    Ouh ………...

    when i first left the house I KNEW something was wrong, but could not quite identify the problem.

    the bike felt "different"

    as the roads are steep, continuously switchback, speed limit 25 MPH, I quickly identified the demon, the front tire was low , did not look really bad, but ..

    trying to get to Town yo the gas station, keeping speeds down around 10 mph ..

    then suddenly, the front tire/tube came rolling off the rim, damn ..

    it happened SOOOOO FAST !

    really weird, this is the first time I ever did this, forgot to snap the chin strap on the helmet. My head smashed on the asphalt, and helmet rolled down he road.

    a nice driver right behind me say this happen, and stopped to stop traffic . My adrenaline gave me superhuman strength, as I lifted the bike without even a strain, getting it back on and off the road

    been two weeks, my skin gets peeled off every morning with the sheets. right side , right leg, right shoulder …peeled off/ scrapped down like and orange..

    back on the bike !

    63 years old first accident !!
