They say that it’s not “if” a motorbike rider will have a crash… its “when”. The answer was “today”…
Rocks fallen on the road (as they often do after becoming loose on the cliffs of Santorini), taking the corner and trying to avoid them… only to hit the soft soil on the side. I can now vouch from experience that when human face, knees and hands hit the bitumen… the bitumen wins ;-(
Still… it could’ve been a hell of a lot worse. I think this was my wake up call to not let the mind drift when riding.
Sore now… will probably wake up a lot more so. Face and right hand took the impact but all things considered I walked, or rode away, in much better shape than I should have. I’m actually quite pissed off because I had been saving a post for a while and tonight was the night. But right hand is a bit too sore to type… so it will have to wait till tomorrow or Wednesday.
To those of you that have already sent your essay for Santorini Dreaming… thank you !
To those of you that are still considering it… dare to dream!
