smashed my 750s

Came off my beloved 750s yesterday, got caught out by some loose gravel on a quickish left hander, lost the front got it gathered up again and had to run off straight ahead and over the embankment. The bike cartwheeled and ended up on top of me. It`s truly miraculous that I have no broken bones or lacerations ,substantial internal bruising and soft tissue damage (wear your leathers gang) even more astounding is the lack of damage to the bike.The seats are buggered and the taillight assembly is munched as it landed on it otherwise a couple of scratches . Will send some photos when I can lift my arms up to take some .The bike started straight up as if nothing had happened and I rode it home(hour away) and my flower called me an ambo cause I couldn`t move unassisted and breathing was a new experience in pain. These bikes must be the toughest ever created.
We are truly blessed in this country to have the medical support that we do and I cant say enough to thank the people involved,my hat is off to all of them.

Dam man, thats a real shame but glad to hear you are sort of ok and will live to fight another day. Perhaps some mods for the bike are now in order??

Sorry Cus, but glad to hear you're not worse.

Yep, these bikes are pretty tough, I was amazed at how well mine held up after chucking it down the road.

Tasmanians are made of tough stuff. Not many people would throw themselves under their bike to avoid damaging it.

Mend well, brother.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.
