Sorry to hear about that, and glad you are ok Vulcan.  I also ride with full protective gear.  Mesh jackets and pants leave few excuses not to wear protection even when it’s hot.  How was your ride after the slide?  Any serious damage?  Could you ride away?

Yes, I managed to ride myself to the emergency room and then to the dealership where, thanks to insurance, the bike received about $2500 in repairs and I got full replacement of my protective gear.  Again, there wasn't much luck involved, but instead LOTS of advance preparation in anticipation of the event.
TCARS, y'all
