    bailed again

    If you had broke the spokes, it would be a bit of a problem.

    Bent spokes, however... that's nothing.

    OOOH, that sounds nasty! It must of been freakin' painful! What were you doing that you wiped out that bad on?


    No one in this world can be perfect, therefore practice makes experienced.
