First I would like to thank everyone for the words of support I’ve gotten after my mishap last Wednesday. They were exactly what I needed to hear and have helped me from feeling like a complete idiot for crashing after only 3,650 miles on the new bike.
I’m working on a much longer post on what actually happened, but I haven’t finished it yet. For now I was going to list my injuries, as minor as they seem, it’s nice to have a record of everything for my future reference if nothing else.
Even though the crash was a lowside crash it was nearly a highside and only thanks to experience and Traction Control was it not. Which means I came down relatively hard on my left side. My knee took the brunt of the impact (again, yeah the one that was shattered the last time I crashed). Not wanting to be left out I have a good bruise on my hip as well, and my shoulder is also sore and perhaps bruised but I can’t tell with my tattoo.
My gear withstood the crash well, all of it seems minimally impacted except for my left glove. It has a small tear in the palm and I’m not sure if I could count on it again in a crash, and certainly not a serious one.
Thanks again to all the supportive comments on my last post. I’m healing and riding again already. I’ll post more updates as I have time.
