Prayers go out to your friend. Took me 40yrs. before it happened avoiding a T-bone @50mph. No gear or helmet(my bad), and a 'get off' at that speed, I was very fortunate with dislocated shoulder, five stitches in forehead and tons of pavement burn, considering I went 135ft. and the scoot after down went 325ft. That was four yrs. ago on my Honda ST. Remember, the more years of riding, the better the chances of this happening....at least once...........it's not 'if'.......just 'when'..........BTW, it's ATGATT for me no matter what the weather conditions may be.
