I'm okay

My phone didn't save your number for some reason Lee so this was the only way I could let you all know I made it home fine.

It's probably just a sprain and it hurts to walk on, but otherwise my ankle is just stiff and swollen.

Big thanks to John for riding the majority of the way home with me (and lifting the bike off me) and to you all for offering as much help as you could.

It was (is) a painful lesson, but I will return on a future ride with some beefier boots.

Thanks again!

As a side note, I would NOT recommend a thumper for a smooth ride home. It's already like riding a washing machine and you feel every thump with a swollen ankle.

Good to hear you made it home before the thing really started to swell up...because I was worried about you man!

Those little gravel pits are deadly at low speed and it could've been any one of us that slid out like that...so don't take it too personally...

Great riding with you Garrett!...I'm sure you'll be back up on the horse in just a few!

It was kind of weird not knowing how fast I was going into corners (sometimes I don't bother looking even when the speedo works) & I guess people tape their speedo (or they stuff their Speedos?) anyway...so...I have no idea how far or how fast anybody went...including me...so...as far as I'm concerned...we all stayed well within the posted speed limit(s)...

Glad you made it home safe! ~Jon
