I was with a few others, including NR Raven, tackling the road through the twisty Zumsteins, near Halls Gap (VIC) on Tue. The roads were fun, but ripply and one corner caught me out. All of a sudden there was no ground for the front. Raven went through first with his front skipping out on him, but making it through. Then I followed even slower and with the first skip it was gone from under me. Bummer! I was lucky... I only have a slight bruise on my elbow, my leather has a few little niks, my bike lost a mirror and indicator and scraped the fairing. So as far as drops go, it was gentle as anything. The thing is, a few ks before that I majorly misread a corner, but somehow rescued it by trusting the bike and leaning in to the point of a trail of sparks from my peg. Yet where I went down on the later corner, I'd had time to calm down, slow down and refocus. I crashed on the wrong corner! Not that it matters, but shows that sometimes you get away with stupid stuff, other times even the slightest misjudgement and you're gone. By the time I'd nursed my baby home her engine was seriously chugging and all the electrics other than the headlight had gone. Then, much to my amazement my housemate, who knows electrics (NOT bikes) fixed all the lights/horn etc AND the engine has never sounded better! I think I must have had a faulty fuse all along. I tried to get him to fix my chain, but he didn't think so Anyway, we live and learn.
