Glad you're ok. Sorry about the bike but, it can be repaired.

Ice is a possibility or oil. With only 22 miles on the bike, it could also be that the coating on your new tires wasn't worn off yet. Tire companies use a "coating" to help remove the tire from the molds.

Usually, Motorcycle shops will warn you to take it easy in corners until that coating is worn off.

Could have been a combination too.

Take it really easy once you get it back on the road for a while until you're sure that that coating is scrubbed off.

Yes, heated grips are DA Bomb! ;-)

Noooooooooo, I really don't like to hear things like this.

I don't know how often it happens that side of the pond but here diesel is a prime suspect, any damp/tar/diesel mix is prime suspect, there's a garage near me on a roundabout that is always covered in the stuff, vehicle's fill up then it spills out as they set off round the bend. Its bloody hard to see too.

I recall the editor of Motorcycle Consumer News, Dave Searle, crashing an FJR press bike once. Like Redfish there was no warning and he was not riding aggressively at the time - it was a completely out of the blue surprise. Conditions were good and the road was clean. I think he said it happened just as he touched the rear brake pedal, but had not yet really applied any braking pressure. Dave rides a lot of bikes and I think this is the only one I recall him crashing on the street

It was a bit dicey for me driving into work today at -5C or 23F. Going to take the 4 wheeler in tomorrow after hearing about this.
Glad you didn't get to banged up. I bet the pride is in worse shape than the bike.
Get well soon and keep us in the loop.

Oh no!

Sorry to hear about your incident. Those rib injuries hurt a lot for quite awhile.
I hope you a speedy recovery! Stay away from people who make you laugh.
Keep us updated and hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
