Bike: 2004 Sv 650 SF
18:31 is the time you want to skip to.
Before i go into the details and BS excuses “this was entirely my (the operator of the vehicle) fault this could have been avoided by safer riding and following basic teachings."
now that being said i came in too fast into the corner im not sure how fast i was going (38mph while in the turn) but i hesitated as i was in the turn and slightly applied the front brakes causing me to move over into the other lane. i attempted to push back into my lane on the slippery road surface and the bike slid out from under me.
my other bullshit excuse is that on my normal commutes i dont get into much of a lean and the outer portion of my tire (the Chicken Strip) hasnt been broken in yet so it was basically turning on a wet surface at high speeds with a new tire with its slippery outer lining. and after reviewing the video im pretty sure i slipped on the white divider lines.
and yes this was my first time riding on that road
damage to the bike can be seen in the vid damage to me was a sprained/swollen left thumb and minor scrape near my knee/shin area (about quarter sized)
