    Too high a speed, under-estimated the curve, and off the outside I went, about 200m in muddy grass before I finally lost her. I'm bruised, sore, but alive with nothing major harmed other than my pride, and my baby.

    That sucks. Glad you're okay. I always worry about that on the back roads.

    Congrats that looks like it was an amazingly soft landing and outcome for all. The diff is a big indicator of impact loads and it would pay to check frame before putting back on the road though.

    You did well. Went off road, kept'er straight in the soft stuff, lost some speed before crash landing low side. Good job. There are many Rockets out there waiting to be adopted. Last time we saw the early aftermath of a Harley that had the same misfortune. He could not keep it off road and crossed the road while laid down. OlBull posted the video.

    Wow glad you kept it up right for a few hundred metres before it went over.

    Might be able to get it written off and get one of those new fandango new 2020 models
