Let me start by saying... CRASHING SUCKS!
I have absolutely no memory of it, whatsoever, but I evidently hit a horse about five miles from home on July 24th. (Don't screw with me as I killed it with my face.) Then again, it broke my jaw in three places. If anyone's looking to shed 20 pounds in a week and a half, I have a foolproof method -- let the doctors wire your jaw shut. Oh, and a liquid diet SUCKS
Looking at the debris field (after spending three days in the hospital), it appears the horse ran out from behind a barn, on the right side of the road, and pushed me off of the left side of the road upon impact. This is all speculation because, as I said, I have no memory of it, at all. All I remember is that I was riding and then I was sitting in a hospital bed.
Of course, the bike's totaled. The good news? I'm getting a gorgeous new 2019 GT Sport. That said, this is NOT
the way to get a new bike!
As with when the deer swept me off of my '12, my helmet saved my life and my gear kept me from skin grafts. ATGATT, guys -- ALWAYS!
