my friend just took the motorcycle safety course and failed(lmao) he said he was breaking through turns and couldnt stop quick enough he had to stop within 9 feet and stoped at 16 feet ( going max 20mph in a closed parking lot) so today i let him take my 2000 bandit600 out w me to work out the tweeks and he grabed the front break after i just told him to never break in a turn if you have to put your feet down and clutch it through well he ended up hitting the front break going about 10mph and next thing i know i watched my bandit wobble and then slide down the road. i then told him dude you just bought it 1800$ next weekend i want it out of here the bad thing is is his dad is buying it for him and i hope i get what im asking this sux if you ever let a friend use your bike have frame sliders

Ya it sucks being the bad guy sometimes but I always so no, no matter what. I crashed a friends dirt bike when I was younger and had to buy him a new exhaust. I paid for it and fixed it but from then on I swore to myself I would never ride someone else's bike and they would never ride mine. Its a hard lesson.

DUDE!! Failing the MSF should have been a big a$$ red flag! I aced every part of mine except the emergency braking, I didn't stopped soon enough. But I still passed with a 98! You really have to be off your game to fail. Sorry about your bike though.

I gotta say the whole thing is your fault. You knew he couldn't ride (he failed the MSF! Do you know how hard it is to do that?!), but you let him ride anyway. You gave him some nonsensical advice on how to corner and, not surprisingly, he tossed your bike down the street. What did you think was going to happen?

ummm, uhhhh, hu hu... that about sums it up... :banghead:

at least you didn't learn that lesson with your 6! so guess that's the silver lining in this unfortunate event.
