Fall Down; Go Boom

Well, I guess it was bound to happen. I fell down today. Top of the helmet was scratched along with a portion of the visor. My right-knee is skinned pretty badly. I was lucky to be wearing my leather jacket.

Lesson learned. Do not leave transparent "Rubbermaid" boxes lying around in your garage. If you do, provide some lighting so you can see...I tripped over the box while walking to my bike this morning. I feel battered and briused. I cannot imagine what it will feel like falling from a moving motorcycle!

Along the same line of thought, I like this...


They say falling off waterskis at 100mph is like hitting concrete.
What does hitting concrete at 100mph feel like?

Yeah, I been there, done that, have the scars.
I just like the line because it helps people to realize the gravity of what happens.

Yea I went down today on racers road. My gear saved my life. To give you an idea, I broke my foot cause the only piece of gear I was missing is track boots. Broke nothing else cause I had my gear. My pride hurts too. Sigh time to rest and recover.
