Josh and I went riding with jen to the Hacienda for brunch when she had her ZZR 600. It was her first bike and more than she could handle. She had trouble doing 55 on it. Fast forward 2 months later, she shows up at Moto Cafe with a new 08 ZX10. I pulled her aside and told her. I am not saying this to be mean, but what the hell are you thinking? She said the ZZR wasn't fast enough and that the zx6 wouldn't be fast enough so she go the 10.

I told her that she was crazy and that as much as I care, I would not go and visit her in the hospital. She has dropped the bike quite a few times, and now this!!

Sometimes I wish I could just not give a shit! Well hopefully she will learn from this. We can only hope!

Yea, I've ridden with her plenty! She seemed to keep things slow in the twisties, ref: "Da spot"

But now a days a modern sportbike will inspire confidence within a rider, probably more than the rider is capable of actually performing at.

true dat

I hate to see her crash... but it is all part of the learning curve...

I hope she gets back out there and rides on...

I dont think any less of her since she crashed I just hate to see it happen to a new rider who might get put off by crashing and not ride any more...

I never understood why she went with a 10. That is more bike than I want to deal with and I have alot more miles under my belt. She should have stuck to the ZZR. Still not sure how she thought a 600 wasn't fast enough.

You are absolutely incorrect. When people make poor decisions and suffer the obvious consequences, you need to point out the failure in judgment. We are talking about peoples lives here. You can't worry about hurting their feelings. When you go down you will hurt a lot more than your feelings.

There is also a much higher probability that they will take someone else out at the same time. In situations like this you have to make the hard decision whether you want to help the person or just be an enabler.

I am not saying to yell at someone, that is not accepted well. But pointing out the obvious in order to try and save someone's life is always a better choice.

And she would have probably fallen on a 600, a 250, or a 125 for that matter. Being on a liter bike is not was caused this accident. So to say "I warned her that a liter bike is too much" is like saying "The sky is blue", it doesn't even apply to the situation at hand.

So don't flame so much, unless it's lighting a hookah!

Instead why not just say "shouldn't have been going to fast around blind corners"

You are FAR more likely to go down on a bike that you cannot control than on a 250. You should know that. Plus when you go down on a 10 it is usually at a higher speed and is on a heavier bike.

Flame job here...100% justified!
