O.K. Here's the story,
Steve and I are screaming up the tripple nickel doing about 70 into a 20 M.P.H. blind right hander. Steve is trail braking hard into the corner, he gets to the apex and there's a semi parked sideways across the road. He spins the back wheel lays the bike down on its right side and slides under the trailer between the fifth wheel and the back tires.
Bike has minor right side damage, Steves right ankle look grim.

I'm guessing his underwear looks worse.

Lets be a little more careful out there.

Caution? What the heck is caution? Everybody out here who is riding mach one with his hair on fire has cast caution to the wind, miles ago. You've obviously never rode with these two crazy's!!!!!! Take it from a guy's who'se screen name is "Scrapedup" crash's are a when factor rather an if ever factor.


That is of course IMHO!
