Crashed the Triu mph 12 00 Ti ger last night on the way home from work. First crash on pavement in 31 years of street riding. Dark, raining, right hand uphill sweeper that I take at 75 mph when dry. I'm a roll on roll off type of rider, familiar road ten miles from home, long straight approach, roll off like normal, my plan is to roll off until about 50 mph at the apex before I pick up the throttle again, but it jumped out from under me at 63 mph. I thought I could save it, but once I was full left lock and could see the rear tire to my left I knew it was over. I tried to save it all the way to the ground, but once we were sliding I kicked free of the bike. I didn't notice any oncoming traffic on this two lane road, but we stayed in our lane, the bike and I. I waited until the sparks quit coming off the bike and figured I could get up...that was a mistake, I must have been doing 40 mph and slapped the pavement with my right hand when I came down again...ouch. Slid for much longer than I would have thought, probably because it was wet. Finally stopped, shook out every thing that hurt and didn't feel like I had any broken bones so I jumped up and flapped my arms to stop the car that had been behind me from running over the bike. He whipped around me and turned his four ways, I knew I had some time before the next one came along, so I started up the road after the bike, it was quite aways up the road. About then the next couple of cars came up, so I did the jump up and down flap my arms thing again and they stopped. Got the bike upright and off the road, nice guy offered to help, but I and the bike seemed able to continue, so I let him take off while I regrouped. Cause? I really don't know? Good tires, good road, not too much speed. The only thing I can think of is something on the roadway. There is a cross street right about where I lost control and maybe somebody pulled out from that road and spilled something, it was like ice, zero traction. I'll take a closer look at the road here in a minute on the way to work. Gear. New Tourmaster black power ranger outfit, no damage. Pretty new Scorpion hel met, no scuffs. Redwing boots have a few new scuffs. Cor tech glo ves and some palm scuffs, I'll keep wearing them Bike. Right Barkbuster took a good hit, but twisted up and I broke the bra ke lev er. Right crash bar saved the engine, need to repair or replace, ground 2/3 of the way through. Right front blinker lens broken, right fo g lig ht cov er mangled. Bra ke pe dal ground down a bit and the passenger peg took a grinding. Me. Right ankle, left shin, right hand and lost some skin on my right wrist. The worst of it is that I got soaked because my jacket rode up higher than my pants.
