So this past sunday I went down at Bear mountain. First time in the twisties. Im 19 and have been riding for about 3 months but been riding almost every single day and almost all day whenever I could lol. Been doing good in the twisties all day, taking my time, knowing my limits, keeping at my own pace. Well here we go
. We were going down some backroad with some sick turns, the turn where i went down was going up a hill, and soon the hill peaked it was a hard almost 90 degress turn to the left. I was going into the turn a little to fast not expecting that degress of a turn. Went into the lean and realized shit im going to fast, and went right off the road. Luckily my bike went into the grass and than slid into a ditch.
As far as bike damage goes, only my windscreen cracked, a little piece of upper fairing where it covers airduct snapped off and thats basically it! No scratches really on bike since it went into a nice patch of grass and didnt tumble or hit anything. I need a new upper fairing bracket thing which is about 75 bucks since it snapped off on left side causing me to have no mirror. Its only about a $200 fix. Im just so happy no scratches on my bike. Cant even tell it went down if you dont look at windscreen and little piece of fairing!
As far as my injury. I had to ride home 4 hours in the dark and cold. I went to hospital for x rays and I have a separated shoulder. I need to be in this stupid sling for 4 weeks! Christmas day i take it off
Figured Id give us all something to talk about!!
Here are 2 pictures we snapped!! Wish they took 1 of a side pic.
