But I must have thought I could get the bike steered back onto the road, and obviously failed (ground was too wet/muddy, so once that cruiser left the road it couldn't do anything but travel in a straight line)
You've got a beautiful bike though, take care of it, and ride safe! (And if you're ever about to crash into a steel pipe fence, just jump off the bike, don't try to save it
Thanks buddy, i'm glad you made it out of the accident alive
Will you be ok physically, able to walk etc eventually ?
