[OFF TOPIC] My Crash

[OFF TOPIC] My Crash

I managed to get my tracking company to send me the radar of my crash and when it happened. Just looking at it and the speed I was going at impact (67mph), it amazes me that I survived, let alone walked away and didn't even go hospital for a month... not a smart move I know.

I have had to crop out some details as it includes confidential information but from what I can show you can see, as I turn into the road, the first yellow marking is where I see the car swerve into my lane.. just after that, I slam my bike to the left but due to it being a 70mph road and both of us doing that speed, an impact was inevitable. Where the green marks are is where the impact happened at a combined speed of 114mph causing my bike and myself to get thrown to the left and it seeming my bike did a cartwheel as well... new feature for the spec list then, the bike can do acrobatics!

Somehow I came out uninjured and so did the bike (sort of!).

TheInjuredBiker, you are truly a walking miracle. It amazes me as well that you were able to walk away from an impact like that. The scars may not be physical but apparently left a deep emotional one. I hope you overcome that with the help of your psychiatrist and of course the support from the forum

Take care, stay safe, you are already strong :)

Hey Agora1, hope you're well! Same here! I have to see a GI doctor this month as they think there may be a minor underlying injury but other than that and a few bruises, completely uninjured. I put it down to wearing decent quality gear! Worth the money! But as you say, mentally it evidently has and still surprises me it has. I am trying to work out why but I don't think I will ever have the answer to that question.

Thank you very much, and the same to you :)
