Unhappy Well it finally happened

Been riding for a couple years and everybody kept telling me that everyone goes down eventually. Well it happened yesterday. Luckily I was wearing all my gear and ended up with a broke ankle and collar bone a thrashed jacket and f****d up helmet that I'm pretty sure saved my life. Y'all be careful on those back roads and keep your gear on.

Glad your in one piece (sort of). Stay positive.

The important thing is that you're alive. Anything else is replaceable. Good luck in your recovery.
