Your body faired quite well...you should have seen my 70mph get off back in 1998 ouchies...
Looks like you got about 1000+ in retail damages to the bike. Frame sliders might have helped keep the damage down quite a bit. But then again, it is too late to mention them isn't it?

I am kina torn between framesliders.. They can help and they can do more damage than any good just depends.. I think in this situation they would have helped out a great deal. I will probalby get them this time when I replace the plasics.

Well, I can tell you this about frame sliders, the do well on the concrete but once the bike hits the dirt, no matter if there are framesliders or not, most times the bike goes to flipping and is a total loss anyways. But you are correct, I have seen them do bad things. But I think the good outweighs the bad on them. I have seen a lot of 5mph drops in gravel that cost a lot to fix in which the frame sliders would have helped a great deal. The best crash protection on the bike would be to not ride it. But who in their right mind would do that to a poor lil ol bike. Maybe Tony could answer that question...bwahahahaha tongue.gif Just messing with you Tony.

It pains me to say this but...Brians right :eek: On our trip to Arkansas when going up the pig trail (I think) there are a lot a 10mph u-turns going up and down the mountain. On our ascent Chad, buddy of mine from here, overcooked one of them and low-sided. He has a CBR1000RR w/frame sliders and all he had was a 1-inch scuff on the rightbottom fairing work. To ask Chad those things are the best thing since sliced bread. I would have to agree.

I just got back from the WERA nationals at Barber this weekend (don't be jealous) and every single bike there had frame sliders.

Sliders prolly would have kept my engine case from getting damaged but like Brian said once it hit the dirt and did the Triple Lindy, they would have been no help at all.

Frame sliders worked for us when we crashed the race bike 2x this season on the track.
