I wanted to point out that this 05 gixxer 1k has zero frame damage and low sided at 70mph plus hit the guard rail. Lets see what some of the other bikes look like after they crash. 1.) I don't think this gixxer frame ripping apart thing is only happening to gixxers. 2.) I think the crashes where they rip apart are being hit harder, and hitting other bigger things then what is being told on the web. Maybe the deal is that the 05 is such a good bike, people who don't have one are trying to cut it down. Who knows? Let's see some pictures of other bike crashes.
