I'm the dude that slid out on gravel on the right hander. That low sider finally slowed me down and helped me to remake my FZ into a naked bike. I haven't ridden that aggressively since. I also changed jobs and became a Mon-Fri 8-4 worker which ended up cutting back on my riding too.
The bike I wrecked Labor day when the cage pulled a left turn in front of me was my Kawasaki Mean Streak, which was going to be sold next spring anyway with the intention to buy a R1200RT.
I'm assuming my leg and knee will be OK by April or so.
FZ1, 1800 GoldWing, Mean Streak, SV650, VL1500, Vstar1100, etc.
