Hi all, I'm new to the forum.
I was hoping to get some expert advise on a previous mishap. I have just started riding again after coming off my bike last year. I had a Daytona 600 (and have now bought another, since my last accident dented my frame). I don't want to be making any mistakes again if it was myself to blame.
So, tyres on the bike weren't very well rated for wet conditions and it had been a light drizzle of rain that morning, 2 minutes into my journey so tyres were cold. I filtered through some traffic on a roundabout (bare in mind I'm in the UK so left side riding) turning right off the roundabout. Filtering left out of the roundabout and the road has another small bend left after the turn.
I am straightening up out of my lean and apply the throttle, next thing the bike slams hard on it's right side, crushing my leg and proceeding to slide down the road with the bike. In the wreckage I found a chunk of a suspension spring, which wasn't from my bike, so I've always blamed this for taking me off the bike, assuming I hit it.
I am struggling to understand why the bike slammed on its right side though, if I made an error would it not have low sided to the left? I would appreciate any help understanding what went on so that I don't end up in the same position.
