I had my 1st ever bike accident on the way home from watching some racing at Donington yesterday, im ok 1st of all but it kinda scared the sh1t out of me!! Had only done a few miles south on the M1 in the outside lane in traffic doing 60'ish I'd reckon when a 4x4 in front braked hard. Saw it late & just jumped on the front brake.........front wheel must of locked as the next thing I know im sliding down the out outside lane of the M1 finishing with a couple of rolls for good measure! Hopped up & jogged to bike 20 yds down the road & stood her up to inspect. Scratched the hell out of the left hand side but the I've got crash protector bars which did their job of saving it from being worse. Will need some new bodywork, new left mirror, front left indicator, engine casing, gear selector lever & rear foot rest. As for me i've scratched the left hip of my leathers & some scrapes to the helmet. My left glove though wore through on the palm as I slid along the road & lost some skin about the size of a 2p coin from the palm near the wrist. Hurts like fook unsurprisingly, made clutch lever use a little difficult! No mechanical damage thank god as managed to make it the 130'ish miles home, all be it somewhat slower than it took me to get up there! I count my lucky stars it wasnt any faster or that I didnt hit anything nor anything hit me! 2 following cars stopped to help which was good of them, helped calm me down no end. Could have been so so much worse given I was on a motorway! And to top the day off the british rider who was meant to do well crashes at the 1st corner of the race & finished last...........should of stayed at home and watched it on the telly!!
