Glad you're alright.
Worse than that is when you stop for the yellow light and the guy behind you thinks you're going to run it.

Good to hear you're ok. The bike can be fixed.

Glad your OK. Its a good thing when you say the metal and plastic was hurt rather than you.

Just curious...was it a high side flip kinda thing? Loosing the back tire with the lockup and letting it go on the skid?

Sorry to hear about your accident, but glad you are OK. Bikes can be repaired or replaced, bones and skin, not so much. I never use any type of treatment on my bike tires. I don’t want ever the remote possibility of it getting on the contact patch.

Hope things work out with the bike.

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans!
