In the interest of testing the safety of a loaded gun with one in the chamber

I crashed my bike today!!

It was way early in the morning, dark, I was somewhere I hadnt been before and took a turn on some newly applied very smooth and wet Asphalt.

Probably only going about 25mph BUT

I was wearing an M&P 2.0 40S&W at the apendix and slide along on then rolled over the gun. The base plate of the mag took some road rash, the part at the bottom rear of the grip that holds the grip of choice in place took road rash, my bike took road rash and so did I.

I am happy to report that even after falling from about 5' up .. I ride an adventure bike so its pretty tall, hitting the ground on my belly/gun and then sliding rather silly like while making clockwise rotations ...

My doodle is still intact. I did not shot it off nor did I blast a hole in my femoral. Gun .. while it took some scraps to replaceable parts .. never went off.

Edit to add
+10 to Fierce defender holsters!!

Rule number one - don't fall.

Modified for your use later - don't fall again...

Glad it all went reasonably well for you.

How's the bike? \_(?)_/

ATGATT. When I ride I wear All The Gear All The Time. Sorry about your get-off, but very glad it was any worse. And glad a 40 cal. bullet didn't ricochet off your nut sack. That'd water one's eyes and potentially leave a welt.

Bike took some dings but it was mostly one saddle bag. Chewed all to hell but at least its a replaceable part!! Rode the bike home about 30 miles with my brake lever in an awkward position and my right side mirror pointed at the sky but it all fixed up pretty easy.

Take out the air brush later to do a little touch up on the crash bars and she is good to go.

That's great news. Guessing the bag lid took the hit? What bike is it and is the lid a replaceable lid [presuming a side opener] or are you going to just do what you can a move on with it as is?

Glad it's just a couple raspberries on your end...

The bag is a swing out design .. I am glad the bike came with them but .. I never loved them and prefer the aluminum. However .. they did stop the bike from getting more serious, costly, damage. I am going to try and sand it out some and then gently touch it with a heat gun to smooth it over and when I have beaten them up some more I will put on the aluminum ones I am hot for.

Took a little paint off the muffler but its just high heat paint so I can touch it up. a little scrap to the aluminum muffler shield. The handguards did what they were supposed to but got beat up in the process but my hands were unscathed. Luckily the bike is kind of designed to go over sometimes so none of the paint was touched.

and

THE GUN DIDNT GO OFF!!

The bike is kind of built to be a do it all on and "sometimes" off road ride so like jeeps .. they look OK with some minor love marks.

This is the third time in 42 years riding that I have kissed the pavement .. guess I was due!!

Ditto on the ATGATT. Several years ago I was doing an Iron Butt attempt -- Canadian border to Mexican border in 24 hours -- and while rounding a bend near Coalinga, California I hit a big patch of grease that had spilled from a truck. My scooter was officially totaled (although I managed to get it zip-tied together enough to make it back to Seattle before the insurance company took it), but I was fine. A good helmet and a Kevlar jacket saved me from what almost certainly would have been "a bad thing."
