Right before last Labor Day,ironically to check out a gun store, I was riding on SR95 through Marion,~ 25mph and wrecked my V-Rod when a car stopped ahead of me. I looked down at my gauges and when I looked up;there she was stopped waiting to turn into a side street. Avoided hitting her car but locked the Brembo brakes on my VRSCR and low-sided the bike,throwing me from it.
Fortunately,this one time, I listened to my intuition and put on my helmet and armored mesh jacket. I slid head first into the curb and ended up with minor abrasions to both knees, bruised chest and hip and a light concussion(3rd time I've had one) and what I first thought was a bruised shoulder but later was diagnosed as a broken collar bone.
I rode another 80 miles before heading home. Endorphins are good !
I'll be 65 this year...I'm getting too old for this falling off motorcycles crap.<--not the noun I'd usually use.
Didn't call an ambulance,since I was armed as usual and didn't want to deal with trying to have someone take custody of my firearm. Nice to see the LEO in your case handled it the way he did.
Heal up & get back on .
