I want to start this off saying two things.

One: Polaroid cameras suck. I took three pictures of my exhaust to get a good one and still didn't get one worth a crap. On top of that the pictures of my rash look like nothing because it washed them out. But that is ok. We took more with a regular camera :)

Here is a pic from a map of the curve it happened on.


Here is a pic of the right footpeg. Snapped it off at the bracket.


Here is my poor poor Corbin Gunfighter & Lady seat :(


Two pics of my shattered dash and broken clip-on.



Here is a pic of my exhaust. Also the major player in the accident.


Just a pic from the front. No plastic untouched.


Wish my knee looked this good in real life.


And my arm as well. Looks pretty healthy in this pic.


Unfortunatly my camera ran out of film before I could get my back

Interesting pics. Your Road rash is pretty mild. Just be thankful it wasnt any worse.

Looks like a mean curve that can surprise a rider if not ready for it.

How fast were you going when you "touched down"?

As for the rash being mild... trust me, its worse than it looks in the pictures. First comment that my mom made when she saw the pics this morning was "well don't you wish you looked that good?" LOL

I couldn't take pics of all the bruises as they don't get real dark on me and the polaroid wouldn't get them.

I feel like I've been in the worst fight of my life with the biggest mofo to walk the earth and then lost.

As for speed? Hmm, well. I'd just be guessing as to how fast I was when I actually dropped. Probably had slowed down to about 60mph.

freaky...

Dude, your bike is almost identical to mine after I wrecked it. Check it out: You can see the dent at the bottom of the pipe where it finally landed on the curb. Also, on the opposing side the seat is torn like yours and the tank is crushed in 2 places.

Go here for the rest of the pics (11 in all): http://cbrryda.sportbikeworld.com/photo.html and scroll to the third row. That begins my post-wreck pics with the last two being a the last bit of fun I had on the bike before I let the salvage guy come get it.

Well, I got lucky in that my tank only has a couple of small chips. No dents or scratches.

The X-metal pipe is in near perfect condition minus the scrape on the front cap of the can. Just havn't figured out how that happened.
