Going around the A244/A3 roundabout towards Esher this afternoon when a BMW M3 decided to take the slip road for the A3 and cut straight in front of me…left me with no choice but to try and take the slip road too but unfortunately I couldn’t make it and so my rear wheel clipped the kerb and threw my off and into a fence.
Luckily I’m OK apart from a sore shin, knee and thigh and a bit of a graze/scratch on my neck where my jacket ended and helmet started.
As for damage, my helmet is a write off but my Rev’It! leathers and gloves are virtually unscathed as are my Sidi boots…lots and lots to be said for the quality of my kit.
The bike has a broken screen, smashed front mudguard, mangled rearset, scratched tank and my front wheel/handlebars don’t line up anymore…
It could have been a lot worse gaz mate - lucky you didn’t hit anything hard and immovable like a lampost. Glad to hear your ok mate and that it wasn’t more serious. Sorry about the bike - that is a bummer - but it sounds like it can be repaired.
