Sucks , glad he is ok. Good thing you didnt plow into the back of him , could have been alot worse
It does have some sort of touring tires, not street at all. And it wasnt any sort of race or competition, nor was he in front - just a casual ride with 4 of us friends through the canyons. I personally didnt want to be up front holding 2 of the guys back that didnt have passengers with them at the time.Mouse said:That Ninja should be great in the canyons. OK, so he scraped a peg, but he still passed ya. Ok, so the RR would have given it a hard time, but the 1000 should have been out done by the three of ya. I thought those 500's kicked ass, what tyres did he have on it, i see allot about with touring tyres.
lol, id agree to that first part - not the second though, the 500 is good for him, not just because he's short, i really dont think he could handle even a 600, he was just trying to keep up with the 1000 and 600 ahead, he was 1 of 2 without a passenger.thats not a bike... you said his bike is messed up.
Glad hes ok, but it sounds like he out grew that 500 a while ago, if hes up front scraping pegs.
sorry to hear that dude, start a new thread & take some pics, show your battle scars with pride (or shame).pjochoa2006 said:glad he is okay....yesturday sucked i went down also...will be adding a post soon....
Jeans will last for about a 10 foot slide. Textile about 30 feet. Leather 60+.cojolio said:i just started riding, hope WHEN (*NOT* if) i go down is not too bad...i wear my gear except for pants.. i just wear jeans...
+1, also i will consider going for the leather.snikwad said:trust me, jeans wont even make it 10ft in a slide.
There are some nice affordable textile pants out, definately give em a look.
