So, what's up with your clavicle? I shattered mine, 12 screws, a titanium plate and $30K later and it's fine.

Maybe you should focus on riding better instead of getting youtube views.

I swear 90% of the moto vlogs I see are squidwards who like to hear themselves talk

Doodle , did you by any chance tap the front brake as you were leaned into the turn ? I only ask because I've seen people go down by just tapping it with one finger midturn on Dry surfaces . It might of been rider error or just Mother Nature being a this morning .

Heal up quickly and be aware of road conditions

Lowsides are almost always caused by the front wheel losing grip, so get that thing up in the air and learn to ride mostly on the back wheel.

At least you'll get legal narcotics for the pain.

Hope you heal up fast. You need to get back on the horse.

And for the rest of you reading this thread - SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LANE SPLIT. Just had to bring it up again.....

You think or you know that you where off or on the brakes

I'm not trolling at all , I'm simply asking because either your not fully aware of what your doing while riding (complacent) or if you just misjudged the speed and weather conditions

I think, and I answer that honestly because a split second later something traumatic happened so things around those few seconds are a little fuzzy.

Looking at frames of the video, I'm still covering the front break, but I think I'm doing exactly that just covering. The reason I say this is because my train of thought at the Tim was brake hard while straight and then take the curve no brakes and clutch in, but who knows for sure now.

I was simply asking because I've seen many peoples front wash out by just a one finger tap of the front brake in midturn leaned in and then to top it off the roads were damp and oily on top of a slight bump of the brake .... Goodbye traction

That sucks. Welcome to the club. There are probably only a few of us that have wrecked brand new Tuonos. I tucked the front on mine going 40mph. Landed flat on my back though so I didn't break anything. Hope you heal up alright.

Go look up you tube videos of people's front end washing out from tapping the front brake midturn while leaned over, and on a dry surface as well

Might not have made a difference but it's always a good idea to ride in the same path as car tires. Same thing happened to me at an intersection a long time ago

Glad you're ok man, could have been a lot worse. I've found that turning with the clutch in and gliding more or less is much more difficult to control than using throttle through a turn. I guess when I was riding dirt growing up I was always taught you're either on the brake or the throttle, never coasting. That just stuck with me when I transitioned to street.

Dang man, glad you're okay. I'm ultra paranoid in the mornings! That dew is messed up, and it especially makes painted lines/other fluids on the road slick as anything.

So this means you're not good to go for our motovlogger meet sometime later?

Coasting clutch in through a turn loads the front a little.
Have you ever been to the track? I ask because its a great way to learn about your self and the capability of you bike.

I broke my clavicle before in my first crash and the worst part was the no riding. Depending on how bad the break was you could be back to riding in like 2 weeks.

Looks like a really pedestrian turn that many of us have made many times, doesn't look like you did anything differently than I would have done! Bad luck and road conditions look like the culprit. Machines can be replaced; but body parts cannot! Heal up!

this is some great advice. If I could expand on this also try to not crash. Or alternatively go back in time and avoid this first crash completely.

I know you enjoy having pain every time you move right now, but really it would be better Doodle.
