Glad you're Ok!
The way you describe the events leading to the crash, something seems weird to me.
I"m definitely not calling you out, or saying in any way that you didn't describe exactly what you had thought occurred.
Was at least one of your riding partners passing with you? It almost seems to me that someone clipped your rear wheel, causing you to go down, etc. Again, I have no idea- I wasn't there, etc.
Again, I'm not in any way trying to degrade your riding skills, etc. Or your riding buddies, I'm sure they're good to.
But thinking about the physics involved, momentum, the way you described it, it would be really hard for your rear wheel to go out like that- even if you were cutting the curve out, curve in really hot and hard.
I could be way off, and I don't mind if I am.
Again, I'm not trying to prove anything, nor say anything negative about your skills or story.
And, I'm really glad you were fully geared up- are are OK!
** Edit- It's amazing to me, just how many K5/6 LiterBikes with less than 20K miles on them, in nearly perfect shape there still are around for sale!!! Blows me away- but that's not going to happen forever
