So I wrecked yesterday

I was out riding yesterday with my Brother (LSR-F3) and about 6 other guys and decided to hit up the twisties in Brookshire. I been out there many times before so I'm used to all the turns. I been riding now for about 8 1/2 years on sportbikes and had not been down once until yesterday, I guess my time was coming and I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later but just didn't know when. I came around one of the "S" turns and made the right turn perfect but was carrying to much speed into the left (130mph) :BangHead: and off into the grass I went. I knew that I was not gona make it because I was at full tilt with the left foot peg scraping and on the brakes. I brought the bike upright, like they taught me in the MSF course, and away I went. I ended up next to the barbed wire fence 50 yards away and the bike went end over end and smacked one of the post holding up the barbed wire fence. Yes, I was wearing leathers and a helmet but didn't have any boots on. The bike is not that bad believe it or not, mostly all cosmetic damage. I will post pics later. I however have a broken right ankle, sprained neck, goose egg on the head, and bumps and bruises all over. I'm pretty lucky to be alive wrecking at the speed I was going !!!. I guess someone was watching over me above thank . Well, that's all for now until I post pics up of my ankle and bike, however, I'm looking to buy some plastics and other parts for my 99 CBR F4. If anyone on here has some or knows someone selling some let me know. Thanks.

No doubt was looking out after you. Sorry to hear about your injuries. Just curious what are you talking about when you said they taught you to bring the bike upright from the MSF course?

I will ask again since nobody is answering my question.

In MSF they state to bring your bike upright and straighten it out first before applying full brakes for a stop. If you stop a bike that is in an angle, you will definitely lay it down.

It is an exercise in MSF where they have you go around a corner and then they give you a handsignal and you have to hit the brakes and come to a full stop. To accomplish this, stand the bike up, straighten it out and apply both brakes.

He wasn't going to make the turn, so he wanted to be upright before he exited the pavement so he could maximize braking. I am assuming he was braking.
