5,000 miles over four years isn't much riding. If she decides to get back on, and hopefully she'll do more riding to keep her skills sharp.
Yea- as it was unfolding I just about shit my pants cuz all I could envision was her going over the bars. She was owning the corners up to then and I was hanging back because I didn't want her to feel rushed. I stressed the "We're not in a rush" and "stay in your zone"... I think the mix of chilly, wet road, tar snakes, and shadow fucked with her head.
Not sure if I should claim the insurance- probably $1200 in damage (I could give a shit about the repairs, I'm just glad she's okay).
