crash

So the Wife had a little accident last night on her ride home from work. She pulled into a garden shop on her Rebel, the driveway entrance is paved but turns to stones after about 4 feet. So as she turns in and is still in the turning motion the front tire slips out from under her " I was not there so I don't know if she pulled her front brake or not" and down she went. Luckily she was going slow and wearing protective clothing. She only got a browse on her leg as the bike fell on top of her. The bike faired well a dent on the tank bent blinker arms and the right foot peg is a little twisted. It could have been worse thankfully she wears the proper gear now a days since I've hounded her about it. One of her friends who rides a Harley barely wears a helmet " half helmet" jeans and a tee-shirt so that's what she thought was ok for riding until I worked on her. I think now she will not question what to wear when riding.

Glad to hear she's ok! I'm working the same "gear" train of thought into my better half as well.

Good to hear she is ok. It doesn't take much to sustain a large injury. The right gear is essential, my wife can attest to that.

Glad to hear your wife is doing well. People out here look at me like I am nuts for wearing full gear (especially riding pants). All I tell them when they ask why is that I learned my lesson the first time!

Now just make sure she gets back in the saddle ASAP ...
