    That explains how the mud got jammed behind the speedo bracket & how your handlebar mounted camera case bit the dust :confused:

    Amazing how well the bike came out of that with so little damage!
    Don't believe they make top crash protectors to deal with that! :joy:

    And that's how I'll leave it.
    Is it just me or are the black round rubber things supposed to on the bottom side? :p

    Ah well no harm done Bad Billy, a lesson learnt the hard way, off the brakes and drop the shoulder.
    Your not the first or last to fall off at Donnington.
    Two mates having a dice earlier this year. Front CBR 1000 chased by a GSXR 750 and about four laps in.

    Oops!

    Wouldn't have happened if he had a Bonneville?

    A) They don't do 126mph
    B) He'd have been drinking tea in the paddock area. Whilst boring everybody with stories of his 1921 side valve Flying Flap :cool:

    The guy riding the GSXR (camera bike) came off there about 10 years ago. Funny enough he was on another GSXR 750 then and when the pegs run out of tarmac they heavily dug into the grass.
    Scrape
    Boom
    Bang
    Wow
    Ooh :worried:

    There weren't much left intact but fortunately other than a few carpet burns he got away with it.
    We inspected it once home in the garage and after about 10 seconds it was declared scrap and subsequently sold for bits.

    Then there was the R1, the ZX6, GSXR 1000, Honda C90 (with me on the back o_O:confounded:) etc. think you get the idea but they're another story :joy:
