There's a dent in the header pipe too.

Has to be one of the street wheelie guys, prolly head on into car/something

Next he will try to warranty the frame and flame Honda if they don't.

Hit a wall had to hurt.

Not enough flex in the new A-Kit forks lol. But the titanium tank look to be ok.

I mean, there isnt even dirt on it

This is obviously a "ran-into-car/wall-while-showing-off" situation

Front brake lever is broke too.

Never would've happened if he was riding a two stroke.

Did this happen in Bulgaria?

HTF do you even get whiskey throttle on a four stroke? And to the extent that you then plow into a wall? There are some special riders out there.

Cracked frame emplies weld failure... that is obviously a broken frame from a catastrophic lack of riding ability.

Maybe he should have taken the tampons that come with a CRF250 whistling tongue laughing

Edit: newmann beat me to it!

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

Clearly a case of the dealer not torquing the sprocket bolts . I have seen this a thousand times

However, I find it hard to imagine that old mate on the Honduh was going 'Poto speed. Most of us probably couldn't even breathe - let alone think - going RV's pace.

My thoughts were that some kid pulled this out of the crate and had the shot of being the first one to ever ride it..... and he did so. Into the back wall of the dealership building. Insurance claim time! Poor kid had the high and certain low of his life in the span of 30 seconds......
kinda like my wedding day......

Looks like it was squeezed end-to-end in a big vice!
