    My turn to be a statistic....

    FACK!!! ....lost it coming into an slight uphill RH turn approaching a stop sign this am....something on the road in the rain and cold... who knows?.... not me..... I ride this road several times a week...one second I am just looking up ahead as I am slowing down, next the bike is tossing me off and spinning on down the road.... It has been so long since something like this has happened I forgot how fast stuff goes sideways...

    Little banged up in the soft tissue areas of the shoulder and torso, proper gear kept me safe, GIVI crash bars saved the fairings, but not the front signal nor footpeg / brake lever.....

    small price to pay for a lesson in humility and skid control...

    ATGATT.....

    They're professionals when it comes to emptying a pocket book so if you decide to go that route remember that you are not paying them to be with you.

    You're paying them to leave.

    Glad to hear only your pride got hurt. That's the least painful reminder of always being safe ...

    I think the more accurate adjective is "indescribable"
