I came off the bike last night on New South Head Rd, I ran over a coiled length of electrical flex just as I was counter steering into a right hand bend. I felt little jolt as the bike was tipping into the corner, then the front wheel just kept slipping away and went down onto the right side. Hit the road on the point of my right shoulder, then rolled onto my right knee and forearm as I slid down the road before putting my hands down and using the remaining momentum to get back on my feet and off the road. The bike spun down the road and came to rest on the footpath with remarkably little damage - ding in the tank from the handlebars, Bent front brake lever, scratched fairing, broken right foot peg, cracked stator cover and scratched top box - but was ok to ride home after checking it over. I got away completely unmarked, all the gear did it's thing in excess of my expectations. The armour in the Motoport gear I was wearing is awesome stuff, I'd go so far as to describe the impact with the road at 60+km/h as comfortable! Could I have done something different to prevent the crash? - The flex was difficult to see even when I walked back to work out to what had caused the crash - orange flex on rough concrete road under orange street lighting, not sure I could have seen it before I hit it, although my attention was on other traffic rather than the road surface at the time.
