Earlier this year I had a low side crash on my Triumph Sprint. I was making my way around the roundabout (traffic circle) just down the road from my office heading home for the day. As I was completing the circle which I do on a regular basis I noticed I was very low to the ground. It was about this time that I realized I was too low and was about to low side. It felt like it happened very slowly as I thought “well I’m about to slide” and then I was.
I was unhurt in the crash and no one else was involved save for the kind person in the truck behind me who hopped out and helped me pick up the bike. I was able to ride the bike home from there without issue. I was unhurt because I wasn’t going fast and I was wearing all my riding gear. My pants were torn, my jacket only scratched and I thought that was the extent. Once home though I found my new-ish Dianese Fulcrum boots had not fared so well.
