Thanks for all the responses, best wishes, advice.

Dogsroot, the K bikes I think will be too top heavy for me. And methinks I may have had worse foot injury with a K bike. The boxer portrusions gave some protection.

The Ducati, yeah, I drool for suchs bikes, but suspect I will kill myself with suchs a thing.

Anyway, I drool more over Airheads.

I was leaned well over. As I said I ride spirited, slightly more so on this particular day. That particular turn is usually taken at 40mph+. I do recall the bike not falling over much after grabbing front brake.

ABS, fabulous additional safety device that it is, cannot compensate for stupidity. Stupidity was the reason for my faceplant.

It wasn`nt the speed that hurt......It was the sudden stop!

I am the religious type, and I thank God for another chance to ride.

Mike
