yesterday morning i was riding around this abandoned city park, has some really great hills, good place to get some air, well got too much air, my brother was watching me and said i was about 15 feet up, came down hit another little jump, went about 6 feet up,.... not enough runout and slammed into this two foot cobblestone wall sideways... knocked the wind out of me, bike flipped over me, i flipped over bike, we were both in a bad way,, my brother rushed me to the hospital and they xrayed me and did what they do... turned out i'm ok everybody called me very lucky, and i agreed,, all hopped up on the oxycodone now, scored a day off work!!..... got some pics of the bike... i'll figure out how to get them on here

Wish my tricked out XR650R could get fifteen feet of air!!!!:thumbsup: Even with it's tricked out suspension and being fifty pounds lighter then the "L" it would break. My house is just about fifteen feet high at the top of the roof! 6 feet from the bottom of the tires would break something:eek:

that's a ruthless gouge.

sorry. glad you're mostly okay though.

Check it out. this is a bulletin board.

wen you look t your photo in photo bucket there are three things you can cut and paste. One is just what you did. It's just the web address of the picture.

The second one is HTML and you can use that code to directly insert pictures on your webpage/skankspace/etc... the third one is Bb code, for use on forums like this it has img tags in front and behind, wrapped in these [

if you copoy that one, and paste it in your post, the images will be directly in your post like this

Do you have full coverage insurance? If so this would have been a good time to make a claim and get everything done at the shop for the cost of your deductable. All those little dings here and there are not a big deal now but I would think twice about that bike if I was looking at buying it used.

Break something on you or the bike? I've gotten 15 of air on my pig before, you just have to find the 'right' jump... :thumbsup:

Man o man...listening to you guys with the newer-style pigs getting 15 ft. of air makes me shudder in my shorts :ride: ....I'd hate to see and hear what my stocker '83 XL6 would be like after 15 ft. of air in ANY fashion! LOLOLOL!!!

The new-skool suspensions are SO much nicer, I've ridden them...my bud has an '01 XR650R...but that would get me into SO much trouble....

yes it would, yes it would.... these bikes aren't built for putting around on, they crave beatings... and when you start beating on an xrr, things can get pretty unruly...VERY quickly! GET ONE!! NOW!!! LOL!!

Truth to tell {looks furtively over shoulder}, I've been kinda looking to see how much my original stock '83 xl600r (registered on road and off) would fetch, because I'm seeing a '93 xr650l on Craigslist right now for $1500 that appears to be in decent shape...I like the brute force of the '83, but at the same time, moving up 10 years (suspension-wise) and getting an electric start would mean a lot right now...
