    How you do that? Wear high-viz?

    Crashing sucks, glad to hear you were not maimed. "Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement."

    Do you know the guys from Infamous 508?

    As the CC's go up mistakes are easier and happen faster with less forgiveness. Welcome and stay safe. At least you know your limit and have learned.

    So, lowside?

    If you walked away from a 60mph crash that totaled your helmet, you lead a charmed life.

    FWIW - While I didn't hit the car "head on", I hit their front tire while it was coming at me (TOTALLY my fault). I was doing AT LEAST 50-60. My helmet was literally torn apart and I walked away. Although it took about a month before I could get my leg over another bike...

    WAY in over my head cornering / sharp corner / car coming from the opposite direction / I basically hit the wheel instead of head on into the bumper. Hit it so hard I knocked the tire off the wheel and damaged their wheel...
