i've had 2 bad wrecks. 1 at over 85 mph one at 70 neither of my bikes looked that bad. i walked away from both. fixed both bikes and rode the first for 8 more years and the 2nd for3 1/2 years. surely you were hurt. was there a driveway there or what? z is way different than you r6 gobs of instant throttle way fun. be careful and ride safe.:eek::eek::eek:

in jan 04 was riding and decided to do one more wheelie before i put her up. dropped grandson in driveway. went out in front of the house. rolled it up in first gear was up good when it hit power was nearly at rev limiter standing straight up foot wasn't near brake couldn't let go was holding on for dear life finally pushed the bike away from me and went sliding down thw road watching my 6 month old bike tunble down the road would have totaled it if it hadn't landed in in the muddy ditch. the bike didn't run that good the week before. it just surprised me. fixed it myself and road it another 25,000 miles. took out the front wheel and tire, fenderhandlebars, , levers, mirrors, exhaust, blinkers, taillight,footpegs, tweaked forks dented gas tank scraped fairing, tail and engine cases. nothing serious. i still hurt. my thought was you shouldn't have done this.new bike is easy to ride to rev limiter in first, can't shift to 2nd in the air yet. but has been really cold here. low 20's and teens sometimes. not as tough as i once was.
