Day-um.
Probably one of the lessons from this thread is that although injuries do happen and surgery is called for and modern orthopaedic surgery can put together just about any bone disturbance, the spirit, the essence of the reason we ride is not lost but in some way enhanced.

Fear of mishap is not a good educator, but awareness that a lack of diligence can have consequences is.

For me decisions are thoughtful and awareness of the road is paramount to a good ride, not an uneventful ride but a ride that delivers all that I demand of it. No surprises.
