Ahh.... Yes I did it was on my self propelled cycle this time. Don't know what I hit (it happened early morning b/4 dawn on my way to work)

Wow, sorry to hear that. Were you riding on the road or on a sidewalk? I have a friend who broke his collarbone a couple of years ago after going over the handlebars, and he's a fast guy who was on a race team (although his getoff wasn't during a race or even training). It happens to even the best.

If you rode in the 70's you've been here.
In this long-running thread from before, I did not see many WI locations.  Do WI riders play too?  Kinda hard for me to get from Milwaukee to MN to play but I am willing to try during the Summer.  :)

I tried to move it to WI a week ago, but someone beat me to it. I'll keep trying though. WI has some great roads. It was too late the other night.

Lonerider, I share your pain.  When my old C-10 and I kissed the pavement I ended up with broken clavicle (which had to have a plate/screws), 10 ribs, torn rotator cuff & biceps tendor, some internal bleeding, and other "minor" dings.  Thank goodness for helmets, gloves, jacket, etc.  Spent 5 weeks at home and had two follow up surgeries on shoulder related things.  Heal fast without pain brother!

Tagged. The old Sport Wheels location, Jordan MN.


Yep, picked up parts there a few times, and also used to ride some of trails around here.

It was a nice day to get out for a 2-hour lunch  ;D

New tag soon to come....

New tag:



Hope this isn't a repeat of an earlier tag......

This is a neat spot. I feel like going back just after dawn to get a picture in better lighting.

Lonerider, sorry to hear about the incident. Get well and heal up fast. Things happen. The only way to minimize accidents is to stay under the covers and never take any chances. Of course,  you miss most of the good things in life and end up dying as a bored, dull person. I think I'll take chances instead. I haven't had any near death experiences since Sunday. And no, it wasn't on a motorcycle. Sometimes even fishing can be extremely dangerous. I'm still here and so are my friends, so it's another good day.

Hope to you you riding soon.

Very easy to find with Google-FU

I don't believe it was ever done on this board.

The Sconi riders are a little thinner on this side of the state (numbers wise, not girth). I did put the tag in WI in the past, down in the SW area.

Hint #2 on the current tag:

It's down the road from a store that sounds like it might have green walls, but doesn't.
