My father in law didn't make the turn. He got hurt but he's okay now. Insurance totaled the bike and I bought it back and fixed it myself.
I love the flat blackness! I know the ex has to be your baby, after all the time spent fixing it, but how often do you ride it? Does it feel funny jumping off the zx and hopping on the 500? I rode my buddy's 500 just after getting off my zzr and its was a whole different world (slower, upright, loose, rough, but still fun). I would love to get one for the wife.
