Had a wreck last Thursday. For some unfathomable reason I grabbed my front brake lever while off the seat and standing up, did an endo (sp?), and then landed in the middle of the road while everybody was trying to figure out how the hell I wrecked when there was nothing I could possibly have ran into. Needless to say, I am very, very happy that I was wearing a helmet. I don't think I'll EVER ride without my helmet. If I didn't have that thing on I'd probably have some brain damage. I did land on my right side and managed to hurt my arm pretty bad, doc said it's just tissue damage, no breaks or fractures.
Just thought I'd share my little incident w/y'all.
