Was out riding with some friends Saturday (didn't go to the mountains but did go on a tour of NC it seemed like)... out just hitting some turns and having a good time. Naturally after 4+ hours of riding, we start getting pretty confident and pushing harder than we should on unfamiliar roads. I came into a right-hander a little hotter than usual, thought to myself "the bike can make it, just don't panic" held everything steady, and the front tire washed out on me. I'm sure there is something I did wrong (other than going too fast for the street) but I'm really baffled by the whole situation and why it happened. Every bit of bodywork on the bike is trashed, excluding 3 small pieces. The engine covers on the front are ground down a bit, and my pipe is fubar'd... but all in all the bike came out mechanically awesome, rode it 2 hours back home with not even a broken a lever. My knees took some bad rash as the pants I had on didn't hold up too well, I was wearing a leather jacket that busted through the stitches and gave me a little rash on one arm, and the jacket rode up I have some nice strawberry's on my lower back. All in all I couldn't be happier with how I faired in the accident, but the bike's condition really pisses me off... I have full coverage but my rates will be fucked if I make a claim, so it looks like I'm paying out of pocket. My final thought: you roll pretty violently when you fall from 50+mph haha. Maybe I will slow down next time haha.
