I feel so embarrassed! I've been riding for almost a year and never even came close to crashing. Today of all days I was on my way to a motorcycle training course when I took a turn too wide and ate it on the gravel shoulder going about 40 mph. Luckily my gear did it's job except for the annoying little issue of my jacket riding up and exposing my belly :-( 

I'm not hurt except for the road rash on my stomach, a few bumps and bruises and a tweaked shoulder. My bike only has a busted mirror and turn signal *Yea!* Then to make matters even more embarassing, someone called the police who went looking for me after I rode off. Not 10 mins down the road I get surrounded by 3 cop cars, a motorcycle cop then an ambulance. embarrassedNow I'm sitting at home popping Motrin, feeling sorry for myself :-( Any other riders out there eat it too? I'd like to feel less alone,lol.

Thanks. It really does! It's like a burn :-( I feel crippled,lol. I'm told it'll heal in a couple weeks though.

I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I considered that but I would have had to leave my bike and have it towed. The EMTs cleared me but said to check in with my doctor if anything gets worse, (infectiion, swelling, ect)

That looks painful!!

My husband dropped his Ducati on his first ride. I think he panicked because a truck turned too close to him or something. I don't really remember and didn't get the whole story because he was speaking really fast in Spanish.
