Kito - saying Good bye
« on: August 21, 2019, 01:23:37 PM »
I tought the GStwins was gone for good... thank god is now Back!

Last week I crashed my GS in a car that made a forbidden U-turn... I am ok.. with my balls aching a little bit and some pain in my back!

However, I came here to thanks you all for incredible help.. I learned a LOT with you! LOT!

Now I plan to go with a more track oriented bike (small one),

And maybe in a future buy another GS who Knows!

Thank you guys

You don't have to go, necessarily.

I haven't had a GS in...  6 years?

Apparently I can't take a hint.

Indeed thats was the plan for my wrecked Gs... I was supposed to track day her  in this next Sunday...

I had some troubles with the GS on track.. most related to ground clearance and suspension... (and was ok for me)  but I feel that perhaps with a newer bike.. will be more easy to find parts and cheaper too.

Let's see..  ;)

Not to mention those painful balls!   OK, back to G-rated conversation...

Hoping to take my own GS to the track for the first time soon.

Kito, stay on this forum!  So many great folks, advice, and random discussions  :cheers:

I hope the GS did some damage to the car on its way out.
Glad you are mostly ok too! Sounds like you came out pretty good for having a collision with a car.

Sudden illegal u turns suck big time. I came close to being collected last week, the gf ran smack into someone doing an illegal u turn over a painted median strip. A friend got killed simply walking across a quiet road  to a sudden, but not illegal u turn. Just another one of the hazards to keep us all sharp as we play the real life bike video game, daily.
