The Yamaha FZ-07's fork was destroyed in the accident. The impact bent the left stanchion and snapped the right one, spilling fork fluid all over the road--and me.
The Arai helmet I was wearing took the brunt of the impact, and I didn't even have a concussion. My iXS jacket did its job as well, the CE-approved shoulder armor absorbing the blow entirely. My only injury was a lower leg laceration requiring 4 stitches, but oddly enough the AGV Sport riding jeans I was wearing didn't have a mark on them.

What's New?
