    Hi Everyone !!

    I'm back after taking the winter off, anyway I went out for my first ride of the year. Not far from
    my house, I went down a steeeeep main road ( about 20 MPH ). I looked down and seen my flasher light
    was coming loose, it is in the front so I reach down to push it back on. Well I put the front brake
    on ever so lightly, to slow it down some and it grabbed real hard. I fell down on to the handle
    bars, then I tried to get back up and my foot hit the road then.

    Well I seen the road come ever so fastly, and thought ( oh no !! ) this is going to hurt really bad.
    Just then, with a thought I turned the wheel to the left. Got my hand around the handle bar end, and
    pulled my self back up right. That was one of the dumbest things I ever didn't, I should have known
    better then that.

    A wake up call for sure, I'll not be doing that again any time soon. Anyway I went on a 8 mile ride,
    everything went really good after that happened. Hurt alittle the next day, but I'm now ready for
    the next ride. I'm planning on 10 miles this time, and alittle more hills to get use to it.
