    I am not sure what happened.
    I have 3 memories.
    First I waved another biker by, because he was way faster. I remember being quite impressed how fast and deep he went into the curve.
    Then I remember darkly how I drove off the road, bumped over some dirtpiles.
    Next thing was me lying on the ground in stable side position and people around me.
    Then a helicopter ride to the clinic.

    I couldn't say if I was even breaking or cornering.
    For all I remember I just didn't notice the corner because I looked at the other rider.

    Derp!

    I hope the hip mends properly.
    Have you been scared off bikes now or do you want to come back to them?

    Get well, always sad to see someone get in an accident.

    Hope there is nothing worse than the hip.

    Probably going back. Ofc I'll try it first if I get any panic attacks or something.

    But since I have no real recollection of the accident, I doubt I'll have problems.

    On a positiv note. I get way better breakfast here than at home.

    Well, in the police press release they mentioned damages of 5000. Which would be still more than my bike would be worth if it didn't crash.
    On the two blurry pictures I saw, I saw a broken steering bar. Ripped off pannier and similar. The frunk (helmet case instead of where the tank usually is) is open and cannot be closed.

    I assume all the fairings are broken and it wouldn't surprise me if the frame is bent too.

    Also I think made a darkflare. According to the police report I came too far right in a long left curve, touched something which then busted my leaning to the left.

    Typical accident then, lost traction on sand.
    Hope you had full insurance on it.

    Just got Intel from the enemy (they'll pierce me with a needle in the stomach every day for the next 8 weeks), that I'll get released in 5 days.

    Gotta find someone else to do that to me then. Any takers?

    I can poke fun at you if that helps?
