No, I mean I gotz MAD skillz
It's all a matter of perspective.
Looking at the pics, seems you managed to keep it straight up until the moment of impact and not "lay'er down"...I'd say you do have "mad skills"...
Only thing I'm left wondering, is just how much speed you WEREN'T ABLE TO SCRUB OFF, after the ABS kicked in which might have resulted in even less damage.
All the "mad skillz" or awareness in the world can't prevent every accident but, can help you come out better than if you had no skills at all.
None of us who constantly extoll our skills are saying we are perfect and IT can't happen to us. We're just trying to get the point across that you can deal a whole lot better with fate and sometimes change it, when you have an ace up your sleeve.
(we know our clock can run out too)
Needless to say, your jab at us (if that's what "mad skillz" was about), and the results of your accident (if not for your "mad skillz", you might have fared much worse)...contradict each other.
F.W.I.W. I'm glad you came out ok. (the bike is replaceable)
Now go play the lottery and heal up!
