    **QUICK!** 600RR Can go down a curb ok?

    There's a god damn gas leak near BCIT where I work and I can't get out to go home unless I ride my 600RR down an easy dirt trail to the adjacent road. Thing is, is I would have to go down a curb.

    Do you think there's enough clearance?

    Thanks!

    Find a block or 2x4 to make the drop less severe. Good luck.

    Sure there's enough clearance! Give her and launch it off the curb.

    it's black
    wheelie off the curb. That solves everything. Just make sure a buddy isn't filming it for Youtube.

    I am sure that with some speed it would be fine. I have used a 2x4 as well in a pinch

    Put a BCStuntah sticker on your bike and ride down the sidewalk. It's what everyone else is doing apparently
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    They are saying that it should be cleared in 30 min or so, so it shouldn't be a problem. Whew!

    I thought it would have been a few more hours at least!

    Thanks for all of your quick replies. I wish I could wheelie the bike down but I'd probably drop the bike considering I've never done one before.

    so you're saying that if I put that sticker on my bike I will be able to wheelie?

    At least I'd have the power to ride down a sidewalk.

    I would've given it a shot anyway...but I suppose if your fairings are pretty, rubbing them on a curb could be worrisome

    with enough speed and a solid blast-ramp, any obstacle can be cleared

    Castro, where do you work? I'm also in lockdown mode, with my bike here at work (Canada Way). Can I borrow your 2x4? ;-)

    There's a certain main gas line that had a certain flange that had certain duct tape on it at BCIT... can it be?

    It runs...
    Ditto. Dropping off a curb is no problem. Just make sure your ride is as perpendicular to the curb as possible, and do it quickly (drop it in gear and give it gas)... The worst thing you can do is try to 'baby' it down. All you'll end up doing is losing your balance and having a tip over.

    I've gone off "regular" curbs on my CBR125 and R6 - no issues. Of course it's preferable to find another way down, but when you got no choice... go for it.
