My high side caught on tape, going down hard

My high side caught on film

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I high sided this fall while filming some other riders on wet roads, the rear facing camera catches all of the action.

I am not just the owner but a customer Too!

I got back from the Gap in November I went down for a week and did a bunch of riding with Bernie, the older guy with the duck and the young wife, we rode for about 3 good days towards the end of the week, I plan on going down again if it warms up, I normally ride snowmobiles this time of year but there is no snow up here

Thanks for the kind words on the repairs, it is always better to repair a customers bike than you own.

I did break the clutch lever so riding home was a challenge, the guys stopped traffic for me at the intersections.

I hit the guard rail with my legs and with my right arm, the cut you see was from the impact, I ended up using super glue to seal it up so it would stop bleeding. I lost the use of my right arm for about a week, walking was pretty tough for a few weeks. I just ate with my left hand, I have healed up good since, 4 weeks after the crash I was back at it again

Saw gravel in the corner as well... which might have been what started the front wheel to go out!

Good vid and again great work. I have been pimping your services all over TWF.

Thought I saw gravel in the road too. That, combined with the wet pavement, was obviously what caused the get-off. Glad you're doing well. LOVE the repair work!!
