    Thumbs down My Turn!

    I was traveling north on Rte 202 in Belchertown around 2:30 this afternoon. It was not raining but the roads were damp. Car in front of me, I was behind the driver close to the yellow line, a school bus is traveling south with it's red lights flashing, still rolling to a stop. The car in front of me stopped quick although the bus was not stopped yet.
    I applied the front breaks quickly and the front lost traction, i immediately counter steered right but I was to close to the car and clipped the right taillight with my left hand/clip-on got all squirly and went off into the dirt shoulder.
    Right away I knew my left hand was fucked. It felt like it got squished in a vice.
    Got an ambulance ride to the hospital took x rays and all the other good stuff.

    When I hit the tail light the plastic broke and pierced my glove and sliced my middle finger open. The impact fractured the bone connected to the middle finger.
    My fault I was following to close in yucky conditions.

    Saw my bike. It came out better than I did. One small crack on the LH upper fairing and a lot of leaves mud and pine needles. Didnt sit on it but the clip-ons appear to be straight.

    Default Phew!

    Hey Jim,

    That sucks majorly, but I'm so glad it wasn't worse. You should heal up quick. You're young. Then again, virtually everyone here is young to me.
