hi all thought i would post my balls up from this morning. on my way home from work at 4:20am wind howling realy badly, traveling along at 80 clicks and the bike kept trying to come out from underneath me.(is this normal in the wind ?) anyway got scared and slowed down as the feeling of tyres slipping was making me feel uneasy. made a left and turn into a street approached a roundabout (intending to go straight) and was doing around 40KMS knocked it don 1 cogg, leaned into the roundabout to the left rebalanced bike to centre and leaned to the right and as i was doing this the wind hit the bike from the RHS and made me drift to the left a conciderable amount, unfortunadely i taped the rear brake to try and stop buy it caused the rear to come out to the left, i knew i was in trouble and just released the brake uprighted it and the gutter was next. only tapped the gutter but enough to go over the LH bar face first. remember the whole thing, hitting the ground visor first, rolling a couple of times comming to rest on my back,lying there for a few seconds wondering WTF and upset at the fact my 1980 click bike now has a big chunk of terra firma on it. i lyied there for a few seconds thinking will anyone come ? i was so sore and i was in shock, shaking, but no one... so i stumbled over to the bike picked it up, mirroe and indicatord hanging off (had a little smile on my face like "far out this is what it feels like") hit the kill switch to reset the tip over switch, hit the start button and she fired, i hoped on and re selected 1st gear rode the clutch out to see if all was right and continued in 1st gear 800 odd metres to my house, (bike felt fine, steered straight, no vibes ect, got inside and walked in to the missus "hey honey listen before you yell at me i am ok but i have come off the bike" got the treatment are you ok ect and the ambo's where called so me and the helmet where off to the hospital. bruised jaw (cant close my mouth),face,arms legs, back neck bruising, ect, the biggest part that hurts is my big toe, must have hit something as the toe nail is pushed all the way back major pain..... home typing this and i kicked the kitchen table AHahahahahahahah.... the helmet was scratched at the front (useless as tits to a bull as had an impact point around my jaw) dry riders need a wash, bike needs a set of fairings, indicators, mirrors ect (and a bloke who knows what he is on about to give it a check over) i feel if i had a bigger bike this would have been avoided 600-1000 which is heavier and more tyre than my CBR 125 but having said that if i had a bigger bike to start with i know i would be dead right now as i had my first wake up call in the wet being stupid a while ago and was glad i had no more power than i had..... ever since then i have been carefull hence why i slowed down in the wind but ? "you get that" i suppose... i will be fixing the bike and continue riding but want a 1000CBR for the extra power and weight/tyre size.. what is everyones thought on the "wind blowing me over" is it common or am i missing something ?
