Just thought I would let you guys know about my moment of stupidity today. I was buzzing around the paved back yard of my work today on next years RZ350 race bike, I was warming up and giving some throttle up and down the lot. The next part is a blur but I remember wacking on the throttle and pulling a killer but controled wheelie, the wheelie wasn't the problem, it was the return to earth that was the problem. All I remember is hitting the ground and sliding on my back for about 20 feet, I was sliding in my button up work shirt and my good jeans and shoes!! The bike slid for about the same distance coming to a stop next to me on the ground. I consider myself lucky as I only have minor road rash on my elbow and a sore hip. My work clothes are destroyed!!! As for the bike, these RZ's crash really good! I maybe did about $60.00 damage, I bent the left clip on, broke the clutch lever, and bent the shifter peddle. Everything else is untouched!!
The moral of this story is that I was a complete moron by goofing around at work and especially trying to wheelie a bike with obvious wet patches on the pavement!!!
Damn my work mates were laughing there ass's off!
Ps. This is not me but it is kinda what I felt like!!!
