Have you ever wrecked or crashed?

Your fault or not, have you had the misfortune?

I had a minor get off the very first time I rode my bike. It was a slow U-turn, target fixation on a curb, and over the bars into the grass. That was the ZX-6E back in 04.

I did have a close call yesterday morning though. I took an exit ramp that I look forward to every morning enroute to work. Well, its was like 39 yesterday morning and the back end slipped out on me. Yeah I know, cold tires and attempting my Rossi/Mladin impersonation, lesson learned.

Pulled a rookie mistake on my 02 ninja zx6r. Saw that I was going to fast around a corner so I stood it up and went right off the road. I slid pretty good and got some good road rash. 1500 dollars worth of damage

Any of you guys played football? I know that in both Rugby league and Aust Rules, the mantra is "if you go in hard, you won't get hurt, it's only when you go in half arsed that you tend to get hurt"

Same on bikes. I crashed at Eastern Creek not long back because I panicked going into a corner hard, tried to stand it up, and whammo! Seems every time I've crashed, it's been because I was riding hard, and then tried to "uncommit"

The answer to your question is "Yes, Lots!!!"

I've kissed pavement. I was coming up on a turn and as I got closer I saw a big patch of sand. Panicked and hit the brake while trying to turn anyway. Wow the bike slid out from under me so fast, I blinked and I was on my duff.

I had a major one! I T-boned a car in an intersection. Bike was totaled, front forks were ripped off the frame. I came out very good. Just minor road rash. I saw the guy coming thru the intersection and I locke up my rear tire. Then relaized nothing I could do so me and the bike parted differnet ways. To say the bike lost and I went sliding down the road about 75 feet.
