wow, glad you walked away
glad you were wearing all your gear and walked away
WOW ! I hope you are back riding
Glad you are okay and hopefully you can ride again soon if you are not already. Same thing happened with me last fall, I think my tire was cold others say there was oil in the uphill corner. I heard the motor start to wind up and realized what was happening but was already leaning into the corner. Too late. Instead, the rear end spun out (happened to be shifting 1-2), started to low side and ride it down but then the bike some how high sided (lean angle causing motor to stall and lock tire briefly?) and tossed me onto my head. Broken helmet like yours, bent subframe, damaged frame, and broke every piece of plastic on the bike. It sure is an erie feeling once you sit up and realize wtf just happened? Dont know about yours but mine was in the middle of 4 lane 55mph zone. I walked away with a totalled bike and a few bumps and bruises, one of which I still have today! I was fortunate and realized that leather, helmets, and gloves are worth wearing at all costs. I here you on the riding experience, Ive always rode dirt bikes and have snowmobiled all over Maine, Quebec, and New Brunswck for 15-20k miles but riding on two wheels you always need to be alert. My mistake was I am always watching other dumb asses trying to run me over and never though that my tire had not warmed up enough to make that up hill corner even though it was leaving from a dead stop at an intersection.
Trackdays?not sure what i'm going to do about riding..
Glad to hear you made a full recovery.i'm pretty much 100% now
