I automatically assumed it came from the constant abuse those guys put on the front ends of their bikes. Pulling 12 o'clocks and non-stop wheelies produces a whole helluva lot of stress abuse on the front end. Although in this case it looks like he was trying to do a stoppie and something gave way.

At least the guys in the background had enough sense. To each their own, but the absolute minimum I always ride with are gloves and a lid.

wow,some pic. there must have been some hairline crack or a casting problem for that to happen. Its totally shattered. There is gonna be one expensive and painful ending to that.

cant understand why they never wear any leathers or even just a leather jacket, i mean you can get kevlar jeans that look and feel just like real jeans.
i know the value of a good helmet after hitting a sheep at 40mph about 4 weeks ago landed face down, without the helmet id not be here now.

Anything over 50mph and I'm wearing a jacket. Been down and it weren't pretty. Joe Rocket literally saved my skin.
