Didn't put enough weight on the rear end, got the wobbles at about 40mph that removed me from the bike when it stopped. Flipped forward with the bike exhaust side up and me underneath. I remember the sand on my helmet and wondering how ok I would be after we stopped. They pulled the bike off me and then I went to sleep for a second. Woke up and knew there was something wrong IN my shoulder. Nothing hurt just "wrong" pain bad in 45 min. Then mostly scared. The best feeling was when the guys said I was tough and strong. I made them all pray with me which made me feel much better.

My bike is in good condition actually and I believe it would have been much worse had I not had good Dianese, First Gear, and alpine star gear. Also being limber helps.

Typing lefty now and on Percocet but check out the newest episode of Wild West Alaska this Thursday at 7 on animal planet episode should be all about me.

So how much air????
Percocets have never done much for me. Recently (at best) I fall asleep.
When I got burned couple years ago they gave me percs. I told them they didnt work so they gave me somethin fresh out of the FDA; nucynta. That did the trick.

Also waiting for more info. In the mean time, just for reference, I'll mention again my last get off. I attribute mine to loose shale, down-hill, narrow, 2-track, very rocky, worn rear tire, too much rear brake, lightly over-loaded (carrying full camp gear), not enough padding, AND not enuff recent experience.



Each of those is easy to remedy. All have been (are being) addressed.
