Talking Tip-Over GSXR in Bartlett

So Last night ..... Wednesday, about 8:00 or so ... We were passing through
downtown Bartlett near the Jewel ( Stearns and Bartlett Road ). There was
a GSXR something or other with non-factory paint going West-bound.

Stopped for traffic and then tipped over.

I was going to help but was headed South and turning away and in the
wrong lane.... before I could do anything the guy behind the bike got out
of his White GMC and helped the rider up.....

Rider headed West to the Dominic's at 59 and Stearns.


Anyone here want to fess up ?

It was me.....I was sooo ashamed that I was on a "gixer" that I just let her go. I should have left the bike where I found it...at the local gas station

More like .... Limp-Wristed Yamaha rider fails to control friends all-powerful GSXR.






The bike was actually nearly or completely at a standstill, it might of been the wind.
