I need to put my name on the Wall of Shame
The other day I was filling up fuel in my 1800 C. After getting all dressed up, leg over the saddle I realized that the key was in my back right pocket. As I was fumbling to get the key out I lost my footing on the bike and it started leaning to the right , it got to the point of no return where I could not get her up on my own. I didn't lay her down. somehow I managed to hold her up with my right thigh and my left hand on the handle bar. Thankfully one gentleman saw me struggling and came to my Aid and helped me get her back up.
Although nothing happened to the bike I think I may have ligament damage on my left elbow due to trying to hold her up! I start my second session of Physio and let me tell you, I am in a lot of pain! I can barely squeeze my thumb and index finger together as the pain shoots right up my elbow! You would think this is a noob mistake but I cannot believe this happened to me in almost three decades of riding.
