I went down during rush hour in Rochester, NY, on my way to work last Friday
evening. I guess I grabbed too much front brake, and flew off the bike at about 35-40 mph (?). Kind of in shock to really remember it all. The driver behind me stopped traffic with his pickup, and helped me off the road. I was well cared for by construction workers, and a number of other good people.
God bless them all. Three broken ribs, a lot of bruises, and road rash, (through my jeans). I feel very thankful.

Chaps will be on my new list of riding apparal.

Damn, Don!!! Glad you're OK - get yourself healed up. Wish we could meet under better circumstances, but let me know if you need a hand working on the bike - I'm in Webster.

Thanks to Everyone

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. Pretty much on the mend, road rash takes the most time, it seems.

On the bright side, got my insurance check, and the bike is in for repairs.

Don
