    Default poor zed...i biffed it.

    Well unfortunately I took a digger yesterday, Friday the 13th claimed me as a victim....

    Long story short, somehow the front end washed out from me when a car cut me off (yes somehow ) and I went down on the right side. Frame slider did a good job, didnt chunk away as I had expected, held up well. Had to replace the bars, the fairings are scraped up a bit...and I got the exhaust and the rear passenger peg is ground down.

    Pretty pissed off that I down'ed her...as far as me - I was wearing my Speed and Strength jacket w/ a pair of jeans and work boots... If I didn't have the boots I think I would've broke my foot/ankle because the bike landed on me as it slid about 75ft down the road into a intersection. Luckily no one hit it, jeans did a okay job with the road rash, could've been worse. My knees are rashed up pretty good, I did about 7 cartwheels according to my friend so my whole body is sore, got a good size bruise on my hip and my shoulders hurt. My helmet is now trashed, I slammed pretty good on my lid so that'll be replaced.

    Waterford PD was quick to respond after about a milliion and 1 people called 911 thinking I was dead... I got up, walked to my bike - said a few swears and moved the bike. The guy who cut me off took off....couldn't get the plate but I gave the description to the LEO.

    All and all - could've been worse!

    glad you're ok. Bring it to a track day and learn how your breaks work so this doesn't happen again.
