Screw fog

I have to ride to work somtimes from the middle of Tasmania to Hobart at around 5:30am in winter! (one hour ride).
I ride in ice, snow, rain and hail but the fog..... set of for work one morning got about five K down the road doing about 80km/h in good visability, came through a cutout in a hill and hit a wall of thick fog on the other side! instant fog up of both visor and glasses = whiteout!.
lost site of the road and the next thing I know is hitting the ground with force!. I had drifted across the oncoming lane and somehow I had let the bike tip over on it's right side!(chrash bars rule) my sholder took most of the impact and still gives me pain to this day.
damage = broken indicator mirror and pride.
