My First Motorcycle Crash !!! ($h!t finally caught up to me)
They tell me if you ride, it's not a matter of if, but when you crash. Well, after a little over 2 years of riding and some 5 track days later, it finally happened to me. =P I'm glad I was "let down easy" for a first crash and that it took placed on a track. Both bike and me ended up coming to a stop off the track so there was little risk of getting ran over from the guys behind. No injuries to myself. Some scuff on leathers. Bike's sliders took the bulk of the damage. Left clip-on bar needs replacement, shifter peg sheared off, shift linkage bent, some rear body work damage aw well as rear passenger foot peg mount. Got to get it back running for another track day in 2 weeks time. Same track.

Yamaha R1 As a First Bike - Short Man Learning How To Ride His First Motorcycle Yamaha YZF-R1
Is Yamaha R1 good as a first bike? Just check this video out! He has never ridden any motorcycle in his entire life. This was filmed the next day after he brought the bike home, and must say the progress was huge as for only one day. Since then he rides with us whenever he can. He got his gear few days later so please don't hate for no gear. We always ride geared up and we don't let others ride with us if they don't have proper protection. He still needs some time to gain experience, which is needed to ride motorcycle reliably. Yamaha R1 is good as a first motorcycle until you are not an idiot and you don't ride hard without experience. I just uploaded video response to this video. http://youtu.be/kXAMH4RX6hw He rides so much better and is getting very good on the corners. Click the link to watch it http://youtu.be/kXAMH4RX6hw
