well it finally happened... im not even sure what happened. pulled out of a gas station and hit the throttle, not more than i usually do, but for some reason the front end popped up real fast and over it went on me, it all just happened so fast that i really dont even know where i went wrong. i know i should have let off the throttle but it happend so fast there wasnt much i could do. but any ways i slide down the road a bit, probably happened at aroun 40 mphish.. but i stop sliding, and just see my bike doing a flip down the highway. and my heart sank.... i ended up with roadrash on my elbows... my shoe was torn up and my toe got it pretty bad, but other than that im good to go. but, i had 4 people stop and ask if i were ok, and i pulled my bike and many many pieces to the side of the road. front fairing is shit now, basically everything but the forks in the front, but the headlight and gauge is fine... and the whole tail section is fucked... i love frame sliders for saving the sides of my bike. sooo it'll be fixed soon i hope. ill post pics later

with it only being a 600, you must have been trying to bring the front up. did you slip the clutch alittle too fast?
cause with my sixxer i have to try to bring her up by letting off the throttle and back on, then it comes up. but not just by getting on the throttle will it come up.

i agree, it sucks that happened but for me to have the front end come up you've either got to snap the throttle and lean back or clutch it

I think he meant what kind of armor were you wearing like boots, leather, helmet and gloves. That kind of thing.

Yeah but still...if he would of said my 04 1000...and told the whole story...maybe a bit more believeable.

You'd have to be leaning way back on a 600 to bring it up like he said.

AND...AND he said he pulled out of a gas station...then seconds later his bike did a flip on the highway. Where on earth is there a gas station on a highway?

I...CALL...BULLSHIT!

And no pics...loser :infrandom
