I've had 6 low sides just this year alone...but then again I race. Two of them were at 130+mph! Take it from me, the first one is the worst as far as beating yourself up over what you could have done differently. Just pick up the pieces and put the bike back together. Make sure everything is in proper working order and get back on it. Take it easy at first, just allow yourself time to get back into riding mentally. And then without realizing it, you'll be back riding with your previous gusto! We all fall down at some point. It's whether you get back up or not that separates us...

Thanks Nikk, I had a look at the bars last night and have straightened them for the most part via the top clamp adjustment. I'll take a better look over the weekend because I'm sure the triple clamp has twisted slightly on the forks.
I will definitely be riding again!

@slayer, speed limit is 70kph and in all honestly I was going about 76kph.
It was failure on both parties hence my previous statement.

should've gotten drivers details, just because you didn't make contact with one another he still caused you to have an accident and is at fault. Would've been better off hitting him cos then he would pay for damages and be at fault. Now it looks like a single vehicle accident with no other parties involved which it wasn't. He failed to give way and he should be held responsible if you weren't doing anything illegal at the time

76 on your speedo is probably almost dead on 70, well at least with my speedo

+1 on the speedo error.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

Your totally correct Lewi, I'll remember that for next time, not that there will be a next time
Bike is all fixed now, I was correct in assuming the triple clamp had twisted slightly and was no biggie to fix.

With safe regards from the mostly frozen north.
