Don't know about the injuries of course - but I'll bet that back pack saved the faller from some serious friction burns.

A new meaning for 'skid marks'.

Though it's possible a few of the old variety may have been produced.

Looks like you are tearing up the curves, you need some bbq sauce to go with those chicken strips ;)

Thank you! After seeing that, I can't help but imagine the fun of modifying the geometry slightly, enlarging it, and making an enclosed (car type) vehicle I'd love to have something like that so I could have something that leans to take my motorcycle phobic friends for rides and show 'em what it's like

Nope, the left shoulder strap got caught in the chain after she fell and cut the top of her shoulder basically down to the bone...

Yeah, expecially that twatwaffle who goosed the throttle and put a passenger on that seat.

Ouch, that just hurts looking at it. Still it could have been worse, looking at how that left arm got pulled down just as the rear tire locked up.
