Glad you'r okay, and also think it's great you won't stop riding.

Do you remeber hearing the tire Pop? are you shure it wasn't one of those dreaded bearing failures?

Keep on riding, and hope you don't abandone us here on PArallel Universe, you're one of the good few
Well, no pop. I felt the rubber roll off of the tire [edit: or at least what felt like a roll off the tire]. I knew in the first second that this was a non-recoverable event. My first thought was to stay straight and to coast it to a stop on the rim. But after the dive to the left I was busy staying on top and keeping it from crossing into the opposite lanes. My mind's replay is like watching a movie plane crash from the cockpit. Suddenly the ground came up and the plane nosed in.

Keep riding? I've already secured my next mount.

See you on the high ground!
