We all know its not if you go down, its a matter of when you go down. so i was curious to see all of your past motorcycle accidents if you got them. i didnt get the ones the police took at the scene but i was told they took over 250 photos. this is what was left of my 2008 Yamaha R6 after a truck turned in front of me on October 17, 2011. I was left with some road rash and a fractured femur in 3 places. I was wearing a helmet and gloves, but i didnt have a jacket on and i had jeans on. Needless to say, i wear a leather jacket all year round now in Arizona. Be safe and Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up!

Jesus christ, Broken, your name is quite fitting. That looks so sad and painful.
My only accident so far was pretty tame and didn't result in a whole lot of damage. I repaired most of it myself with Bondo. It was a low speed (probably 20-25mph). Tried to gun it into a turn from a stop sign to catch a spot in traffic. Had pretty new tires on as well. I don't think I had gotten them past the initial 100 mile wear in time either. Stupid thing of me. Lost the rear and it slid out from under me. I slid on my back just a bit but you can't tell from my jacket.
The only damage to my jacket was the one elbow. Just glad it wasn't my elbow
Headed to work at the armory so I only these thin ass pants on. Their weird thing was this wasn't the side I went down on.
Only damage to my body on my knee. Something on the bike must have gotten it. It was on the inside of my knee and the scab looked worse than the initial scrape. Haha.
