Well about 10 of us were going for a run down a highway to the beach and my friend on his zx7 went down. Started when a rider in the front tapped his helmet alerting us of police so the rider in front broke a little harder then normal which sent the zx7 into a hard front brake lock then tank slapper due to him trying to avoid crashing into the biker in front then he hit the divider with his left side and the bike actually fell almost parallel to the pavement on the right side and bounced him back up. Friend came out without any injuries but he did lose his cell phone, his rear brake bracket broke off due to the inpact of his right peg against the pavement and his exhaust bracket broke due to his exhaust hitting the pavement. Sounds weird eh? well luckily he's ok and probably one of the most bazaar accidents yet.
