Rough night for the roadie. 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Well, wall of shame time for me tonight. Went for a ride with DChopper73 and had split up to head home. Was taking a cloverleaf off ramp and a cage getting on forced me to go deeper than I would have liked. Was into the turn when I hit gravel and lost her. 35-40 mph lowside.
Helmet took a good wack but my head is fine. Never going out again without my full face. Usually don't wear leather on a summer night but tonight I did. Only got a little rash on my side where the jacket rode up. Worst injury I got was on my finger cause I had fingerless gloves. Another lesson learned

Don't see how that's Shame on your Part. couldn't of foreseen any of that. But Glad to hear you made it out in pretty good shape for 35-40 mph lay-down!

I understand about the Leathers! Even at Night here in Texas its still Miserable to even think about wearing them, hear things like this makes you think twice though.

Glad whatever Angel, suggested you ride with your leathers, was on duty. How bad did you mess up your pinkie? Road rash, or worse?
