50kph + asphault = ouch
The accident happened when the scooter all of the sudden just cut out. The engine just stopped and the sudden, unexpected slowing of the scooter caused me to run into the back of it. Then as I was reacting, I hooked the rear wheel/fender with my front wheel and fight it as I tried, it was nearly impossible to control. Once I came free from the scooter, I swerved/wobbled a little in desperation/reaction to save myself, but it was all for naught. I lost control and splat I went on the asphault. Thankfully though, it really is just a small amount of road rash and nothing too significant. My hip is a bit sore from the harsh impact on the road, but that should disappear in a couple days. Tomorrow will be the worst day for sure in terms of soreness, but hopefully it will be one last day of good training on Wednesday and off to a good weekend of racing. Cheers.
