I'm now officially a statistic

I'll try to keep this short, but it brings me great pain.

The story: We took a day trip to Cedar point, this was on the way back, mile marker 9 on Northbound I-75

hit a diag crack, sent into unrecoverable tank slapper. According to the trail in the wet grass, i saved it, but lost it in the grass.

wearing my coat, underarmor, Race gloves, race boots, jeans, vemar helmet.

Only have bruises on my hip, a little on my kneeds, and some scratches on my other hip.

by the time I stopped rolling (and landed on my feet) I began hating michigan, but guys... I lived through this one, and I was going 80. I'm a living testiment to gear, so please take that as a warning or what have you, michigan roads suck, along with its cagers, so PLEASE, dress for the crash, not for the ride!

I havent had the time to look closely at the bike and discloth it, but I'm going to say no.

the left fork looks like it folded a good few mm..

the subframe looks traight from the rear, but i dont know about vert.

Look at the exhaust..

and teh battery and computer/fuses used to be under the seat, if you can look athte side profile, you'll see they're jacke.d I'm not sure if they moved, or if EVERYTHIGN else moved, but....

holy sh*t man...glad the gear did its job. I think something like that would be enough to scare me off a bike for a while...or make me more excited about owning a dirtbike heh.

Totally sucks to see this but again, I'm glad you're alright.

If it makes you feel any better, I was on my way back from BC after moving Jonathan in, and realized at about 696 and Mound that I left my keys sitting on his kitchen counter
