Yikes

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

That rider in the OP was very fortunate to have only fractured a shoulder and some bruising. In the followup, it was mentioned that a branch on the tree that caught the bike impaled the radiator. It could have just as easily been him.

I GENERALLY won't ride on Saturday or Sunday (w/ the exception of going to Mass or similar rides) because of 'squids' in (or on) four wheels or two.

I try doing my long rides on Mondays or Tuesdays here in Southern California. Not as many riders out as well as cars on the roads that are good for riding.

One of the benefits of an airline schedule, I pretty much only ride during the week
