hey! got some BAD news. On Nov 8 here in Tally a car pulled out in front of me. I barely had ANY time to react, just enough to lay my brand new 1 month old '03 bule ZX-6r down prior to hitting him. I ended up sliding the bike and myself into the side of the car. Completly distroying the bike, breaking my lt scapula, 2 ribs and dislocating and breaking my rt hip. In addition to tons of road rash. I had to have reconstructive surgery on my hip with 5 pins and plate being inserted. I wont be able to walk for about 4 months :-( Not to mention my bike is destroyed. I only had it a month and half, it was brand new with less than a 1K miles on it. Lukely Im alive THANKS to my helmet which I had just got in the Wed before the wreck. I had just bought the new Shoei RF-1000 in the blue Storm graphics. I loved the helmet, great ventalation for the lil amount of time I had it. Well I'll post some pics of my destroyed bike the the accident scence as soon as I can scan them. LESSON LEARNED, WEAR A HELMET (thank god I had mine on) IT SAVED MY LIFE!
