I have not been down in 45 years or so.
The number of times I have been down is in the hundreds. I am sure of that. Maybe 10 or so good road crashes. The hundreds came from years of racing.
My hat is off to you guys who have never bit the pavement. At 70 I do not want to taste it again.
I remember a number of long slides before I started to roll. All bad. Busted bones and missing skin. No fun.
