Re: Well, they finally got me
Bummer. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't. Could have been a whole lot worse, you arrived alive and thats what counts.
Hope you heal well in a timely manner.
I went down on my left side back in '78 from loose gravel in a curve, maybe 25 mph or so. Landed on my elbow. Picked it up and rode home, next day had a very sore shoulder. Next month going to finally have it fixed. Seems when I hit, the cushion between the bones, in this case the collar bone and whatever one it is connected to, got squished out and all these years its been bone on bone. Not looking forward to the surgery but looking forward to having a shoulder that works without pain.
Come on down the North Carolina and I'll show you some nice roads, not the Dragon or the BRP either.
Hey, it stopped raining and the sky is clearing, I'm going for a ride.
