Main thing here is just glad you're OK, that could have been real ugly!
Yeah it could've been way worse. Luckily my jacket helped and I was wearing gloves so most of the damage was minimized. Woke me up faster than coffee thats for sure haha.
And yup it happened right when I decided "Oh hey that looks like fun". I actually just rode her home on lunch and she made it no problems, although I will need to replace the mirror that shattered in the crash. Drove the car back from lunch, even those low vibrations on the ride home were killer on my aches.
If I get around to it today I will be cleaning my old DAX RT carb and installing it. Will have to tune in over the weekend wen my hand feels a bit better but I'm excited to get back to work on it
