    If only you had the patented KTM tri milk crate luggage system, it might have been a different story.

    Were you on the bike or getting dragged behind it on the boogie board, if you were on the board you need to teach your dog not to get target fixation when steering the bike, heal quick and heal well

    I think the salutation " break a leg" is best kept for the theatre :(

    Speedy recovery Dave, post more jokes.

    Yowzer! That is a clean break at least. Should heal up nicely.

    I take it you were able to ride out to your car (help)?
