I Agree. I obviously outpaced my common sense. And paid the price. I'm lucky I came out with such relatively light injuries.

What the hell, I went down at 20mph into a guard rail and I got more damage on me... thank god you didn't hit one of those, can't imagine how much meat you would lose if a bolt or something caught you at 40mph...

Guard rail probably would have killed me. No joke. Just the impact would have probably done it. The bike ended up on the side of the highway and I rolled off the road as fast as I could, before the next car came around the corner. I thought I was going to get run over after surviving the crash. I would say it is very likely I used up my entire allowance of luck for the forseeable future. God gave me a break on this one.

Went to the doctor for increasing chest pain...Add fractured ribs, and 4 to 6 weeks recovery to the injuries. This just keeps getting worse and worse. ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGG!!!! My fast bike is still being repaired too. Can I get a little pity? A little cheese with my whine, maybe? And I had ripped out my stitches early to allow me to shift gears too.
