So now I'm not only trying so stay upright, I'm trying to avoid running over this guy's head and making a bad situation much, much worse. A bit of brake here, a bit of bar input there, and I slip between the sliding head and the sliding Wing.The Duc does not miss a beat.

My Oxnar boot did it's work here, without it I'm sure I'd be in a cast, at least.

I enjoy reading accounts where someone exhibited skill and kept one's head cool in an emergency situation [you, not the FAT FU#K SFB on the Gold Wing].

Ditto on the boots. I have some Oxnars too.

In high school I was in a 70MPH crash and was not wearing good boots [I mean, who had money for gear]. When my bike went down, the brake lever acted like a spoon and dug out the tissue down to the bone near the top of my foot. When I looked at it, I could see the bone. It hurt like hell. Regulation boots after that.
