Default Man Down...

Sunday, I was out riding and was doing some sick wheelies, I was working on my shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was at my balance point and went to shift and my tail hit the concrete and my bike went out from under me. The front end is all torn up and the tail is gone, my frame sliders saved most of it the fairings but its still torn up, it saved the engine from sliding on the concrete.

I have dislocated my left shoulder, it was a good thing I was wearing full body armor,otherwise they would have been peeling me off the concrete.

So now, I have filed a claim with my insurance, I have full coverage. So now I am debating to fix my bike or get a RR 600 or step up to a 1000RR. What would you guys do?

Turn it into a stunt bike based on your shenanigans.

Yeah, that would get my vote, too. Put a stunt cage on it and keep it that way. Get good at wheelies.

Not sure I'd bother with the insurance claim. If you do, it may be your last chance at buying any affordable insurance.

^ I plan on doing that in a few years. Just buying a 1000rr and leaving it stock, for track days, and daily riding, but then taking my f4i and turning it into a "spirited driving machine'' that can drop without worry.

Lesson learned.. Start your wheelies in second gear.. The F4i can easily do it! =)
