The word crashed can be used in many different ways. Basically I was going up and down a dune today here in Las Vegas, NV and the back tire decided it wanted to be on the front of the bike. I guess it got tired of always bringing up the rear. So halfway up the dune she got wobbly and sent me down to the ground. Best news is that I ended up with only a bent gear lever. So ten bucks but I could still drive her home. Even stayed out for another 30 minutes. Reason for my post...wear the proper gear. Was wearing my Alpine Star boots and they saved me. Bike was laying on my foot and I couldn't even tell. I almost wore my work boots since I was only going out for a little. Glad a changed my mind. Other than a sore elbow and pinky I'm ready to go back out tomorrow. Ride safe all. Anything can happen even if you have ridden the same dune 150 times before. Cheers.
