my friend was all righ.... he just has a TINNY patch of rode rash on his arm (and a hole in his sweatshirt lol)


:bash:

its all good though .... he likes it and might get one soon lol he was doing real good ...... he tired to open it up a lil and hit about 50 and said it was cool then he went to turn around and come back to were i was and hit some dirt or something and plow over the bike went :sob:



only thing i am bummed about is i cant ride very good b/c no shifter......just the actual pice were your foot goes on broke so it is ridable just not to fun :lol: :lol: :lol: oh well i thiought i would share that

That sucks big time. I hope you learn a lesson from this painful experience. Only my best friends get to sit on my bike knowing that they'll pay for hundreds of dollars of damages if they drop it but absolutely NOBODY rides my bike. Don't forget to check your frame slider bolt too because it could be bent/stripped even at low speed slides.

btw, what bike do you ride?

Ouch, tough luck bull. Hope the damage is minimal, which sounds like it is.

If a friend of mine hands me the keys to his bike I'll hand him the keys to mine... but that's about it.

See my "Doh!" thread, about letting people ride your bike. You're getting off cheap, I myself may need a new front rotor. :cursin:

Fix it all up like it was before and send him the bill!!!! He wants to ride he takes the same financial risk as you do right... so buy some sato rearsets! :thumbs:

You learned a valuable lesson here...You don't let anyone ride your bike, your girl or borrow your tools, unless you get theirs...

That sucks man. I won't let anyone that I know who "thinks they can ride" ride my bike. I won't even ride theirs. The guy I know that races wants to ride the R6 and I told him NO way! I think he got offended thinking that I insulted his riding abilities. :scratch:

:nonod: Get it fixed. Go riding. Never let anyone ride it unless they are going to pay for damage.

Lesson well learned for the next time.... I had that happen a long time ago on a different bike of mine, and thats precisely why nobody rides my bike except me.

Only 2 people get to ride my $$$$$ bikes.
That's because I know they will take care of any damage if needed.
They let me ride their bikes as well and expect the same from me. :2cents:

I do on accession let others that I know ride the lesser value bikes if I know they can ride. :crazy:
I still expect the same reasonability from them also but, could live with it if I was never to get paid.
I can find other methods of payment. :bthorse:
