    Update for those playing at home.

    We took our eldest for a blat through the hills around Brigadoon.
    Someone got a little too confident, quick and complacent...target fixation and a tap of front brake did the rest.
    Slight grazing on the Across and some bruising on the rider. Safety gear did its job despite the riders best effort to chew tarmac through the visor. Lol
    From the post mortem it looks like the bike pancaked through the air, off the curb, as she dismounted.

        Cheers...no, it wasn't a good feeling.
        I imagine it was worse for her mum who was behind [MENTION=35338]Tonya[/MENTION] but not close enough to see the incident.
        Just makes me glad we pushed for full gear. Her TCX boots saved her ankle with scuffing right over both, inside and outside, Ankle-bones of her right foot. Jacket looks like her right shoulder took a good knock...but she's a true biker. Got back on after we tested it and limped it home.

                  Haha. I'm all good. Just a bit sore (and same goes for my bike). Lesson well learnt with no serious consequence (The best kind of lesson)
                  Let's fix her up already and get back out there (just maybe a bit slower through the 'slow-points' this time)

                    Might be an idea to get the double vision checked out.

                      Hmm...I'll get the Dr to check that while he examines her for the concussion.
                      ED on Sunday's is no fun.

                            Thanks for the kind thoughts.
                            Most of have been there...thankfully it's just rest and recover rather than surgery & repair. No titanium club membership this time

                              Glad everyone is OK guys and girls.
