Glad you're OK, yeah sure does shake you up.

I hit some Kentish tarmac a month ago - was lying on the road in the same second I realised I was in trouble.

Might take a little time for the bumps and stiffness to take hold - lets hope you'll escape all of that, and the bike isn't damaged.

Sorry to hear about your off. I managed to keep mine shiney side up for 5-6 years then fell off three times in the space of 2.
I'm a bit taller and embarrassingly heavier - It's still quite a heave to lift her up though.
Managed to escape with scuffs to the bike and my leathers. My speeds ranged from 5mph to about 50mph. On the way back from Surf & Turf a diddery auld yin pulled out in front of me - fortunately I saw it coming and slowed right down. Right of way means hee-haw anyway as I'd rather have slowed and let someone cut across that enjoyed my right of way all the way up until I hit them.

All praise the crash bung!

Cheers
