Ouch! You know it's serious when there's no swearing when the bike's down, just silence. Looked like a thorny landing too. Were you on your own?
Get well soon.
Simon.

Oh dear... This is what I have to look forward to when I first get my bike off road?

Hope you and the bike are both OK

 Good video with a bit of action, the cut off tree stumps are just waiting to break a foot in the worst possible way, dragging the foot under the peg, I know a guy that did that & smashed up his foot really bad...

 

Are you running a standard clutch or a recluse clutch ? Where is the camera mounted....Ah so many questions

I thought it must have been a rekluse, would be good on uphills as it won't stall but downhills could be a worry. It it slipping ?

there is a bit of slip as I'm not hard on the gas,,, to tight... once the revs are up it locks solid...

I never have used the engine brakeing on down hills... the engine dosn't know what the
rear wheel is doing..but I do.. i can control the rear brake/wheel better than any motor...

yes it's the tracks at the waimak...
we should go for a ride when the wheather gets warmmer...

I use engine braking as well as both brakes, major front brake on downhill & in fact in the Victorian High country the downhills were so steep the brake disc's had a hint of blue & too hot to touch, rear wheel chatter and all. !!!!!

Sorry to invade your party

Definitely up for a ride. I've been heading out to the Waimak most every fine weekend for a several weeks now.
