Sorry to hear about the accident, but glad you were able to make it home, Ilia.  I'm sure social media will come through, if not, karma will sort 'em out.  From now on, I'm always bringing the camera on rides...  :20:

Pic of the new bike:



Test rode the FZ-10 and Tuono.  The FZ was nice and rode well, but it's a little soft in the lower RPMs.  The Tuono was also nice and that V-4 sounded great, the problem with that was the sample I rode was having fueling issues and it stalled 3 times taking off from a light.  Not very reassuring.

I'm sticking with the propellor brand and Irv Seaver hooked me up with a deal I could not refuse.  To prevent premature failure, I have frame sliders on order!  :29:

I'm glad you had it looked at. I have to say looked worse in person than the pictures. No camera on Sunday but will make an effort to keep it on bike from now on.

TC you are now one of us, http://www.s1000r.co.uk/ for more info than you could need on your new bike.

Does anyone have a description of the rider that was in the middle of the corner?

RDTodd - if you talk to IQZero can you ask about the bike/rider that was there?

P.S. Dashcam, permanent - yes.

 By the way, Doug, have you had camera filming on Sunday ?

glad you're not too busted up but still sucks. I have the Innov K1 camera system w/ front and rear cameras. Always on when bike is on.  sometimes I also have my contour cam on my helmet.  lots of good options out there.
If you are offended by my posts that's your problem

I have two Innovv C3 "snake" cameras (front/rear facing) on my 01 VFR and generic "flashlight" cameras on my commuter VFR. In both cases they turn on and off with the ignition, so no "forgetting" to turn them on. Although the only issue with these cameras is that the largest Micro-SD card they accept is 32GB so clearing out the video after rides is kind of a must.

Although most of the video gets tossed, it's great to have if you witnessed something and want to know what it was or what happened.

Hope you heal up quick IQZero and hope they can find the guy who ran off.
