Hey this is for all the guys that watched me bail on th ft langley ride today. I am fine tiny road rash above my ass, otherwise uninjured. Crashed, did a front flip, bounced off my back, LANDED ON MY FEET. I landed into almost a jog. I wish it was filmed. Glad i wasn't squidding it
Just so were clear on the mistakes i made, let go over them.
1. Tried to keep up with riders above my ability
3. Object Fixation
4. Failed to recognize gravel shoulder
No worries though, my helmet didn't even touch the ground and i only damaged 1 fairing (thanx frame sliders!) 55.78 + s/h for a new fairing and a tiny but of black spray paint and the bike looks fine and runs great.
Just to make this interesting, have a sip of beer for everytime "look where you want to go" is mentioned in this post
