I'm not looking for an answer to this, just thinking out loud.
I've been wondering about what I'd do if an accident put me out of action for a while. I'm not normally the type to think about such things and would usually say to anyone who does that life is too short. At the moment a mate is down with a broken hip, someone else I was riding with today broke his front teeth and split his lip/chin...this is making me think about things a bit more! (I know plenty of folk who have had accidents in the past too, including myself).
I'm not even concerned about any financial implications it could cause, just how it would affect my daily life and how I wouldn't be able to catch up on what I'm currently doing.
I'm not about to start wearing a full-face/full-on body armour, the chances of me thinking I need to take it easier whilst riding are slim to non, and I'm not going to stop riding what could be viewed as dangerous. What's a bloke to do? I'm not willing to change but have these new, off-putting thoughts...****! My only consolation is that I won't be thinking of such things whilst enjoying myself on my bike.
Wishing speedy recoveries to those who are injured at present too.
