Around 79 or 80 I was riding my old CB450 and was in the right lane and someone passed me in the left lane and made a right turn in front of me. My knee dented his door and my gas tank. My shoulder took off his truck mirror and I hit a curb and flew over the handlebars and landed in a Goodyear parking lot. I straightened the forks and handlebars as best I could and drove it home. Sold it after that...

FZ1...twice. First sport bike moving from cruisers and I made errors in cornering speed/line and reaction when I realized I was in trouble. Learning experiences. Still rideable both times. Replaced fairing and headlight, bars once and eventually moved onto another bike. Goldwing; front wheel locked up from mechanical failure. Valve cover torn off and plastic damage. Sold as project or parts bike. I’ve never had any injuries.

Crashed my gsxr 1000 in 06 not much left of it worth keeping
Hot damn he was lucky that bike didn’t land on him. I’ve only been down once on a slow speed off camber right hand corner (I hate off camber corners) on a 93 Suzuki 1400 Intruder that has a kicked out front end like a chopper. I slid across both lanes with the bike on my right leg. I was wearing leather but no knee protection (pads). Three surgeries and a skin graft from my thigh was necessary to save my knee and it still looks like Frankenstein!:confused: I see many riders wearing protection everywhere but their legs. If they would only remember when they were kids and fell down, what hit first? The knees, hands, chin and elbows, sometimes the shoulder. Why protect everything except the knees?

Did you forget to strap or was that a normal thing for you to ride around like that?

Was just screwing around humming wheelies on my buddys Street. That's the first and last time ill,see ride with unstrapped. I'm trying to find pics of my face after accident. One good thing came out of it walked,in dealership,on crutches and against my gfs advise bought busa. its been three years and i love this bike more than ever. The duke was nice but not worth the money. Parts service etc are insane. Nvm the insurance glad i wrecked it probably would be never bought the busa

The only bike I had an issue with was a '76 RD 350, I hit some sand on a corner and ended up in the ditch covered in mud. The bike never went over though, I managed to keep it upright.

My buddy came back to see what happened to me and was laughing too hard to get me out of the ditch. I rode it out but man, was I covered in mud....!

In the early 70s a buddy of mine crashed a CB450 on a solo ride on a curvy mountain road and no one saw him go over an embankment. He went over but the bike was on the shoulder laying on its side. His abdomen struck one of those 3’ high metal mileage markers as he went over and he was knocked unconscious. His spleen was ruptured and bleeding inside but nobody saw him crash. As it turned out there was an ambulance on its way to a car crash a couple miles down the same road and as they rounded the corner and saw his bike on its side, assumed (that) was the accident scene they were called to and stopped. They found him down the embankment and ‘accidentally’ saved his life. :)

I read a similar story years ago about a rider who was saved almost the same way. Ambulance picked him up unconscious and took him away. Only hours later was the rider able to ask how his passenger was. She was found twenty feet farther down the hill and hadn’t survived. In the late 70s a cross country hiker found a Sportster in a giant array of bushes down an embankment off hiway 101. The reflection of the license tabs caught his eye or he wouldn’t have seen it at all, it was so concealed by the bushes. As he got closer he found the rider’s corpse. The rider had been reported missing several years earlier after a week into his tour. No one had seen him go over.
