Don't you hate when that happens!
« on: March 16, 2014, 05:37:15 pm »
Lost the bike backing out of the driveway. It hit the tipping point and rather than pull very muscle in my body trying to hold her up I just let her down slow.  ???  First time in almost five years!

Glad you could let her down slow without hurting yourself.  I've always been partial to that 2001 blue and it's good to hear she wasn't hurt too bad.  Backing up on a downslope is always perilous, no matter how familiar it is.

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 490th recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have yet another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!
