well, we hit up some twisties today; unfortunately a friend of ours dumped (low-sided) his ducati 748 baliff (sp?) replica.  It wouldn't have been that bad except a tree picked the bike up and body slammed it into the field...better the bike than him.  He's scratched and bruised but no serious injuries thank goodness.  I was right behind him when it happened .....

another friend of ours dumped his '03-R6 a month or two ago...i was right behind him when it happend as well....i'm starting to think i'm cursing the man riding in front of me  :-/

i know you guys want the pix so here they are:

My heart sunk when I looked at those pictures. That was one sweet looking ride before the low-side. I'll bet he is still crying just from looking at that crashed bike. Glad to hear he is ok, which is the important thing.

Glory,

I've heard it's often the case that the rider behind the crasher will fixate on the accident and follow into the weeds, so it's good that you have been able to keep your concentration where it belongs. If you haven't done so, you might consider taking a first aid- CPR class.....

There's a great editorial on smooth, fast, safe street riding in this month's SPORT RIDER. I think it says alot about keeping the rubber side down and purposely staying a step this side of the edge. That takes experience, maturity and discretion.

Not passing judgement - it's just that I've seen too many folded up motorcycles (and folded up bodies) in 15 years of public safety work. By far and away, rider error is the usual suspect (despite what you might think, i.e. cages turning left for instance).

Anyway, glad to hear everyone's alright.
