Ih dear

got my MV out this morning as I had sold my ZXR and the chap was coming to pick her up.

Whilst paddling back I slipped, oh what a save.  My poor old leg is a lot stronger than it looks.  There is no way I was going to let the pretty girl down on the deck at less than walking speed

 

It doesn't matter how great the experience we are al susceptible.  Glad your ok and put the bike to bed and forget about it x

Sorry to hear that.

I once rode the Harley many miles in the snow. I was lucky not to drop it.

You always kick yourself afterwards but it happens so fast you don't get much chance to stop it going down. 

I hope the sprain isn't too painful. Try an ice pack on it. No longer than 20 minutes at a time is best.
