rider down/ dog-gone it!
It is my sad duty to report a local V Strommer has gone down - ME!
I hit a dog (pit bull) early last week, and ended up spending the remainder of the week in the hospital; broken clavicle, ribs. foot, punctured lung, and a generally beat up left side.
I don't think I was doing more than 10mph when I went down, so it plays to the old adage that it low speed crashes are generally worse, as you don't lose any energy by sliding.
All I know is that as soon as I healed enough, I'll be looking to make a new (pitbull) rug to put in front of the fireplace!
