Ouch is right.
Did he lower the bike too much?
He scraped his floorboard, his hard bag, and his foot.
Surley this is not typical for this bike.

That's the wrong bike to drag hard parts through corners. He's obviously a good rider and he's calm and cool when most riders would panic. But he trashed his arm and foot and the bike's got major damage. What a waste.

Hahahahahaha. Engine guards on that wreck would have been as effective as jumping up in the air, right before your airplane strikes the ground.

I read on the internet that that actually works, so it must be true.

He was prepared - even kept a jacket in his saddle bag.

I think I would have to disagree about him being a good rider. Anyone with stones can lean a bike but it takes a brain and some ability to survie an extreme twisty. Like Clint Eastwood said "Ya gotta know your limitations".

Got to feel sorry for this guy....

Can't figure out what went wrong, except it was a tight curve. Slid out nicely from a safety perspective...
