    R6 killed my Factory!!

    It was only 12 weeks ago I bought my Black 06 Factory, joined the forum, got top tips from other members, spent several 100 s on bits etc etc...Good Times



    Then 2 weeks ago almost to the minute I was out with me mates...2 Mille's and an R6, dry roads, sun out. Car stops in a hurry, I stop, but my mate on his R6 doesn't!! Next thing I know I'm rolling around on the pavement clutching me knackers...Bad Times



    Pics attached...much sadness

    Local Dealer quoted 40 quid shy of 10 grand to put right!! Just heard from assessor today it's a total loss!!
    No doubt there will be bits on fleabay very soon for anyone that's looking!

    The forks and frame weren't checked for trueness but there was nothing wrong with the engine. Subframe and whole tail unit are proper fcuked. Front end pretty banged up where I was shoved into the car in front.

    Brand new 2CT's just fitted 300 miles ago. Wheels look ok and no punctures but no guarantees they weren't damaged.

    Me and me mate got up and walked away from the smash which is what counts!

    YellowRSVR was the third bike and he shat himself when all he could see was R6's exhaust through the bottom of his bellypan11...apparantly he cartwheeled the R6 before it hit me.

    Just as well we were only doing 30!

    Glad to hear you both walked away ffs ...getting body hit with yer mates bike could have been disasterous. Is yer mates insurance all in order? Will you get your bike replaced OK?

    Glad you are both OK, the bike's can be replaced, and gold frames can be disguised
