so my buddy totalled his bike sunday, picked it up from the impound yesterday. to the untrained eye i dont think most could identify its make... he made it off easy, broken hand, lots of scrapes, 14 stitches. some dip $hit ran a light on SR520 in merrit island, he said he caught the passenger door at 45 mph. it broke the steering head clean off! hes awaiting insurance money and wants a new R1, this bike is only 5 months old. glad hes ok and ready to get back at it.

in his words R.I.P. GSX-R

Damn it looks like it could have been worse. At least he isn't badly hurt.

glad he is ok! Looks like a Gixxer 600 or 750. I'd be sueing the bitch that ran the light, and get two bikes! [:p][:p]

yeah the car stopped, i quess after the bike hit the door it stuck its head in the window and stayed. the car couldn't run with a bike hangin off the side. i guess they're going to try to settle out of court for bike replacement and medical bills. sounds like the guy in the car is pretty loaded and was sorry that he ran the light, i guess he doesn't want a court battle...

its funny that you said that Uncle Ben, he said the same thing right after he dad snapped this picture. lol

glad your buddy didn't bear the brunt of it. sue the bastard. let this be a lesson that even though you have a green light, you still got to look both ways before you proceed through the intersection. they are way too many careless people running red lights nowadays.

what kind of gixxer was it, and tell him to part it out before he turns it over to the insurance
