Glad to hear you're ok.

You have a great attitude about it though. Gravel and obstacles on the road are few of the many added challenges on the street vs track. Always makes the next curve ahead nothing like the day before.

glad you are ok..

but seriously man, if the sight of an oncoming vehicle makes you nervous enough you crash, you might be better off just riding on a track.

Do a track day. I remember when I first had my bike going to crabb, constantly pushing it, after doing a trackday I realize before there was nothing fast just a sketchy kid blundering through backroads.

Check out Pyrobugs thread about a trackday, if you can get the bike fixed in time of course. It can teach you how to adjust your line with throttle control. It saved my once in practically the exact same situation you just found yourself in.
