    Laid her down

    So I went down on my NC.
    Around 25mph or so I locked up my front tire and went down.

    My NC came out much better then I did, I slid into a solid stationary object that brought me to a complete stop rib cage first, I busted 13 ribs with 11 being on my right side and lacerated my kidney and lacerated my liver and collapsed the right side of my lung.
    Out of the hospital now with a liver infection and my busted ribs mending.

    I was wearing a full face helmet and riding jacket

    Not really, but I'm just glad it wasn't any worse and I am on the mend.

    While I would have loved that as at least an option with the manual transmission, I just put on my first set of Shinko 705's front and back and never practiced panic stopping with them, I'm used to PR4's so very different handling

    Red face

    Most riders if given the choice on optional (extra cost) ABS will not choose it.

    And as a side note, the term "I laid her down" makes it sound as if you had a choice when in reality you didn't. I taught MSF classes for 16 years and I'd cringe every time a student said that as a rationale for his crash.

    I hope you get over your injuries soon. :-)
