonna need a new helmet, I will probably go the close out route, and will be looking for a top of the line on the cheap.

I loved my Nolan X-lite, AGV was ok, my Arai was toasted, but I loved it up until I took an asphalt induced nap.

Big focus, I have an oval head, and the Arai was one of their only lines that fit me correctly. Any recommendations, do the new Bells have a size that fits oval heads, Sharks? Scorpion? Quality is the most important factor, as I said to the ER doc when he asked about my helmet and I said it had a $600 sticker price(closeout got for like $200), when buying a helmet, how much is your head worth?


Another request, I have found no parts for the 08 Z1000 on ebay, anyone know where I can get parts for this, unless I find something, Im going to need to use a claim against my insurance, and with the lil ding to the tank they may total it, and I dont want that.
