Yikes!!! A lot of bikers have gone down hitting a lot less... First count your blessings then give your bike a hug and then kick yourself in the ass for not being more attentive! Kidding aside, nice to see you made it through a near disasster.
Rebeltown is right. Many riders have gone down for a lot, lot less....either the gods were with you, you were incredibly lucky, or you a outstanding rider...you choose which
I am sure a quick change of undies was required after you got it on the centrestand.
There is actually something I am trying to understand here...The damage to the rear wheel is quite some more than the front, yet you must have hit the rock with the front first. The marks to the front suggest a 'glancing strike' which must have nearly wrenched the steering from your 1 hand. Yet it is rear rim that sustained the greatest damage.
Therefore, my question is this:
Why so much more deformation to the rear than the front? Does anyone know if the front rim has a greater tensile strength (harder material) than the rear? The only sensible answer that I can come up with is that since the rear rim has a greater width, the bead is more susceptible to bending stresses, as the support is generated from the rim centreline.
Sorry about this,..it is the Engineer in me that keeps raising its ugly head...
Anyway am glad you are ok, a shitty way to end a ride, but better than coming home feet first.
