Wow, another one! :confused: Looks like this might not be an isolated incident after all.

Glad I got my "porky" ole busa. Least the frame is not likely to snap on me while I'm riding around.

Haven't you heard? Bikes are getting so light these days that manufacturers are making throw-away frames! One crash is all they're guaranteed for. You can even send them back to suzuki and they will do an x-ray test on your frame after a get-off to see if there's damage.

they are crazy, he hit the guy only going like 30 mph and the entire front fork/headstem just snapped off from the frame.

maybe if they kept the bikes on the road, the frame's might not break.

as for 30mph, later on he says 45..........what next?

plus he hit another vehicle that was moving as well. you have to factor that into the collision as well.

I remember the first one that broke, on a track if I remember right. It broke right at the weld, which makes sense if QC is'nt up to par. This one broke in the main section of the metal(actually three main sections).......Not a weak spot!!!! Kinda glad I didn't have the money for one five months ago.

Holy shit. It doesnt matter if that was 30, 45, 60mph.... That shit shattered.... That's not supposed to happen....
no, if a bike shatters while riding down the road, it's a prob. shattering while in a wreck is a diff. thing.........

simple fix, don't wreck....... :banana
