Default 35 years and I had my first crash yesterday.

I proved yesterday that two bikes cannot occupy the same spot at the same time.

Don't know how bad she(bike) is yet, I spent a day and a half in hospital. Got broken left thumb, lots of road rash, really sore back, can barely walk, right elbow is hamburger, did face plant on pavement, don't look too good right now.
Feel much worse.

Wow. Thoughts and prayers are with you coolpig, that's no good!

Hope the bike doesn't turn out to be too bad, but, most importantly, hope you don't turn out to bad! That can't feel good.

Let us know how things turn out.

Cool pig just glad to hear you are still kicking, bikes can be fixed or replaced, body parts and life itself are way more important. Rest and heal, prayers are with you.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. Get well soon!

Perhaps when you're read you can share with us the chain of events in hopes someone else might avoid something similar from happening.
