Saw this on an insurance auction site. Too funny (sad) not to share.

You sure that wasn't after a "Rednecks with Paychecks" stunt?

Yup. That looks like unintentional customizing to me.

Looks to me like it was damaged and was set up that way so it won't fall over. It wouldn't be physically feasible to ride I like that. The handlebars don't match u with the forks and the wheel would hit the front beak in a turn. Look at the mirrors, one is missing, other is out of whack and the side stand int down, yet the bike is standing up perfectly straight. Was it an auto auction site?

Trying to think what all would have to fail to have it in that kind of shape. Regardless, I bet it was quite a "Holy S@*t" moment.

Like he said, one mirror missing and one turned to the front. "SUPERMAN!"

Yikes. Maybe he tried to jump something and came down really hard.

Nope. Rims are basically looking new (and round). They'd be the first to take impact.

Looks to me like something failed. The front wishbone appears to still be there (and ball joint), so it makes me wonder if the upper frame section failed, was adjusted and somehow just let go.

As there is no other cosmetic damage (on this side) it looks very interesting (and concerning)

hey all, this is a bike of a buddy of mine who is also an inmate here, but to make a long story short, 2010 bike was a right off, snapped triple clamp on impact...always watch for the second driver that pulls out... he is recovering with a hand injury since April, so hopefully he will be riding again soon ...a testimony to AGGATT
