I wore my helmet last night, but I still got hurt eating SO MUCH SOUP!!!

Funny FBM how you and I are some of the few who still dress like we're racing! Like a smart one told me years ago, "dress for the wreck, not for the ride"!

"dress for the wreck, not for the ride"![/quote]


thats what i'm talking about, i was the best rider by far today then i hit the ground and realized....i suck.
the best thing about going fast is you have more time to plan your impact while you're flying thru the air!

had i not been protected i'm sure i would not be writing this now, yes my left shoulder hurts like hell but i was able to ride myself home.
be safe and wear this stuff, it really was put to the test today and it helps.

Glad to hear you rode away thanks to ATGATT
