Bad Day

Thought I wold share photos of my accident from April. My first ride on new CBR didn't end well. Got totally taken by surprise when the back wheel came up off the ground aka stoppie going into the corner. Suffice to say didn't make the corner and kissed the armco barrier. A week in hospital with two broken arms with three metal plates fitted to my left arm.
Six months later I have replaced the Blade with another, thanks to my insurance and loving it.

Unclear what region that's in, but most likely his insurance will cover the property damage. That is the least of this guys concerns...
