Fox News Coverage of Honda Valkyrie High Side Crash
High side caused by hard braking from nearly 100 mph - sharp curve at the crest of a hill. Good thing I was wearing flip-flops, shorts and didn't have on a helmet. Bike flipped 25 feet away from the curb but "luckily" I was thrown over 40 feet. I lay unconscious 12 hours before a construction worker finds me. The reason nobody found me or the bike is because this was a brand new dead-end road for a yet to be built subdivision.
