Sorry to hear about your accident but I'm glad that you didn't break any bones and hopefully will heal up quickly

Ouch! That's gotta hurt almost as bad as the accident. Hope you're healing well though.

Glad you walked away! I wonder if you grabbed the front harder than you think, easy to do. Heal fast and get back on the road.


Plan for tomorrow and live for today.

ABS brakes are great. I had them and they work beautifully without skidding.

Will investigate more tomorrow. Bike is pretty bad but i was able to limp home
Yep, if you lock up the brakes, stay on them, if you let up and hit them again, you go high side.

I hope you feel better.
