http://www.racerxill.com/071502_tribune.cfm Not speculating on what the guys going through because that would be one of the worse things to get paralyzed. But to be able to sue for $24 million dollars doing something you know has great risk. Course there are factors like, Did Yamaha know that the carb was defective and sell the bikes anyway. (If that was even the case.) I see something about the chrome peeling. However, the ultimate thing to me here. According to the article, "A week before the accident the guy noticed that the motorcycle would hesitate for a few seconds in returning to idle after he released the throttle." HELLOOOOOOO?????? My throttle is hanging, however I'll just keep riding it. Also, the jumps were 2 to 3 feet high and 12 ft apart???? You could almost run and jump that far.
