Oww... Oww... Owwwww....
I was riding my motorcycle in a parking lot this morning, at about 5 mph, when an inattentive driver clipped the back of my bike, knocking it over and causing me to tumble on the concrete. Fortunately I suffered no serious injuries but, man, am I sore. My left side is aching badly.
Damage to the bike was minor, mostly cosmetic. I'll have it checked out by my mechanic.
The psychology of bikers is that, after an accident, we immediately lift our motorcycles up with the insane belief that doing so will make the accident disappear. Fueled by adrenaline and unfazed by pain, I heaved 800 lbs. of metal to an upright position. Yes, that was crazy but it's how our brains work.
No pics with this post. In fact, I'd like to forget the whole thing happened. Pour me a drink, please.
