@Shop-Teacher I did have my helmet on. I haven't checked to see if it has any damage on it yet.

@bbg2d bummer to hear, but glad you got it out of your system. There is a movie about planes and one of my favorite quotes is "you'll always make mistakes flying, but never stop learning from them."
I like to think it applies to a lot of things. Motorcycles included.

@HFV ouch! Glad you and the bike are mostly okay though.
I went down on a dirt bike more times than I can count growing up so I can hopefully count those for a few more years at least and stay upright on pavement.

@HFV Welcome to the club buddy! I'm glad you don't have the roadrash as proof of your membership!

All in all it could have been worse but it also could have been completely avoided if I’d just been paying attention.
That was a cheap lesson, really.
Similar low speed crash was coming back from a girlfriend's house in the semi-dark early morning after a storm. I didn't see the downed power line stretched across the road at neck level until I was about 20 feet away at 30 mph. Just pure reflex slammed the rear brake and down I went. But sliding underneath the power line was the correct move!

@HFV Good! Mine took a big shot when I wrecked. Be careful for the next week or so, because it weirdly took like five days before I had concussion symptoms. Thankfully they were mild, although I am actually still experiencing them. I'm seeing a vestibular therapist tomorrow to hopefully work my way out of not feeling dizzy everytime I lay down or get out of bed. It only lasts for a few seconds, but it's REALLY getting old.

@Shop-Teacher Looking at my helmet, I don't think my head hit the ground at all. No new dents or scraps at all.
Still gonna get a new one tho, my helmet is 5 years old and took a good knock once while snowmobiling. Plus I've been wanting a new one anyway.
Also I found a new speedo, and cable for 80 buck shipped, so now i'll just need to bend the headlight bracket back.

@HFV That's good! Good call getting a new lid anyways though, just from age. $80 ain't too bad for damage.
