When following people through the curves I am always amazed at how much more they can lean before hard parts touch, compared with how far I think I am leaning. Pushing the bike deeper into the curve when needed should be our go to reaction, and I know it wasn't my first reaction for a long time.Hoping for no long term issues with you or the bike.
Sorry to hear about this John. I was in the same predicament a couple years ago. A split second of inattention and I was a bit wide in a tight curve. Would've been recoverable except for fresh pea gravel that collected on the outside of the curve. Pretty much the same as you after that. My riding buddy that was behind me still makes fun of that get off just to make sure I never forget.
I didn't clean the scratches off the valve cover for a couple of years to remind myself how stupid I was.
Thanks all for the supportive comments. Back home and have had a dip in the hot tub and some liquid pain killers. T-3 may have to stay in the back of the truck for a few days until my left hand can deal better with the clutch. GliderJohn
Jeeez, lucky it wasn’t your right hand..!

Here too, glad you are OK. One reason there are no gadgets on my bikes, no music either. I tell my wife if she needs music whistle.
No excuses as in most airplane crashes it was not just one thing but a chain of events, all of which could have been avoided.
