Its too bad im a first time poster but just lost my '03 RR, Acctually i just got home from a six day stay at a local hospital.. Let me start off with the bike.. Yup it was my 1st bike, i took over payments from my older bro in 2003, the bike was just a month old (April '03).. I picked up riding quick, my 3rd time on a bike ever my bro took me to HWY 9, its a local road with milles and miles of twisties (in the santa cruz Cali mountians).. **** ill admit i was scared!! especially when the revvs went over 12K, i was scared but fell in love at feeling of the bike and especially the sound and handling.. I was hooked on ridding. . THEN came the stunting.. always rolled with my homies (4 riders usually).. I could say i picked that up quick too.. just 6 months after i got the bike i was already doing wheelies stand up and sitting down, Indo's, i got too brave on that bike too soon.. but nothing happend to me till this year, cause i dont who u are u will go down for a first time, (oct '04) i was on my way 2 school i ran into a '04 ZX6R.. we went light to light stunting.. at aroun a mile and ahalf of stunting at the 3rd light i get it up like i usually do on second gear about 40mph? the i came down.... and the RR wobbled and BAM i see stars*********** Fracturerd neck, broken knee, and lots and lots of road rash... i coulda been paralized from neck down, **** that was crazy.... moral of the story dont stunt RR's keep those green machines for the track.. and hell ya ill get an other Kawi... ZX10R coming soon..
