Thanks a lot guys and yeah I'm actually good only the lower fairing got scratched and those ebay frame sliders did the job.I never really believed in those sliders as the only cost 30bucks.but anyway yeah I saw the video and yeah I have never been on that road.just glad my first time ever falling happened like this and able to fix it and walk away.thanks guys and the camera was in 960p I think 30fps .and happened el paso Texas.also I knew my tires were not warmed so all in all was just me not thinking and booom here comes the craken .
Could have been sandy too, with all that sand/dirt I saw along the curb.

the wifey was the one that i was most scared to tell.I instantly text everyone and everyone shows up to my house and we plugged in the gopro to the big screen and everyone asked. " what are you telling them before you fall CHECK This OUT!. then everyone at same time "gasp then ouuuch" lol. Hope this doesnt happen to anyone else learn from my mistake and well be smarter and think twice lol
Yep cold tires can creep up on anyone! Even when you're not pushing it!

Same thing I was thinking. Didn't sound too smooth on the throttle either.
