Well had my first off yesterday and well it sucks. Basically went riding with a group and went around a new corner (new to me) to fast went wide hit some dirt and slid out. I was going about 50 km/h and remember the thud of the helmet and stones going past a roll and ending on my back. Thankfully the people that I was with were quite experienced - one being a ex-cop - so everything was pretty smooth in regards to dealing with traffic and getting ambo etc. Was taken to hospital for neck x-rays as I had pains but full movement. After I was x-rayed everything was fine. It would seem alot of the neck pain was from the brace digging in. I am a bit sore and stiff but fine. Ended with a minor cut on my hand and a little road rash on forearm that's no worse then carpet burn. The bike - esp being an old one - will most likely be a write off the front forks are technically rooted, then theres the usual damage of levers and pegs etc. I only have 1 pic of the bike, will get more once at the mechanics today. Also gear shots. Finally the only shot I have of the bike. You can see the slide marks in the dirt. I was about 2 meters behind the ambo - was about a 20 meter slid and roll.
