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.

Well count your blessings. I hope that you do not have serious ACL damage.

BTW, what safety gear were you riding?

Get well soon!

Insurance took a look today, Frame is compromised, it's totaled... Bye Bye Bluejay, had a nice run while it lasted.

Better that you're on the mend than the bike. Honda can build another. Heal well, and quickly!
