... what a way to end 2012.
Don't worry, I'm okay! Let some photos tell the story.

So, what's the story? To make it short as I'm typing this with my left hand: Hit a deer on Page Mill Road, just enough to push the front wheel to the right, highsided the bike on the left side at around 20 to 25mph and threw myself on the front. Some bruises, a broken wrist, a damaged bike, 4 to 6 weeks with a cast on the right arm.
Bummer ... it was my second ride after the surgery, I was slow. Unfortunately not slow enough to stop in time to avoid the collision.
Awaiting appointment with orthopedist to get permanent cast and insurance adjuster to discuss the damage to bike and gear.
First thought: Damn lucky I didn't do anything bad to my just healed chest
Second thought: Damn, no riding again until wrist is healed
Third thought: Great riding gear saved this stupid ass
Forth thought: Need quite some new riding gear ... shit ...
Fifth thought: hopefully the bike isn't totaled, I was nearly done farkling
Last thought: Hopefully 2013 will be a better year.
