Thank you for the well wishes. To answer a few of the questions, I was equipped head to toe: Arai helemt, Dainese jacket with back protector insert, Alpinestar knee and shin guards, Sidi boots. Perhaps that is why I came out relatively unscathed. I know some of you are just making comments, but some of you can be quite the . In your world, are all scenarios controllable? Do accidents not exist? If you have the power to control every aspect of your surroundings perhaps you should change your name to "". I admit i may have contributed to the accident, but is it not fair to say there may have been some other factors at play.. Again thank the rest of for your concern. I just wanted all of you to ride carefully b/c none of us invincible.

The challenges to riding the roads vs the track is the ever-changing road conditions.

This goes back to the percentage you ride the road at. if you are hugging lines and pushing yourself not alot of room for correction is made.

Still, the inevitable conclusion regardless of experience: you will go down and the percentage goes up when one gets comfortable on a road and take it for granted.

Mad props on the gear. That alone shows your commitment to your well being regardless of the silly things we all do on backroads against our better judgement.

+1 on wearing the gear!! I wear about the same, minus the brands so it goes to show me that gear is helpful and not a solution.I agree with you on some of the replies being an tone. Some people just get off on getting to tell someone "I told you so".
My main idea was just trying to figure out why you went down and how you broke your foot. Hope you heal up fast. I learned alot of stuff with this thread, one of them is what to expect to hear when you write a thread about a get off

So I assume I am the because I said I was glad that you were ok and to basically focus on what you did wrong and how you can correct that versus some factor that you cant control?

my bad.

Glad you are ok. Seriously I am.

+1 for wearing your gear, I assure you it did save your . A year and a half ago a Ram 1500 pulled out directly in my path and I t-boned it doing ~45ish, resulting in 2 broken arms. Wearing your gear is great until your bones break and they have to cut your jacket off lol jk. Just bought an 03 CBR 600rr today actually. Take the time to get the gears back. lol getting on the throttle hard today made me pretty edgy BUT LEARN FROM THE MISTAKE DONT REGRET IT!!!

It wouldn't have anything to do with how someone explained it on the internet, but how the OP is interpreting it. If he feels people are attacking him, when trying to offer others and himself with a better understanding for why he went down then I don't see they point of publicly posting such things.

Also to clear this up as some will be like 'Wow !' but in all honesty I much rather keep a calm sort of attitude towards everyone on this forum as it is no need for fellow riders to get pissy with each other. We have to watch out for each other as much as possibly as most people don't think its necessary.

As well on the forest rides I've been on there is always that one person whom thinks they have conquered the road that is 3090 and out rides his ability putting himself and the others in danger of his stupidity of the moment. Not saying you did such, but I admit on some of the turns I get cocky but I then realize that its not the place to do it, but misjudging happens on the road.
