wreck memory

Riding my hot rod R69S with dustbin fairing, rearsets,cam driven tach, original paint, lady ran light, I stood up and said OhS--t, landed 80 down street in ditch. broken femur, 504 stitches. don't remember flying or landing, never passed out. A week in hospital. Been riding since I was 11, I was 48 when I wrecked, 64 how, was only off a bike for 6 weeks, repaired the bike with good original paint parts, a buddy peiced the fairing back together, still riding it. My wife of 44 years was really supportive and knows that riding and restoring are my passion. If you are not comfortable, take some time away from it, for me motorcycling is theripy.
