How long has it taken some of you folks to shake the shakes?
I crashed in 09 when my bike cartwheeled at 55mph and threw me head over heels. Despite what some claim, not all accidents are avoidable. I rolled quite a ways before stopping. Bike was a write-off. So was my helmet. I was riding again as soon as I could buy a new bike. No issues.

There's a video floating around, several actually, one was linked here on ADV, of a dirt bike being ridden over a pretty damned big pond all the way over to the opposite shore. NOT ridden THOUGH the pond, ridden OVER the water. Yup, motorcycles never hydroplane!
