Who in their right mind would even consider rebuilding this pile of bike debris.

Evidently this guy, I think he estimated it would cost him $3000?



Edit: sorry, $3500

Frame
Forks
Brake rotors
1 clip on w/clutch assembly
Radiator and oil cooler
Subframe cage

That's all I need to get back up and running. "That's all" lol.
Then I'll get a new gas tank cowl and bracket then the tank is good.
In time will come; all plastics, signals, stay bracket, gauge (the gauge cluster was detached and I put it by the swing arm while transporting it).
Plus I wouldn't mind having a project with a great prize at the end.

I'm sure there are people who would do what I'm doing.

Ive lost my ability to type---the kids a total 'tard the way he rides, and hes simply proving it by "re-building" that thing.

"ok guys, this will be my first attempt at a rebuild, Ill keep you updated. all it needs is a new frame..."

Can't you religious knuckleheads get together and do something meaningful? You could find a cure for cancer with the amount of time you spend proselytizing.

Sheesh.

This is exactly why when you see bikes that advertise to have a "clean title" is 100% pointless.

Looks to me like he needed a little more practice steering before being out on the road with a motorcycle. He didn't really seem like he was much in control just making ordinary lane shifts way before the crash. In the corner, he turned in too sharp, realized he was on the wrong side of the road, over-corrected to get back in his lane, and couldn't recover enough from the over-correction to make the turn. Did he have a bike license? If so how did he pass the riding test?

Wow. I really don't know what to say other than I really didn't understand how he crashed. It seems like he target fixated and then went into brain lock during the corner. If the angle of the GoPro was any indicator, he sure as heck was not keeping his head up and looking through the corners. When he passed all of those other guys at speed you kind of knew he was going to be a goner.

That being said, I have dumped a couple of times and I wouldn't wish falling on anyone. At least it appeared that he spent coin on a suit and was properly geared up. Imagine how bad it would be if he wasn't.

The idea of fixing that motorcycle is utterly ludicrous - the frame is broken thus it is immediately totalled. He must have minimal insurance or none.

This is brutal. The truth is that we want more people in our sport who will stay in the sport. This benefits all of us. Look at what has happened with the economic downturn / slowdown. We need more riders learning on smaller bikes so that they stay in the sport rather than guys who apparently purchase GSXR1000's as their first bike. This is the last thing we need.

Geezus fuck that dude is stupid-and the people around him to help him pull his shit box are all "moral is crucial here". Thats why I dont ride in groups anymore. Too many fuckheads and I love to have a good nights sleep. He actually thinks he is representing the "Gixxah" name...

Dude said "been to the track everyone crashes". Crashing isn't the problem here. Being a complete douchebag motherfucker is. At least those people that crash at the track had sense enough to "reasonably" push their limits.


yeah I know im late...but I dont live here anymore...lol.
