Went on a ride this Sunday with a large group to Arivaca Road. There was something like 3o bikes in the group. Much larger then I would have liked to ride with. Arivaca Road is a very fun road, twisty with a bunch of elevation changes. It's a road that is not travelled by the police so for us sportbikers it's heaven. We ended up breaking the group up into a few smaller groups for safety reasons. I was in the first group of 5 bikes who I ride with all the time and feel very safe riding with. We got to our destination and had our coffee and snacks. AS the next group pulled up they asked if we saw the guy on the 1000RR crash. YIKES...the only one in the group is a friend of mine Sam, who got his 1000RR a few weeks ago. As it turns out he blew a decreasing radius left hander at around 90mph and totalled his bike :crap: . He has a concusion(sp?) and a broken thumb. That poor 100RR has next to nothing left on its left side. The left clip-on slammed into the frame denting it. There's a big hole in the case, missing all the plastics, and the left head light is destroyed. I didn't have my digi cam to get any pics but it was a sad day for Sam.
