Could have been anything in the road at that hour - even another car.
On a much nicer note those knockers are super nice!

Reading the description of the accident, this sounds optimistic. Slamming into concrete = BAD

I'm with ya Squoddy. It is so amazing to me how quick some of us can be to criticize others for bad judgment, especially on a motorcycle. I try to use good sense, but if I had a nickel for every time I up and got away with it, I'd have some money. I can't imagine that I'm the only one.

Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery.
Looking at the video the street is pretty shinny, likely wet and slippery.
