Stuff happens unfortunately, I hope you get over this soon MrJo. Not a MC story, but my son and a friend of his built a new big porch and deck, steps and a ramp (for future use) for us recently to replace the old smaller one that was falling apart. The floor of the old deck was level with the door threshold and that's what we've been walking across for 20 something years. The floor of the new one is slightly lower making it a 3 to 4 inch step up into the house. Pretty small yes, but people are creatures of habit. The first day we used it, we all three tripped going into the house, me first and I fell hard, then after telling me to watch out for that step my wife tripped on it, and a few hours later our son who built it also tripped on it, but he was able to recover his balance before going down and my wife was ok. I jammed up the two middle fingers on my right hand real good breaking my fall and have a sore back and am sore all over. After a week it's getting somewhat better but the fingers are still tender and it hurts to use the vtx front brake. None of us ever tripped on it again, and I got one of those rubber door matts that's like a small ramp, elevated on one side, just for good measure.
