June 8th I crashed my ninja

The crash was 100% my fault. I was fatigued with a million and one things on my mind. Which means I should not have been on the bike. I even left out without my jacket.
I ended up running wide on an entrance ramp to a bypass.I was running about 70 on speedometer (63 +/- actual) as I left asphalt onto grass and chert. I made a second mistake at that point and grabbed me a bunch of brake. The front wheel tucked under and the bike went down hard. I on the other hand tumbled about 75'. I would hear a whack as my head, shoulder and right arm made contact..then I would see sky, then whack. Its one of those turns that keeps getting tighter. I use this ramp regularly at the same speeds with no problems.
I and the bike came out much better than we could have. I had a broken finger two broken ribs and some road rash and assorted bruises. Probably would have lost finger if not for gloves.
The bike ended up with a bent right handle bar, broken right peg mount, brake lever broken, brake pedal mangled, and several breaks on all plastics on right side

Sucks that you crashed, but I'm glad you weren't badly hurt. How you feeling?

I'm good now. Actually I've been healed up and bikes been on the road more or less for about 3 weeks. Didn't want to post until I had most of the adjustments made.
Here is a picture of my finger less than 2 hours after the crash and the helmet I was wearing. The face shield came off on about the third or fourth impact.

Yep- that's why we wear gear. And full-face helmets. Mine had scratches on the visor- would have been my face in a beanie-helmet.

Thanks I am very thankful I wasn't injured any more than I was. Helmet definitely did its job very well. I am pretty sure I will stick with Scorpion brand for my helmets. I wish I had been wearing my jacket, I have left out on bike maybe three times without it on. Was not a good day to run off without it. I have had a few surgeries on my hands, I firmly believe if I hadn't been wearing good gloves I would have had another at the least. My right hand was between the handle bar and ground when the bar was bent.

Happy to hear that you at least wore your helmet and gloves that day. Looks like they definitely helped you out.
