Leaves Are Really Slippery...

I just wanted to share that.

The second thing is:

You know those little road-reflector things (road tits or whatever you call 'em) that are about three inches around and an inch tall and separate the lanes? Well here's the hot tip of the month.

"If you have your knee down in a turn, and it's firmly planted on the tarmac, don't try to move one of those reflectors with your knee. They won't budge."

Yesterday was the second time I've ever done that. I thought I had been taught a lesson the first time (obviously not), but yesterday I was schooled. Luckily, I wasn't torn off my bike, but I did spend a few hours at the hospital, blew a meniscus and tore a ligament.

Just wanted to share some stupidity with you.

Thank you for both of those tips and hope you are ok. Are you on crutches or what? Anyway, take care and hope you are back in action soon!

FYI....

They are called "Bot's Dots". After their inventor. Maybe it's Bott....not sure about the spelling but I am sure about the name.

Not necessarily, if he was on a four lane highway and hit the tits dividing the two same-direction lanes. But I doubt that was the case.

Actually, he would still be in the other lane, just not the oncoming lane.
