As some of you may know I crashed back in July of last year. (http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-v-strom-discussion/55623-first-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!
