Commuting to work this morning, went down on a slippery post-rain oil patch. I was distracted by a pedestrian and a doubleparked truck when suddenly the bike slid and ouch! I'm still sore. It's a good thing I always wear a helmet. I finally realized how valuable one is. Although at first I thought I was just suffering from road rash -- tore jersey and shorts -- I later realized that the fall cracked the helmet as well! Which explains the lingering mental confusion... It could have been so much worse.

Sorry to hear about your slide - could've been worse. Buddy did that and broke his pelvis two years ago.
Lucky for you that you were only slightly dinged up... [nm]jagiger
