"The corner" revisited

As some of you may know I crashed back in July of last year. (https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...rst-crash.html) Nothing too major but it resulted in a broken left thumb & "road rash" to my bike.

Fast forward to yesterday....

I was on a "command sponsored ride" from one base to another. The destination base was on the road that I crashed on. I had to ride through the very corner that I crashed on in both directions. Needless to say I was a little worried/freaked out, but alas I took a deep breath...SLOWED DOWN...& made it through with no problems!

I see WHY I crashed, too. That corner is VERY DIFFICULT!!! I knew that I was going to have to "man up" sooner or later & go down that road again just to "jump back on the horse". I'm just glad that it had a positive outcome!

Ride safe!!

You can't fix stupid!

Pain is weakness leaving the body!

When you fall off the horse, get straight back on.

At least you walked away from the fall.

Well done, and you have observed why the corner caught you out the first time.

Ock. in Oz

I ride naked and unafraid.
