Tom- I am embarrassed to say that I was not wearing a helmet. Just recently I said in a post that I have decided to get one- even said what kind I want. I'm lucky the pretty girls weren't full of pop skull and speeding. I had actually considered riding this 8 miles on back roads a couple times a week before I bought the helmet! Knucklehead.
I was wearing my standard issue Elmer Fud headgear though...
OchoNinja- [Alum Rock! Beautiful- I'd forgotten that place.] Stitches? Oh man, AND the bike
I am glad to hear you're doing a brake check up there! You have a long life in front of you my friend. As far as distractions- the female form... it's... I mean... well, you know. Whatayagonnado?
