I was having a great ride up until about 45 minutes after I took this pic. On a beautiful one lane back road here in #randolphwv I hit a kid on a dirt bike head on! It was as much my faught as it was his. The sun was in my eyes and i was towards the center of the rode as was he. He was flying and he mentioned after the fact he had no brakes. I hit him almost head on, went over the bars and landed on my back and head. Broke my helmet, my saddle and probably my ass! REALLY scared me! I was riding to a party to meet mandi_riddle and the kids. I ate some food and drank some beer. Hoping I feel better in the morning. Always pay attention and always be vigilant! #ridelife #rideordie #hugs ...
