Good to hear your ok, man. Good luck getting her back up to snuff.
Funny how you treat it like no big thang. Your a Road Warrior. LOL
hahaha after gaining some distance to it, I should have just sat and chilled, for a moment at least, hahha, but yeah I look at accidents and close calls as LIFE CONFIRMATIONS!!!!! meaning your life was just confirmed HAVE A NICE DAY!, haha, otherwise you dwell on what could have happened, and I doubt the people who die are hearing, YOU COULD HAVE LIVED BRO, haha
those are some sweet fairings! maybe I'll swap out mine this winter for something like that. I've always liked white on CBR's
Hows the fitment on those? (from motofans correct?)
MOTOFANS YES CORRECT!, and Fitment was on!!!!, didnt have one issue installing the fairings, I will do a full build up video once I get replacement parts with I just got in a wreck what should I check out, HA, haha
I do like the "tri-color".
YUP!!!! My design, so I need to get it back in action,
good recovery, and glad to hear you are OK.
surprisingly minimal damage...!
manly reaction, and good "how to react" advice.
lady have ins?
probably worth checking into.....
scuffs are surprisingly $ to repair.....
and she did take you down on a major freeway!.
(could you have avoided it w/increased situation awareness?)
if ins pays.....
YES!!!, Could have def been avoided in many ways, but those ways also could have posed more danger, I usually am going faster than I was, but I was playing it cautious, that could have saved me right there, as when I hit it it was like a hard football tackle, only it was the front end of a car, not a person, haha, so that might have either saved my life or it could have been the reason I was even there,
if I was going faster though I think I might have had to deal with the person in front of this lady that came over at the same time causing her to react more quickly than she should have, I dont know what they were doing it was traffic on their side so maybe they were trying to get around like DAMN IT Im tired of waiting, HELLO RIDER!, haha,
cause I had a moment to grab the brake then BAM WEEEE, FEET HI!, PARTS< NOOOOOOOO, look behind me, LAYING ON HER SIDE!!! NOOOOO WAYYYY!! hahaha, then it was no blood no breaks start bike, BACK ON THE ROAD, now looking back it was fear making me leave, alone and just bang into a car and had the world flipped all around, hahah,
I ride in the morning, the whole reason why I have several 600RRs,
I know the feeling, when I was side swiped I reacted the same way. I got up and was fine but my bike was down for the count. Cracked my oil pan, therefore I had time to think about getting the police involved. If my bike had not of been leaking oil I probably would've just taken the number down and left too. Weird how we both felt the same way because of that adrenaline rush.
its the adrenaline, fear, kind of just piecing your mind together, and flight or fight, I was SUPER uncomfortable, haha sounds soo dumb you just smacked a 3K metal object, its not like you got a massage, hahaah, so yeah it was like uhhhh Im okay you okay, I can fix this looked about 200, then of course my deductible is 500, plus points and all that, screw it, see ya hahah,
now after a few hours I think as a rider we are entitled to a moment of rest, a moment to gather our minds again, walk off to the side and just gather yourself,
I did it when I pushed the bike to the turning lane and reset the BAS, but I didnt do it long enough I just got back to heading to work,
so yeah I ve got a write up in the works for how to CRASH, hahha, chime in with what you think it will be a good read Im sure, haha
thanks for the well wishes everyone, stats say this is going to happen, especially where I live, GEAR UP!!! is all I can say,
