A Motorcycle Crash and Some Good Samaritans

Source: Conan UK, “Bike Crashes on Roundabout.” YouTube. 24 November 2013

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.
