Glad to see that you made it out of that and you have chosen to get back on. Just use it as a learning experience and move on to be safer down the road. Do you remember much about it or find yourself going back over the events in your head?

Glad you are okay to post this and share with us.

Gear, gear, gear, gear. Having been through a couple of incidents myself, can't thank my gear and the EMS personnel enough

this was not my first bike I have been riding for 30 years. My last bike was a CBR1000FP 1993 model and have rised the road many times before. It was my first ride on the new bike and I guess I must have applied the brake to hard. The old bike had shit brakes so had to pull hard.
The post is still the same as I went over the road again on Sunday. My insurance just covers the bike and my home contents covered the helmet, jacket and gloves.
We have a system in New Zealand called accident compensation. Free ambulance,hospital care, check ups, physic etc and they pay 80% of my wages while I was off work. We pay levies to the government through things like vehicle registration and petrol.
It has certainly has given me a wake up call and have been taking it easy on the new bike.
