First of all let me introduce myself. To those that were up on Cypress today (Sun Apr 18), I am the 748 rider that managed to dump my bike coming down the mountain around 4:00. I would like to thank all the people who helped me pull my bike out of the brush. I'm sorry I didn't get your names but you know who you are and I really appreciated your help.
Wiping out for the first time is a interesting experience. I have nobody to blame except for myself. All I remember is going wide, the front hitting some dirt and bam.. going down. The next think you know, I'm getting up and staring in disbeilef at my bike lying on it's side. Fortunately I was ok other than some minor road rash and a bruised shoulder. The bike on the other hand, is only cosmetically damaged. I should be able to leverage some connections and get it up and running soon.
As I look back the following points stuck out with me
1. Nothing wrecks a good day like a crash
2. Plastic and metal can be repaired, money is just money,
3. The BC sportbike community is a great community and I am priveledged to be a part of it.
Ride safe. I'll see you out there soon enough.
