KonaRider24 will be proud...
...because I crashed hard today. I hadn't crashed like this in 12 years. I was taking a turn, at speed, that I had taken at speed a hundred or so times before. About a quater through the turn, BANG!, the rear tire blows out. The bike slids out from under me, and I slid to a stop. My right shin has considerable road rash. I even left a skid mark off my leg on the road.
I called my wife, and we went to an Urgent Care Center rather then the ER. The deducable was cheaper, and the service tons better. They spent three hours cleaning the wound anfd taking X-rays. Now I get to miss work this weekend, that includes holiday pay lost, and get a nice disciplinary write up for missing peak time work.
I'm catching up to you KonaRider24. Look out, and I'm a roadie!
