Well 1st time down,

Completly my fault :( lack of concentration, large pot hole in the road really deep aswell
somehow missed it,didnt see it at all and front tire went straight in,well was wearing most of my gear except i had jeans on, my knees hurt alot right now and my right elbow,landed on my right elbow

I knows it not much but my first time down,pray to God its the last,the sound of the bike flying up and hitting the ground was the most painful,

be safe out there :thumbup

Hell of a way to learn about them damn potholes!!!

At least you got out relatively unharmed. You can easily fix a damaged bike.

Heal up and get back on the horse.:thumbup

bikes pretty badly damaged especially from the right side,and the windscreen handle bars, front brake lever,
the frame sliders didnt do a whole lot,

ive got 3rd party insurance so insurance isnt going to cover it :(
i wish i cud sue the local government,
going to dip into my savings now, see how much its going to cost to repair it,

well hey perfect time to go buy more mods for the bike :finger

feel really bad right now, but cant wait to get it fixed up and start again.:jump

thanks for the support guys :fork

I went down for the first time this year. Don't even remember the bike hitting the ground. Knocked myself out cold as I landed on my head :lol
I did a 180 over the trunk of a Buick at speed . . . only to double dribble my melon on the pavement . . . watching my bike follow me over the car doing the same aerobatics :crash

knocked me out, and fractured my tibia & fibia, the cager at fault (turned left in front of me) was 87 yrs. old & just about blind :eek:

almost put him out of his senile ass misery . . . but the cops stepped in :lol :lol :lol
