Hi Allen -- I just joined so I can't say I noticed you were gone but I do want to say I'm glad you're ok!
donutguy -- My friend had the same experience. His bike was fine, but his helmet was split to pieces. He suffered a level 2 concussion, and the doctors told him his helmet pretty much saved his life. Better safe than sorry!
I never saw it coming and maybe I'm the 1% of riders that a helmet saved- but looking at my shattered helmet after the crash...I'm glad it was the helmet that shattered and not my skull.
