This dude Milton comes running up, he was sitting sunning himself, helps me right the bike and was talking to me to make sure I was okay. I was pretty shaken but had my priorities in order. Fished out my smokes, all but 2 were smashed and broken, lit up and checked the bike. Well milton is an AMA mech and has been on dirt tracks all over the world. Once he realized that I was fine he stated that that was the best fall he had ever seen and he was disappointed that he didn't have his video camera out and running, lol.
Geoff was concerned but I waved him off and we hit the shop. Weaver and Alan got the bike back together in no time flat, 4 hrs while I cleaned myself up. they wanted me to go to the hospital but I steadfastly declined knowing I was mostly surface hurt.
With the Wraith back in order Geoff and I continued on our way and rode yesterday for another 230 miles through the beautiful twisties of the Bear mountain and the various routes along the uper part of the hudson.
i think I will revisit my theory of ATGATT
I have rash along the right side of my body a few gouges here and there prob some bruising on my ribs and left knee but nothing more substantial and that a steady dose of Advil cant handle.
The bike is riding great and better than before.
My take aways are as follows;
1. Wear your gear
2. Dont be overconfident.
3. respect your machine and dont take it for granted.
