well i was out on the sumo yesterday and on my way home. everything was going great, i was nice and snug in all my gear.
at the last minute i saw some black ice and front just went from me. so as i was sliding down the road on my bum and elbow i thought cool, as my bike was letting rip with the sparks.
ive just got some pulled and battered muscles on my right side. my gear held up great so im well pleased with it.
the bike has just a ground down a bit rear foot rest and hand guard. so not bad for sliding down the road for about 20-30 feet.

good to hear you're not too hurt, hope u get well soon mate! and gotta love the KTM's for being able to handle these accidents so well, if it was a superbike u'd probably have to get like 5 new panels and god knows what else to fix!! have a good xmas, eat loads and rest up!!

thanks guys. Smile


yeah pre your so right. if it was draped in go faster plastic it would defo cost an arm and a leg to fix. but luckily ktm's are designed and built to hit the ground hard. the only thing ive done to it since coming off was ride it then wash it. lol
as for me im fine and only have a brused elbow. so im thinking that i must have landed on that then slid on my bum.
ive checked my gear and you wouldn't even know that ive had some slidy fun down the road.


as a side note im sure it would be different story if i was just wearing walkabout clothing.

ive learnt a few things from this so it all good Smile

Hey man sorry to hear. This is the exact reason why i haven't been riding for the past 2 weeks lol. Simply haven't got the money to be replacing all my go faster panels lol. That just shows people though what the protective gear can do. I just bought a full RST Rift Winter jacket and trouser set so hope that holds up well!! Not that im planning to come off lol.

for me, not riding in the winter isn't an option as i dont have a car on the road. also i think my bike gets dropped more on dirt in the summer (im no good on that either). lol

but as redz said its all about the gear. if i just wore walkabout clothing and came off im sure id be in hospital eating grapes.... but with gear i come off have a little laugh get back on and repeat (but not to often lol).
im going to leave the bike as is and come up to the january meet with it. you wouldn't think its been down the road by its self. lol
if i had the go faster panels im sure i would have cried......
