    Hey guys, I just found out I'm the latest casualty from the Rally. Do I get a badge or something? They say it comes in threes so I should be safe a while. First, I got a ticket in Durham for failure to yield to pedestrian right-of-way. Who'd a thunk I'd almost run over a plain clothes cop. :-) Second, I had two vehicles on the same loan...my WeeStrom and my car. So I crashed the Wee at the rally but really didn't hurt it much...hurt me some but the bike's OK. Third, I hit a deer on the way back to Raleigh from Home this past Sunday night. Tore my car's front end up bad enough that I'm afraid it's totalled and I really like that car. Hopefully it won't be so badly totalled I can't buy it back and still fix it. Oh, and did I mention that sore ankle I got in the in-appropriately timed dismounting of my bike turned out today to be broken in two places (small bone...Tibula?) and crushed a little bit on the other side. The PA couldn't believe I was walking on it, without much of a limp even. I told her My Dad always said if you're gonna be dumb...ya gotta be tough. Draw your own conclusions guys. She also asked me if this was the soonest I thought maybe I oughtta have a doctor look at it. I told her a doctor at the rally had looked at it that day, immediately after the dismount. She asked what kind of doctor and I told her it was a transgendered gynecologist. Figured you'd be proud of that Doc. All kidding aside; I was really kinda surprised because I had gotten where I walked with very little limp and it was hurting less and less. But the swelling kept coming back and even though the bruising was gone, it was still sore to the touch. I thought I'd better let'em have a look-see with the X-Ray. Guess that's life but what really pisses me off is I don't think I can ride Miss Piggy with the Boot on. Oh yeah, and just so you don't think I'm busting the Doc's chops too much, he did say the big bone wasn't broken but the little one might be; and all just by feeling my ankle and rubbing around it a little.

    Oh, and I guess that's enough whining. I still had a great time at the rally.

    You'd think a cop would look both ways before crossing the street.

    dang!

    hope you heal quick and sort out your vehicle banged up vehicles.

    trying to hunt down a cop on a cross walk definitely qualifies for a "dumb-ass" sticker :lol3

    Hell, you got yours easy. I had to roast my hand to earn a dumb-ass sticker.

    I bet $100 the guy was standing at the edge of the sidewalk, monitoring who stops. I'm betting it was a sting and he wasn't the only one ticketed for that offense that day.

    Yes it was a sting...or project as the cop called it. They were waiting right around the curve. But hey, I did pick the wrong time to drift off to sleep. :shog
