A series of bonehead moves-

1. walking the hound last week, I slip on wet grass & jam my left thumb

2. Running the hound on my bicycle yesterday (at a fair clip I might add), she see's a rat dog on the sidewalk & beelines- crossing my front wheel in the process.

Over the bars I go.

I rash my left sholder, elbow, & knee, bruise my ribcage, jam my right thumb.

(both dogs came out unscathed) (so did the bike)

3. Decide my injuries will not hinder my operating my XR, take it to storage instead of the truck.

4. Leaving storage, need to make a quick sharp left & right from a standstill.

5. Bike is in 2nd, not first, bike stalls. Over she goes.

6. I bounce on the same elbow I just took out.

Silver lining? I now know I can get this bike back on it's feet, bad thumbs, bruised ribs & all. Very limited damage in the line of sight- time for some cop bag bars fo sho!!

So, I got that goin for me...

Welcome fellow TOC member!

These things happen and it's good to hear you and the XR made it through the tip with minimal damage. As far as the pre-tip damage you may want to hire a dog walker...

Thankya, but I'll walk her thru the pain... Pain & I are real close- we spent many a lonely day together, just him & me...

Ya know what's good about pain? It feels SOOO much better when it goes away!!

What is this pain going away thing? Is it supposed to go away? If so that would be damn nice! I spent most my career lifting things I should have used a forklift for and trying to outwork the young guys so I am WAY too familiar with pain. I guess since I can't get anybody to help with the back problems and the fact that the VA sends me a monthly disability I might as well keep it.

Glad to hear the XR, the pooches and your bicycle are okay. My thoughts are with your thumbs and elbows.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
