Shouldve just wheelied over the crest

"The ZX-10R is capable of being perfectly docile and tractable, but few men are capable of resisting its ever-present voice urging them to just twist it and see what happens."

If you're lowered, you don't want the weakest part of the oil pan hanging straight down to clip a bump and get broken.
