All the best for healing.
The danger of being preoccupied especially when you get comfortable on the bike should not be underestimated. Wish someone would start a thread, crashes and near misses. We call all learn from them.
Having just nearly crashed in a turn because I was preoccupied over work issues, I can attest to the risk factor. Won't go into the embarrassing details. I just zoned out on work and was not paying attention.
Not saying this is what happened to you. Fortunately, I did not go down but whacked my foot without proper riding boots. As soon as the swelling subsides, I am getting steel toes. Another vote for not cutting corners on proper riding gear. Fortunately, I did not panick and that saved me from a serious crash. Still, a lesson I will not soon forget.
