I'm a Paramedic Fire Fighter. Your video made me nauseated. I've been in this business for 20+ years and have done and seen many things but it still gets to me if I'm present to watch an accident occure. Arriving after is easy but to witness is a different emotion. So glad your okay. I crashed in September with an easy front slide out, I got whipped into the ground so fast, I had no idea until I hit the ground. Outcome was # clavicle, disco big toe, and 3 broken bones in my foot. I certainly can relate to the WTF feelings you get from the joy of riding to reality of the new situation. I thought for sure I had punctured my lung and contemplated my discomfort on using my leatherman, hand sanitizer and air gauge housing to re-inflate it, in the end I luckily did not need to do that.
I'm now healed, metal plate 8 screws and some chicken wire in the shoulder. LOL, all heals with time. Looking forward to July a group of us going to do the CBDR. Fun fun.
Blessings to you
Mike
