My down was like half and half!! Ask Rev or Dyno...they had front row seats and almost ran me over.... my bike was slidinat like a 45degree angle then the tires grabbed and tossed me over...kinda like a high side... but the bike didn't flip over and over like most high sides...but it landed REALLY hard!!

Dyno had said afterwards that it looked like the bike went horizontal, levitated for a split second and then hit the ground!

In any effect is sucked...

Mangled frame slider, crack plastic, scratched plastic, wore down swingarm slider, and a cracked and grinded stator cover. Which was cracked and leaking a little oil wen under oil pressure.

I was wearing full race leathers, gloves, helmet. Even though I was thrown from the bike and rolled on the pavement, I walked away with not a scratch. Had a little soreness the next day but that's it. Got lucky, considering my sholder ended on the double yellow line and my head was over!! YIKES!! But all is well, new stator cover and I was back to riding like 3 days later!!!
