One of the 1st things we are told to have when getting the MSF ( motorcycle safety foundation) course, is to always ride with shoes that have proper ankle protection. I've tried riding with sneakers once/twice, but never really liked it and decided to wear my boots no matter how short a ride.

Any damages to bike?
Thanks guys.

I was doing around 60-70 km/h and saw this Coca-Cola truck on the left side of the road ahead. There was enough space for another truck to overtake him but, he suddenly came to the extreme right and I had no option but to brake hard as there was no place for even my RX to go through. Theres usually a bit of gravel very close to the divider and so the front wheel locked and I crashed on the divider.

The bike is damamged quite badly. I think the rear tyre of the truck went over the rear wheel of my bike. The bike needs new rear drum, rear rim/spokes, handlebar, rear fender, chain cover and maybe some more when the mech checks it. Will post pics soon.

thanks brother, no riding style and all. its just that thing in you which makes you go faster. Trust me all people here with superbikes must hit the track atleast once. you will fall in love with the riding you do there,because you will know how a good superbike handles then you get all the stuff and its very costly thats the only reason i think not too much people accumalate in the sport, For Example the tyres which we use are Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa and these cost a bomb 25000 per race and its for only 1 race. you use more of the tyre saying no money for tyres , we will surely be off the bike. lets hope the best comes for people with superbikes and make sure you people ride on the track atleast once.......
