I was traveling home from Bunbury tonight and saw
A Red R1 down on Safety Bay road and Mandurha Rd
roundabout at 12.30am with a heap of cops around him.
1 patrol car
1 Highway patrol
3 or 4 cop bikes
1 Ambo

Rider was sitting up and looked ok,
but not the way he would have wanted to end the chase.

Cheers
Greenie

just because you buy an R1, doesn't give you the right to RIDE an R1

Honda's, Kwakka's, Yammies.. Zookies..

All make the same sparks when you drop em.. who cares ? <_< :D

Edit: Aparently Hyodung&#39;s dont tho - because they use plastic composite.. and the only time my lawnmower sparks is when it hits the kerb..

Honda and Yamaha would have to head most statistics wouldn&#39;t they??? The others don&#39;t come close in sales.

JAN-JUN 2006 figures
Honda 13,141
Yamaha 11,664
Suzuki 6593
Kawasaki 4554
Harley-Davidson 2570
KTM 2456

No, I am not arguing they are better.... but those accident figures wouldn&#39;t take sales of particular brands into account so they dont really say anything much about the actual bikes.

IMO it would make sense to look at age vs type of bike (eg. cruiser, sportsbikes, etc).

nice try, but statistics mean nothing without qualifying data. i.e. types of bikes, number of bikes in the market place. average k&#39;s travelled.

its the same reason postie bikes are removed from all bike sales stats.

p.s. don&#39;t take it too seriously, we all know ducati riders are the most likely to crash.

hey Tim , did you drop off my flame proof suit.

Out of the four bikes where I work, 3 are kwaka&#39;s, the one non-Kwaka... well that got dropped a while back.... none of the Kwaka&#39;s have been dropped (touch wood)...

Oh yer the non-kwaka is an R1, and yer it was dropped on a corner, lol. :lol: :lol:

And the rider isn&#39;t a squid either. :thumbsup:

Do you thing that might be due to how difficult it can be to ride a Kwaka fast and corner?? :yes:

Just kidding. I really wanted a ZX10 untill I rode the Honda.

Very very nice misinformation there mate. Top work in not telling them of the loaner bike you binned while yours was in for service.

Yeah, but that wasn&#39;t my Hyo, it was a Honda.

And secondly, it was a hit and run. Kinda not my fault methinks.
