Hello,

My name is Danny and I'm a long time lurker of this forum, probably since 2014ish.

I'm currently just picked up my 3rd RR.
1st one was a 2013 that I had for a total of 2 months or so before I had a big accident.
2nd one was a 2016 that I sold a couple weeks ago because it was nearing 50k miles, flawless bike for me at least.
Was taken out by a car on my 2018 R1 about 6 months ago, but I'm back at it again.

Planned on getting another 15/16 but I figured why not get onto the newer chassis?

Just picked up a 2022 yesterday and I'm just trying to get my break-in miles done so I can open her up and throw the Arrow full exhaust and Bren Stage 1 on her.

I'm located in Southern California (San Gabriel Valley); and just hoping that I can maybe give my insight on some things and maybe some knowledge in order to give back because I've learned a hell of a lot from all of you all over this forum over the years. (I don't know much, I just really love to ride)

Attached is a picture of my 16, and one of my 22.

Cheers and be safe!

-Danny

Welcome man. Good looking bikes. Closing in on 40k miles on my 16 by next week. You healed up that fast from a car taking you out to hop on another bike?

Well, my foot made a real bad impact with a trailer. (First impact basically caused me to be frogged on the freeway, bounced off 3 different vehicles) Doctor treated it like a crush injury with 3 fractures. I was basically immobile for awhile and just hopped on one foot. Accident happened late November but once I was able to walk again I said screw it and got back on my 16 again. My foot still aches, but I think the boots help with some stability in my ankle. Actually hurts less to ride than it does to drive a car for a long period of time, (maybe something to do with blood flow?).

I hope the pain goes away eventually and I’m back to 100% but I don’t want to give my hopes up and I think I’ll always have to ride as part of my sanity.

Hi Danny and welcome back! I’m sorry to hear that and at least it’s your foot not hip or back! A friend of mine had an accident hitting a truck where he fill on his back after flying in the air while wearing backpack and landed on his back! Broken back in two spots, did a surgery and currently recovering. I don’t think he’ll be able to ride a sports bike anymore. Maybe a GS or a cruiser! Who knows! Ride safe and keep your eyes always scanning the roads. Remember, you are riding to enjoy the ride. If you wanna go wild, hit a track. GOD bless you

Thanks for the warm welcome and I hope your friend is able to quickly recover completely!
