yep. i laid it down. bad. i was going about 80 down highway 18 in federal way (WA) before the 167 interchange (the hill) and i hit gravel on the shoulder around the bend, and ended up in the side barrier. bike slid about 1/4 mile, and hit the cement barriers 3 times. i only hit once, but didn't have leathers on, so i took up a good bit of road rash. oh well, that just means i have to wait a few months to wait before i can ride again. you ever hear that everyone who wrecks their bike runs after the bike, instead of checking to see if they are ok?... i was just truckin down the highway after it... anyways, my story for the day. i am about to go to yamaha and get it estimated.
