Me too!

Was riding on the outer edge of some railroad tracks and because I was going too slow I got the front tire to hit wrong and fell over to the left where there was a huge ident in the side road causing me to fall about 10 feet down.

I landed on all the rocks typically found along side of railroad tracks...with the tires facing the sky and the bike on one leg. Glad I had on my helmet or I would have kissed those rocks pretty hard (based on the gouges in my helmet).

Took me a while to drag the bike back so I could grab it and turn it over. Broke the clutch lever and all the plastic on the left side is marked up too.

Got her started and rode on down the tracks to where I was going. That's when I realized how much pain I was in.

Got the xray back and my hand isn't broken, but I got some great pain pills for it. Replaced clutch lever, did oil change and am ready for my next trip.
