    I hope it is feeling broken in, instead of "feeling broken.

    Home again

    Arrived home just after noon.

    Did not enjoy the dropping of the bike, but it was essentially a zero speed drop with very limited scratches and nothing broken. Just came to a stop too fast to get my foot down. But, seeing as how I was heading towards a big rock cliff side...

    I did have an option. I could have turned my head rightwards and applyied some power. You know, those skills you learn at those advanced rider courses, the one I did not take yet. This was really a crisis of confidence situation. My bike was probably quite ashamed of me...
