This Friday, while out on the Blue Ridge Parkway and other mountain roads, I high-sided. I got off the BRP onto Hwy 215, Near Brevard, NC. 215 is a very twistie stretch with fresh black top, tight turns, little traffic, and thankfully, wide shoulders in parts.While slowing down to enter a left hander, my rear tire locked up just before I started to lean into the turn. The rear slid right just a bit, then caught traction, and sent me flying! The bike slid on the right side, as did I, up the raod and onto the shoulder of the road. The bike stopped there, and I didn't. While sliding on my right side (mostly on my elbow) when I hit the dirt I went flying again. Other than rolling a few times times that is about all I remember until I was looking up at the sky through the dust. While laying there for a moment, all I could think of was what bones were broken. Thankfully other then being sore from head to toe, no injuries. Wearing ATGATT is a must. I was going about 50 the last I looked at the spedo, and hit the ground hard. I wear Olympia pants, and their AST jacket, and Alpine Stars boots, and HJC helmet, and good gloves. This could have been nasty. As for the bike (09 KLR) The Happy-Trails nerf bars did a pretty good job of taking most of the damage. The hand guard, and fairings are scratched up a bit, and I don't know where the hell my mirror went, but all else is fine. Last night I pounded out some of the bends in the cross support braces on the nerf bars, and other than finding a mirror nothing else needs to be done. Well maybe one more thing, tires. The Dunlop 666's can be a bit unpridictable to say the least, and the same can be said for the brakes on the KLR. I'll probably go back to TKC's. All in all, things are fine, and I'm gonna try to learn from this accident.
