American Legion Rider
I wish I could remember the exact cause of my crash. I accept full responsibility as I know I was pushing my limits as well as the tires limits in the rain I was riding in. But I'd sure like to know what I did or the tires did. I highly suspect I chopped the throttle because the last thing I saw was a blur of a yellow warning sign. But 70mph in frog choking rain the the twisties isn't brilliant to start with so that's on me. But I'd been riding like that for over 30 minutes. However, I had not hit a blind "S" turn in that 30 minutes either. Cresting a hill and suddenly realizing I was already in the first part of the turn I'd bet money I chopped the throttle. But I darn near made it looking at the scene latter. 5 feet more of road instead of a 15 foot deep ditch might have worked but I'll never know. Could yellow goldwing guy have done the same? I was knocked out for at least 45 minutes. That's why I have no memory of the actual crash I'm sure. My first 3 days in the hospital was in intensive care due to the concussion. But I was at fault no matter what. I could have said sand had washed into the road like goldwing guy. That would help no one.
