    Beautiful catch on the helmet cam made even better by the fact you walked away. What do pilots say??? Any landing you can walk away from is a successful landing. You now have your wings. :evil

    I've come out of being unconscious on a racetrack and it's bloody confusing enough. Being in the middle of nowhere with no road and no bike in sight.....holy shit. I think your comments match what most of us would be saying and thinking. Where the f*ck...... :huh. It's always hard watching the crashes where there's time to think about what's coming after you've past the point of no return.

    +1 on how did you and your bike get out. Did your friend recognize you had a concussion or did you realize when you watched the video ?

    Pretty bad!!!

    Good thing you made it.

    Your buddy didnt realise you fell?

    Didnt see him coming for you.

    Anyway, would like to see how you got your bike out of there.

    Keep up tough guy

    I'm not sure I know the OP or how he got my "unlisted" video, though I have an idea. I was planning to eventually post it but didn't want to spoil the ending of my ride report. Since its now out, I will go with the flow and make it "public", especially since I haven't even started the ride report.

    That said, I created my own thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=867625 where I will answer questions and provide the rest of the story.
