Crash report

Well, after a whopping 1,400 miles on my '13 V, I had dog decide to headbutt me while riding at about 40mph! It put me down for 100'+ slide on asphalt that I will not soon forget! I must say that proper riding clothing saved me from serious injury/road rash. Came away pretty good considering. Olympia pants really protected me and the 20 year old Hein Garick jacket also performed very well.
Be safe out there everyone! Bike seems not to bad but need to inspect more thoroughly.

Was the dog just running across the road and you happened along, or did he actually catch you?

That is why you wear gear. No matter how much skill one has, **** happens. Glad you are able to post about it.

A friend was riding ahead of me which got the dogs attention. Hard to tell what dog was doing but looked (blink of an eye) like he started after my friend than saw me but we were going around a left corner where woods abutted the road pretty close so I didn't see dog until pretty much too late. I picked a line and hoped dog would pull up short but instead head butted front fork/wheel at full tilt which sent me skidding
