3rd gear highside coming through Devils Elbow at about 100mph. It was a biggie!

Bloody hell, high side at that speed couldíve been a lot lot worse. 

Was it wet/damp or just too much beans??

Today hasn't ended well.

On way to hospital now with a broken collarbone.
Bike is obliterated.

Many many thanks to Steve for being a legend of a man and apologies for ruining your day as well.
How bad is obliterated?
I have some spares for sale from gen 1 if itís getting repaired. Lights plastics etc.
Hope you get well soon

Never good when a bike diggs in and flips  :003:. Get your self mended and then get the bike assessed. Hopefully the Forks frame swing arm will be ok, should easily be to source the other bits

Thatís such a shame Mark, especially as youíd just set up your bike as you wanted it. At least you seem to have gotten away relatively lightly from what sounds like a pretty nasty incident. Get well soon.

Glad I could be of help and yes you were very lucky. There was a single front indicator that was not damaged. Took a few photos! Scary!

Sounds as though you were lucky to come away with just the collarbone break. Hope you're well on the mend. Better the bike obliterated than you.

Ugh, thatís a bummer for sure.  Good to hear itís just a collar bone and nothing serious. Hopefully a speedy recovery for you.
I picked up one of those Helite GP vest as added insurance for my track days this summer.

Let us know how you like it. Seems like a good idea.
