Just a quick note for the new kids: Don't take anything the experienced riders tell you for granted; it is ALL important.

Anyway, he saw an orthopedic surgeon today and got pics taken; no broken bones but that wasn't much of a surprise. Off to see the MR machine tomorrow but if everything goes okay it will just be some PT and back on the road.

The bike is a different story... It idled on its side for over 2 minutes; likely it needs bearings replaced and there is at least $1.5K in just plastic, levers, and a foot peg.

Wouldn't it be great if... bikes could heal like humans? A little PT and they are all better with minimal scarring...
