Finally broke a bone- with link to video

At Alafia river state park near the end of Moonscape. Just a little to fast over a little bump. Helmet did it's job, it's cracked, but my heads ok(unless you ask my wife). Best part was there was almost no pain. I walked out had someone put my bike on my car rack and drove home. New Years Eve I get a couple pins in my left hand and a titanium plate and screws in my right collar bone. I hope none of you get as stoned as I will be on New Years Eve.

Pretty awesome man, nice video. Alafia is on my list of places to visit. I recently went to Balm-boyette near there. Next time back I need to go to Alafia!
