Ouch!

I too went down yesterday while riding down Sierra in downtown Reno. Guy changed lanes into me without signaling & without looking. Given where I was there weren't any cameras. I think I was doing about 25. It cracked the wind screen, ground on the controls a bit, and killed the helm.

Way back when I lived at Myrtle Beach in the 80's and had my Honda 350Four, the one thing that would get us was the little bit of sand in the corners. Sht was like ice.
