Happy New Year from Cape Cod
Long-time lurker here, roadie, finally registered on the forum. 'Sbeen eighteen days since my beloved Bianchi Eros Donna gave its life to save mine when a car sped through a stop sign and cut me off. Typing one-handed due to a broken finger, and hobbling on a still stiff knee, but grateful it wasn't worse. And looking forward to a new bike (maybe another Donna -- it fit my 5'2" self perfectly, although I haven't decided for sure) and another riding season just around the corner.

Sorry to hear about the accident, but welcome to the forums!
It sounds like you've got a good sense of humor about that accident. Personally, I'd be furious! I hope your new bike is ever the faithful companion, and should you need it, it will gladly place its life down for yours.
What part of the Cape do you live? I have family in Hyannis..
