Recovering from a wreck is truly scarier than the wreck itself.
Back in 1983 I made a left turn on my GPz550 - something happened and the bike went down. Felt the front end going instant before it did. But the funny thing is I was on post (Ft. Campbell, KY) doing about 25 mph and had made that same turn literally dozens of times before at the same speed with no problems. I could not turn left without apprehension for at least a year after that!
