Argh, hard lines. Sounds like you're uninjured though, main thing and all that.
Would hope so, bit too fast around the corner it seems.
Shame, such an awesome bike
At least he's ok!
As long as your ok thats all that matters.
But, hope its taught you a lesson. My accident in a car when i first passed made me a much better driver/rider on the road. I still have 'fun' but only when its 110% safe to do so. Sounds like you took a blind corner too fast. Even i know thats a schoolboy error and ive only been riding 2 years!
Hope your well soon and sort the bike out.
Hope your OK gutted for you
Too sore to look at the bike yet so I'm bed bound.
a lot of parts need replacing, hopefully my relationship with each carbon manufacturer will help in securing cheaper replacements.
Engine casings smashed, so need to drain the engine and flush it, quickshifters smashed and much more. I'll report back when I can.
Grim. Are you going to restore it back to how it was, or to a lower spec (no quickshifters etc)
Same, if not better.
Glad to hear your OK bud.
Thats the attitude mate, gws yeah.
Holy crap – how did I miss this thread update!
Came here to ask Yoshimitsu a good place to get decals, and find that he’s had an off
Unlucky fella, but at least it’s one to walk away from, and at least the bike can be fixed – although it had too much carbon (imo), it was still an awesome job you did with it, it sad to see it in that state now…
Get well soon
sorry to hear this - get well soon and hope you get the bike mended without breaking the bank too much.
sorry to hear this one of the best modded bikes ever seen as well! glad your ok though thats the main thing!
Well, I'm still paying off the wheels, so the bike hasn't been touched as of yet, pointless anyway as the weathers taken a turn for the worse anyway, so no point bodging it together to get it roadworthy.
Time for a bit of damage control.
Parts to be replaced.
Hoping to god Gibbo from GJ's can fix this.
I think upon seeing the Carbon Wheel's damaged I would have cried
Really gutted for you Yoshimitsu (best character in Tekken btw!), but at least you're ok, all those bits [whilst bloody expensive] can be replaced
Here's hoping you get it all sorted!
Made a start today, as you can see stripped it all down to assess it.
Big thankyou to Saint Matt for coming round with a Tri-Arm flywheel puller that he "Modified" to fit. Proper **** me up when it popped off :lmfao: So managed to refit the new one.
Didn't need to replace it.
But may as well while I'm here lol
Now, I may as well throw all my scratched carbon on the bay and see how much it fetch's, may as well **** the stock wheels off too.
Sorry to hear about the off.
Some people in motors warned you about some of the videos you were showing off in, You better hope they don't see this thread
**** happens, I don't care, as soon as that front wheels fixed I'll be back riding like a **** lol
Maybe not for a while though.....
