Questions I keep getting about the accident
Question #1) What happened to the car?
Answer #1) I am not a small guy. I'm 6'2", approximately 250 pounds and was going >20mph. All I know is that I left on a flatbed and so did the car.
Question #2) Were you wearing a helmet?
Answer#2) I was once told to consider this when thinking about not wearing a helmet: Take a cantaloupe and drop it on the floor. Watch it break. Then think about what would happen if it was going 20mph. Then think about the cantaloupe being your head. Then put on your helmet. In other words, I was wearing a helmet.
Question #3) Why aren't you as injured as you could have been?
Answer #3) It could be that my superior cat like reflexes saved the day. It could have been that it wasn't my time. Or it could just be, as Yukon Cornelius says, "Bumbles Bounce." Whatever it is, I'm not complaining.
Question #4) When are you getting back on the bike?
Answer #4) Just did. 15 minutes on the trainer. We build from here.
