We all have them. Or will. A crash. An off. Highside, lowside, fixation, rearend, car cuts you off, or even cold tires (Snowblade ;))
If you have some pictures or videos, put 'em up.
Only rule is - You gotta have a picture or video. No novels.

The pics I have of my crash at Mid Ohio are pretty minor compared to these. I went off at turn 9. Bike stayed on the right side in the gravel and so minimized the damage. I got it back to the garage and rode it the rest of the day after much duct taping and safety wiring until a large section of the underside of the fairing came off and I got black flagged.

Full of fail here... brisk Saturday morning... Crash was caused by rider error. About 1:16 is when it gets good.

Started the ride was still a bit groggy. Notice I was fighting against the lean. I've been on that corner thousands of times before going faster. I usually have much better body positioning but that day I didnt...

Not to mention im 6'0, was 270 at the time on a Ninja 500 with decent tires. They were Battle axes. 130 rear tire. That was also the first time I ever dragged peg so I was spooked. The line re-position was fine and not what caused the accident.

That sucks, glad you're ok after that one. I've seen people get pretty messed up by guardrails.

Yeah. The pegs on the 500 sit real low. I feel much better on the 929 even though I've got dirty bike bars on it.

The camera is a GoPro 2.
