I've had my scout 60 since May. Love the bike but I've been told all my life that it's not if you have and accident but when. It's gonna happen if you ride. Glade you are ok.View attachment 601279 View attachment 601280 Well it happened, I was doing 55 in a slight curve (speed limit was 70) and a car pulled out in front of me. Administered a swerve and the back end caught gravel. Had all my gear except a jacket on and the saying "dress for the slide not the ride" rings true. Me and my baby got a few scratches but I'm getting her fixed next week. Even driving defensively can hurt. Stay safe out there.
Thanks! Rash ain't terrible considering what could have been.ooof. Glad you're alright 'cept for the rash.
Thanks Dwayne, definitely heard the same, had a few "I told you so" convos after.I've had my scout 60 since May. Love the bike but I've been told all my life that it's not if you have and accident but when. It's gonna happen if you ride. Glade you are ok.
Yes sir, helmet was a big factor in that plus laying it down instead of trying to ride it out through a fence. All in all one of the better outcomes.Thank God you made it through that! It could have ended much differently.
I hear ya on that, watching her hit the grass and roll hurt more than the sliding. Hell I'll put my pride as what hurts the most! LolI don't know what hurts the most after you get up, looking at the damage to your bike or the damage to your body. Glad your ok.
Oh man! At least you had video although I'm sure you hate watching it! I'm glad you're ok. I didn't have a camera but at least they stopped. Just hate that it happenedNot to hijack your thread and I'm glad you're ok as well. I've been riding since I was 15 (illegally of course LoL) I am now 46 (or so - I don't keep track anymore) and I had my first accident last year. Luckily for me, the shop I was pulling into had outside video surveillance cameras. So for your viewing enjoyment:
Hit me around 45MPH (I know it doesn't look like that fast on the video) but he hit me hard enough to bend the frame on my BELOVED Vic CCT. May she rest in peace.
