    we ride the same roads (since 93) twice a year but have learned to back down from the pace in your vid....too many injuries & lost bikes

    Thanks for the prayers and get well wishes guys. Fortunately, we weren’t riding fast and were in a transitional section between the good roads. Girl was stopped in the middle of the road so the lady in front of us went around so we were going to follow suit. The girl didn’t see me and turned where I was. I probably hit her around 30mph. Bike is only damaged in the front and nothing on the sides which I thought was kind of crazy lucky.

    From an injury standpoint, body is sore as hell but nothing torn or broken other than my pride. Thankfully it wasn’t a skill crash or bike problem otherwise I’d be second guessing it to no end. I’m gonna heal up, hopefully the bike is salvageable otherwise I’ll look into another new bike project and of course post it up. Thanks again and be safe!

    Looking like the bike is going to be totaled according to my local shop. At this point I’m thinking it’s time to make the transition to a sport tourer. I’ve been eyeing up the new Super Duke GT which would still allow me to rail the corners but keep me in check everywhere else. Time marches on
