MABDR got the best of me.
Riding MABDR section 5 today in Michaux State forest. I rode it last week no issues. Today I rode the opposite direction and crashed the bike in a corner doing 25-30. It was hard pack gravel forest road. I went a little wide in the corner and hit loose stuff and was down before I knew it. I broke my tibia and fibula on my left leg. That was the worst of it. Pretty much all of it actually. I had all my gear on- helmet, heavy adv jacket, and riding pants. I didn't hit my head but my gear definitely saved me from other injury.
Thankfully there was a guy riding behind (Thank you Bill!) as I was riding by myself. He stopped to help and call 911 and stayed with me until I was inside the ambulance. I don't know what cell service he had but I could hardly get a call out to let my wife know. The whole thing from crash to getting to the hospital was about 1hr 20min since I was in the middle of nowhere.
It was all my fault and entirely preventable. So the lesson here is wear your gear, slow down, never ride alone if you don't have to, and have good communication. I'll definitely be buying a Spot device or something similar.
As for the bike- R1200GS LC- it faired okay all things considered. Mostly rash. Left fairing, front turn signal, and hand guard ripped off. Cylinder head scratched up good as we're other bits. The bike had no protection. No leaks after and it still ran okay.
