I went for a ride with a few people yesterday and the route was heading to the black spur with a detour via kinglake along St Andrews-Kinglake Road. We met at the Shell servo on the corner of Springvale and Whitehorse roads and I put air in the tyres. Had no idea how much air should be in the tyres, I pumped them up to 30psi. They were both registering at 20psi, so maybe that was my first indicator. Whilst travelling through ringwood and then ringwood-warrandyte road, the tyres felt like they weren't sticking to the road and was moving about a little. Passed through St Andrews and the first left hander is quickly followed by a right hander. Got around the left but felt like I was going too hot for the right. I'm not as comfortable on right handers as I am on left handers. Anyway, I know if it feels too hot to look where i want to go and push harder. However, despite knowing this, I did everything that I shouldn't do. Firstly, I target fixated on where I was heading rather than where I was going. I tried to tip the bike over more instead of pushing harder on the right handlebar. I got to a point where I knew I was in deep Do-do and decided to stand the bike up and wipe off as much speed as possible. I'm not sure if the bike then threw me off or what, as I hit the road pretty darn hard on my right hand side, which I'm now wondering was because despite the bike standing up, the front wheel hit the loose gravel on the side of the road and then I lost the front end. The damage, so far; BIKE - Front end out of alignment - Right peg severley bent (needs replacing) - Rear Brake Lever severley bent (either straightening or replacing) - Front brake lever seems bent, but will have this investigated further. - some scratching on the tank and the rear seat cowl - minor scratching on the muffler GEAR - Shoes, pant & jacket were all dri-rider and there is only scuffing - Gloves were week old Collins Leather SR4's and sustained only a small amount of scuffing; - Aria Helmet has some scratch marks on it. Not usre of the damage it has sustained and whether it should be replaced or not RIDER - Sore Right knee - Sore Right hip - Sore Right shoulder - No Broken bits - No cut bits All-in-all very lucky no major damage has been sustained. At least I got to walk/Ride away from the incident Thanks to Mach for coming back and then straightening the front end so we could continue up to Kinglake. Thanks to Chef, Dot and fzpilot for then straightening the front end enough for me to then be able to ride the bike to the Black Spur and then home. I'm still a fair bit sore today, but you would expect that. Lucky I fell on my right side as I am left handed and can still do stuff. Now to get the bike fixed ASAP, so I can get back out there.
