Just when I got everything squared away with the course, insurance, semi comfortable riding and finally able to get out for a nice ride..and then.s??t happens.
I went for an nice ride on Saturday, started out visiting a friend about half an hour away, then headed north to port perry. Was gonna stop there and have a coffee, when I see threatening clouds moving in. Thought better keep moving and headed back south away from it towards Oshawa.
Since I am still not comfortable in the city traffic I decided to take one of the country roads around it. A good road with one s- turn nothing too serious I thought.
Slowed down completely for it, probably too slow, went through the first turn, straightened out ready for the second and leaned a little too far...then away went the back end.
Floorboard touched down and she got away from me. I went down hard on my shoulder,breaking my collarbone in 3 places. I now realize even more, there is very little give in asphalt
Bike was fine, just a bent screw in the handlebar weight.
So I will be enjoying your rides from here for a while until I can get back in the saddle.
Keep the happy rides going and "do as I say,not as I do". Keep the rubber side down.
