glad you are not seriously injured, keeping your skin in original condition, although a slightly looser fit for comfort is a good thing, now what could have been done to prevent/mitigate it? correct tire pressure for better braking? riding guarded? increased folllowing distance? Sometimes the laws of physics are gonna smack you but if you can teach me anything from your mishap I would be most grateful!

The answer to "how could I prevent a crash" is almost always "go more slowly" and/or "increase follow distance". Crashes that cannot be avoided by doing one or both of these are exceedingly rare.

And "failure to yield". But if you ride your motorbike like everybody else on the road is trying to kill you, then you'll probably do the right thing.
