Hope you didn't do to much road burn. I can feel for you. I dropped my Yamaha back in '69 at 70mph on Route 50 in Maryland at 7 am in the morning after hitting a patch of black ice. As it was bloody cold (sub-20's F) I only destroyed about a grand's worth of clothes and cosmetic damages to the bike (well, a bit more than cosmetic, but repairable without costing an arm & a leg or having to use insurance). Wearing a business suit, 3/4 length suede coat, helmet & gloves and a $300 pair of Alligator Tony Lama's! (in '69!). Fortunately, I walked away from it unscathed, only to total it several months later in a head on with a 65 Plymouth Satellite in Ocean City, Md. (which I also walked away from).taxico wrote: then i got into an accident (non-contact controlled braking + sliding without any riding gear except gloves and a shoei full face helmet) in december 2010 and now my wife has banned me from riding all forms of motorcycles in singapore.

Had an old '74 750 Honda Magna for a while here in Singapore, but the wife constantly harping every time I got on it, had be getting rid of it and retiring my helmet for good I guess (unless I do sumtin stupid when I retire back to the US.)
