Ok guys.. I came a little too fast into a corner yesterday and panicked and straighten her up and put on the brakes. I know i should've leaned harder and ridden her out but i didn't. Unfortunately (fortunately) I went off the asphalt and was greeted with a 4x4's rut that was about a foot deep. Needless to say the front end hit this and sent the bike down hard on its left side.....which in turn, sent me down hard on the left side. slamming my shoulder down on the ground and breaking my left clavicle (collar bone). OUCH. Luckily no road rash or anything else that i know of. They put me in a figure 8 and an arm sling as well.

My bike was not torn up that bad that i could see but the shoulder pain was my first concern...not the bike. But i have a good feeling that there's not that much damage. Just letting you guys know. I'm gonna stop typing now as i am currently one-armed and its taken me about 10 mins. to type this.:cuss

That's why you look through the corner, and stay relaxed. You will learn, or have 2 broken arms! har har... sorry bad pun. Glad it wasn't worse!
