Ouch ! Unlike many a four wheel whoopsie these do tend to hurt a bit. Lack of power in dodgy overtaking manoeuvre resulted in a big off, I think the major front end damage occurred after most of the speed was scrubbed off, down to about 80, and contact was made with the verge, ditch, hedge, telegraph pole and ploughed field. Regular strides give us around 60 metres from initial bale out to rest. The solution to this sluggish overtaking performance came in the form of a GSXR 1100, with around 125 horse straight out of the showroom these buggers wiped the floor at IOM proddy races the year the bike came out, unfortunately the GSXR bit the dust too, high speed tank slapper (to which the steering geometry left them a bit prone). I'm off to rummage the archive for more bike stuff.
