I did crush my ankle in 2005.

This time I only sprained that ankle. I should heal in a week.

Iunno about that whole crashing-brings-knowledge philosophy. I'd rather learn the hard lessons from someone else going down. Or, as they say, "The clever man learns from his mistakes, the wise man learns from the mistakes of others."

But still, glad you're ok and keeping a good attitude about it all.

Mark, I think I must be reading your post wrong, but it looks like you said a rider can't learn from crashing.

Actually I have not learned a thing from these two crashes. I have learned that when one really revamps their riding style there is an increased chance of crashing. Also I learned about how emotional ties can be bound in an object, like a motorcycle.

Seriously? So you don't know why you crashed? Or you do know why you crashed, and you already knew whatever that was and did it anyways? Huh.

ThinkFast you know you are replying to a thread over 10 years old? I'm not even sure if Mark still posts here.

I do, and he does. The topic of this thread is as relevant as it was the day it was posted, imho.

To add to the 11 year old thread ...

From the pic of dragging a knee on skeggs to the "how do I go faster" mindset, I was thinking "why is this guy riding the street like this" ... get to the track.

I couldn't make it much further.
