I hit a railroad track wrong somehow at about 60 mph, the front of the bike went nuts, I couldn’t control it. Hit the pavement and the the bike slid with me under it about 250′, which felt like forever.I feel sore all over, thumb and knee tweaked, lots of bruises and a half inch of road rash on my wrist. I can look at my gear and thank God I had it on. The bikes damage is the fairings, the shifter, the bar and more, but it ran.I was alone, it took about fifteen minutes for anyone to pass, then a couple bikers helped me get the bike up and it ran, so I rode it from Lakeland to Brandon, with the fairing strapped to the seat, alone and slowly.
