Forgot to check this. I was supposed to have lunch with friends but they had to cancel. I guess I'll be heading out the door shortly. Maybe I'll run into one of you.

Went to store to buy oil, topped off oil, filled up the tank and then started to drizzle after all of 10 miles and I went home.

Been there done that, did your gas bottle explode when you crashed? and let's hear the story about how it wasn't your fault! Let me know if you need any help with anything :-)

Laugh my fault

Did not have rolle pac on, so no chance for Msr to explode. ha! ha! Rode all morning on woods single trac, some challenging creek crossings, steep climbs...........
Went out in afternoon in wide open field, was riding a wheelie...... not sure what happened, but hit ground helmet first, followed by shoulder. ribs hurt worse than shoulder, but together was a pretty good 1-2 punch. Spent 5 1/2 hours in hospital (to see a questionable doctor) for 5 minutes. Said it was a bad break, but a clean one, so hopefully no surgery. will have to see my orthopedic guy at UVA to confirm.
so yes, totally my fault!
Lesson learned, you may need to pop front wheel up over logs,creek banks... but not for the fun of it.

Hey, I just saw this. That sucks, trust me I know. Who are you seeing at UVA? Dr. Yarboro has some experience with us motorcycle guys.
