I keep reading about people crashing. Just out of curiosity I want to know how many people have crashed and when.

A couple of small low speed crashes in my 17 yrs. riding on the street. Unless you want to talk dirt and then it's another story... ;)

I had two incidents in three rides.

#1 Cold day, pulling out of my dorm parking lot going to work, rear met the front end in a low speed left hand turn. totaled the R6 because of other scratches and whatnot.

#2 Riding an 04 R6 with over 6 other people, one being a good friend. The new riders were weeded out when they couldnt keep up. I got tired of being behind a slower rider on an orange and black trbal flame 600rr, so I passed him. Good thing too, I picked up a concrete stake in my rear, let all my air out the guy on the 600rr could witness me wreck. He said I hit the brakes, then he blinked and there was my bike flipping through the air and god knows what I did. From the looks of the helmet I slid on my face. They found me 60 feet from the road, 1 foot from a concrete covert and next to a street sign passed out. I was in ICU for two days, and my own room for another day before they let me go. I couldn't bend my knee for over a month, I had to support my head when leaning back, and my shoulder had a mild seperation. I had no broken bones, just got my noggen smashed around. The R6 had a brand new nose, brand new left crank case cover and brand new left clip-on. All trashed. It was reduced to a rolling chasis and an engine. I picked up the 05 636 before I could get back on a bike. The guy leading was on an 04 GSXR 1K, he has since sold both his bikes, my friend was riding a 04 cbr1Krr, he debates selling his claiming the thrill of riding has be lost since my accident. I keep on riding everyday and have put 3000 miles on the 636

I crashed a few times last year on the track with the racebike, none so far this year.

Only road crash was in 2004, herniated disc and bruising.

Have yet to crash a road bike, but low-sided a moped doing 30mph as a kid. Familiar with road rash, and put a YZ80 through a tree as well. Ahhhh the good ol' days.

Does skateboarding with the 100 plus pound dog count? Damn palm frond in the street.
I was probably going about 15 mph. This was saturday.

Get those skateboarding kids of yours to wear gloves!

Feels like I'm a kid again with some roadrash...

That's pathetic, you need to find a new buddy. :mrgreen:
:+1:

At least you got your stuff back, it's always a hassle going to the DMV and getting all your credit cards...I don't really care about the cash, it's just a hassle to lose a wallet.
