I've had 2 big accidents in my life. Once in a cage when I was 16 back in the 80's and once on a bike 11/30/2011.
I guess I'm lucky because I have no memory of either of them at the critical part.
Last one, I got a new bike on 12/5/11 and was on my way. Couldn't wait to get back on a bike.
I've had a couple flats but never catastrophic. The last one I felt the bike acting strange and had 11psi and a nail... after a ride on the freeway. Maybe the stiff sidewalls saved the day.
