twice, first time I went out in the rain and got too happy with the throttle, spun the rear tire and let off the gas and once the tire gripped it threw me over the top of the bike (called a highside crash) flew about 10 feet and landed on my shoulder and helmet, thank god for protection!
second time I got bumped to advance class from intermediate and lost a braking battle to a faster guy ran off on to the grass and used the front brake like a dummy causing my front end to slide out, there was actually a photographer at the corner I crashed at lol check it- http://makeagif.com/i/6yVz1l

a couple of months ago i got rear-ended in freeway traffic in my truck.. if i was on the bike i'd be dead or paralyzed for sure. that accident still has me shook... at every stop now i'm clutch-in, in-gear, lane splitting the car in front of me.. i ride a harley and pretty much wear full-face all the time.

I have crashed 15 times on the racetrack. Worst injury was concussion and broken collar bone from a high side two years ago. Most of them I've walked away from...the high sides really hurt. I high sided at 90 mph exiting a turn...in front of the pits...walked away. People said I flew 20' in the air.

The most scarry crash was at 115 mph when I missed my turn in marker because of setting sun, other bikes I was passing, ect. I went off the track and tried to ride it out until I hit the mud...bike stopped and I went straight. Good times

I figure every race season I'll crash once. If I crash twice in a season, I start to slow down some...crashing is very expensive...and painful!

Well, I got an M3 to not get a bike.

But I still want a bike though. Every 600cc sport bike beats me so I need a car that can accelerate as fast as a 1000cc super sport bike, but I probably need a Bugatti to do that.

My Ninja is the slowest sport bike in this thread. It's often called a slow beginner bike. Even then it is still faster then your M3.

Go ahead and get yourself a super sport. Just be sure to kill only yourself when you crash it.
