    Been on a group ride lately? I'm pretty sure plenty need a reminder. Regardless, clearly this wasn't a "needed" thread. However seeing the accident scene resonated with me... So I made it. I'm sure you'll get over it.

    Yup, a couple, and people rode just fine, where were you?

    I'm sure you'll get over it too, don't you have another SV motor to blow up?

    For now! Lol Fucker I've only lost one motor ever, and the bike was upside down for a bit at one point, I can't fault it.

    Kyle I don't know what group rides you've been on this year but every ride I've been to, everyone has been geared for the crash.
