After reading Lynn's story I had to tell mine. But, technically not a crash - I think.

2 Saturdays ago: I was making a left turn from a stop onto Standerfer Gap rd and found some gravel.

The rear end did a slide to the right - heard the scrapeing of pegs etc - LT picked itself up almost high-siding me - handlebars shook hard - and I rode away. Not a crash - because bike is not laying on ground.

But -- shifting was painful and later X-ray showed a broken Fibula (small bone)

Questions remain:

1. Did I crash?
2. Can you do this on a Goldwing without the crash part? (tell Motorcyclist!)
3. How did I get it back on the centerstand?
4. Will I sell out?

I am ok and back to work - thought I was going to make Ironhorse but alas!

I hope the Spring reunion is not on the same week end as AMA at Barber. Later

Sorry to hear that John...I was wandering what happen to you that you didn't make SMFR....

Absolutely not! Awesome save. Although most saves just happen they aren't really performed. Usually a result from just riding it out.

Sorry you jammed your leg though, bound to happen.

Some may say if you would have let it go down you may only be bruised.

I think you have the right instincts.

Heal quickly.
