well my buddy went down in front of me on the intersate last night at ~ 130 on his gixxer 1000. i have tried to get him to use the clutch and rear brake and SLOW DOWN but he insists that he has all the control he needs in his right hand. yeah right. hes alright, couple broken fingers, couple broken toes, and lots of rash. helmet saved his life for sure. wish i had some video footage it was a horrific crash bike was flipping like 10 feet in the air maybe higher. just be safe guys wear your gear when all the time!!! if not always at least when you hit the streets. and USE THE DAMN REAR BRAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!
