Wayne Rainey hardly crashed compared to Kevin Shwantz and look how that turned out. Hope your healing up ok and sorry for your unlucky crash!
Ain't that the truth. I crashed on the highway doing 70mph or so last year and came out with no injuries, other than a couple minor bumps and bruises. Over the weekend, I tipped over nearly at a standstill and broke my fibula. WTH!?!?!
