so i was cruising around on my buddies R1 on wed going south on unser. i was going about 40 to 45 mph and all of a sudden the car in the lane to the left of me comes into my lane. so i swerve to the right just missing the side curb and in the bike lane then i see there is a turn lane coming up in 10 feet or so so i tap brake and did a small endo(so a bystander says) and then nail the curb straight on. i flew and rolled about 10 to 15 feet and have pretty bad hand arm and leg road rash. i got about 20 stitches but the dome peice is all good!! :yesnod: here are some pics. o and by the way the lady or guy kept driving. i am not sure if he/she saw me at all or they did and just booked it. not sure what do people think i should do. call ron bell? let me know what you think here are pics

WTF you had to have been going more than 45 i went down about a month ago at about 50 to 60 and slid well over 100yards and all i got was a tiny little bit of rash i was wearing a helmet t shirt pants and boots no leathers and no gloves, we were supposed to be doing slow stunting that's why i was not wearing the leather

A leather jacket and a helmet and you wouldnt of needed an ambulance. Just an explanation to your friend. Never ride a bike without gear, Ive gone down at 50mph and at 75mph and luckily the gear I had let tumble then make the next track day session at the track.
Sorry you had to learn the hard way. Asphalt is very unforgiving.

As said before, Asphalt is extremely unforgiving. Really glad you survived this incident and I assume you were at least wearing a helmet. I wanted to shoot a different cager everytime I road back when I had a bike. You always have to be the most defensive driver possible.

Damn!

I am one of those guys that says, "I'm just going down the street, I won't need a helmet, Jacket or boots." This has never happened to me. I hope it never does. I'm glad you're okay. Thank you for sharing. I am going to make it a point to try to remember this the next time I jump on a bike.

yeah definetly learned a lesson. too late tro turn around now but shit happens. glad i could be an example for you vega lol. but really never say never. i have learned that before but never to this extent. you dont ever want to learn this way either very very painful for sure. and yeah assphalt is gay lol they should make it like rubberized or sum shit lol.

im makin a pretty good recovery though. my hands are getting better now. my back is scabbbing over and it is very painful to move because the scabs crack but its the only way. everything else is healing slowly. should be a good 2 weeks before i am able to be active again. i should be able to still make it to the sunday the 2nd meet though wouldnt miss that!!

Dude holy shit...wow. As soon as I heard Aldrin got an R1 I was like "that ain't gonna last long" Because how he wrecked joe's bike. But your the one that laid it down? Shitty bro. I'm glad your ok Kyle. No more riding without gear I bet huh? And what a dick cop! It could have been much worse, so consider yourself lucky!
