Rider Down - Ride within your limits !!!

Coworker of mine wanted to start riding.. so what does he get for his very first bike to learn on? A fully race prepped Duc 919? Ok, yes it was one hell of a deal and yes it WAS a cool looking bike, but he road just a little above his abilities and it bit him on the butt - actually the shoulder. We haven't heard what the extent of the damage to him was (we're thinking broken shoulder or collar bone - or both) and the bike, well lets just say that he's going to be taking it a little easier once he mends.

99 ZRX1100 - tons of mods and still slow but FUN / 07 Yami FZ1 for the wifie.

Did he lock up the front wheel by any chance?

Wish him well when you find out his condition. Gotta agree with TI10, hard lesson. Hope it doesn't put him off riding completely.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

I've seen this bike around. Where'd he end-up eating it?

Damn shame, hope he is ok.
