My feet were cold even with double wool socks on so I headed back home first before going snow mobile trail riding and put my shoe covers on also.
I wheeled around a corner and then down this slight incline and then I said "OH $#1+ " This picture is from the reverse direction. I made the split second decision to not try and stop or I would probably dump the bike and these are steel beams and that is creek below. Dumping the bike here probably meant either splitting my bean open, drowning, or freezing to death or perhaps all three. Having front shocks helped carry my momentum up and over the gap, my heart rate pegged on my Heart Monitor when the support plank started to slide on me. Afterwards I enjoyed the adrenaline rush. YaHoo.
other then that incident and a few slide outs on ice patches well hidden under a light snow covering I had a relatively safe journey.
Now yesterday LorFlor asked the question below on my blog commentary,
"Sometimes I wonder how many scars you have from your obsession.
My answer is, "Nope L, I never biff as you can see by the picture below." :-)
Just kidd'n yeap flopping over goes with the year round riding. These knocks came when a large stick popped in between my spokes at around 15 mph and locked my front tire flipping me into the air and onto a face plant. I got me a good headache out of this.
and now it's time to boogie woogie all the way home
My baby girl Melissa turns 30 today, now she's all growed up and has her own, and she's still my baby girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELISSA
Now as they used to say on the Mickey Mouse show, "now it's time to say goodbye."
