It had been misting yesterday, but had dried out a bit, so I decided to go down to the local stealership and check out any new arrivals. I was riding my CB500X on the divided four lane, preparing to stop to make a u turn when the light changed, so I made the left turn, felt Ike I rolled on smoothly, only to find myself jack hammered into the pavement with the bike on the ground behind me. There is an article in Cycleworld concerning cold tire high sides, and it would appear that this was a textbook case. HJC helmet, alpine stars jacket and boots, dragginjeans, all unscathed, Sedici gloves took the brunt... Pulled a groin muscle, sprained wrist, feel like a truck hit my shoulders, but otherwise physically fine, mentally a little shaken, rode the bike home(slowly), parts flapping in the wind. I am very thankful to be relatively unscathed; it could have been much worse.
