Had just finished paintballing and was on my way home, first roundabout I go on and I feel the back wheel kick out and before I have time to react it kicks out again and let’s go. I end up sliding across the floor.
I cannot thank the people who helped me enough. Considering some people just drove past me lying on the floor. Had a rapid response unit check me over and I saw another bike nearly lowside as well.
The paramedic said this roundabout always had diesel on it as there is a big petrol station down the road. Then had to do a 40 minute ride home after the crash. My local dealership fixed my forks and brakes for free.
Watching this again I could have gone slower and had less lean angle. But that is easy to say watching it on repeat and with slow motion.
