I have learned my lesson and she will be locked safely away in the garage until I put brakes on it and buy a helmet.
Come on bro....... these are exactly the kind of mishaps that have the potential to give motorized bikes a bad rap, common sense says if it has a motor and no brakes its a no go situation until it does.....!
Glad you weren't seriously injured and hope what is injured heals fast but we all better be thinking about the big picture and not taking risk like that for multiple reasons, first it aint worth loosing life and or limb over and second one bad accident may be all it takes for some nut job with some pull and money in the area to mount a campaign against people having a motorized bike on the public roadways....... lots of people now days just itching for something to make themselves famous with......
Again hope you heal quick and good..... and as you said..... keep that's dang bike as something only to look at until you make sure its safe.....!
