Rode my brand new GSXR 600 home on Nov. 2nd and on Jan. 4th this happened. a construction truck left some rocks in the road and i happened to go right through em while in a left hand turn at 95mph. all things considered it could have been worse but its still hard to look at sometimes... just thought id share. Enjoy

or maybe you shouldnt of been taking a corner at 95 mph :hmmm:
I love people that type this kind of crap! There are times (all of us have done it) that you are ripping around corners at illegal speeds. Because of this I will never "throw stones" and critisize someone for speeding (especially if they went down).

Stan, if you always stay within the speed limit and never push your bike sell it. You arent taking advantage of what that bike has to offer.
Just my $.02

agree with 97srad

people who say "You shouldnt of been speeding thru the corner" GET OVER IT

what the hell do you do with your bike? sputter around 35 mph?

The track is great for 100 mph fun, but 65 mph fun is fine in certain road conditions, like the backroads it looks like he was on.

that sucks man. Down here in southeast MO almost all the fucking roads seem to have gravel in the curves. It sucks to be near the apex of a decreasing radius curve and see gravel. I have felt my rear end get loose a few times. don't know what to tell you not gonna bitch at you for speeding cause we all do just watch that entry speed so next time you hopefully see the gravel first.

put a little cash into it and made it look and run better than it did when it was new. figured while it ws down i might as well upgrade things such as the exhaust and such while the fairings were off.

I'm assuming that's not the stock swingarm? I thought a longer swingarm makes the bike not want to corner as well?
