Haha! Yup!

Both my legs are quite sore today. My left kmnee took the brunt of the external damage. Knocked the breath out of me too. I sat there and let traffic work it’s way around me. Not smart, I was frickin’ stunned! I’m positive that the spill was operator error. Been thinking on that a bit. Reckon I was going too fast to stop in the required distance or do a mid manuever course correction.

All accidents are preventable. It’s true. Need to be more careful until I get comfortable on the beast. Got a healthier bit of respect for that piece of machinery. Paid in skinned knee! *laughs*

I’m thinking it may be a nice quiet day here at La Casita. Or at least at home. *grins*

Still got issues with the charger for the bike battery. I’m going to have to insist on a warranty replacement, I bet.

Mine was when I'd picked up a 2nd hand bike with toe clips installed. Day 2 of getting used to them I was on a bike path slowing for a busy road intersection and could get my toes out fast enough. Everything stopped, except me. Plant, scrape, and of course the rattle of the bicycle getting the asphalt. Big enough audience. Two women came over to see if I was OK. I'm OK, I'm just an idiot who's a little shocked to be on the ground. Probably not what I said, but about how felt. I took those toe clips off as soon as I got home.

Take it easy.

Ha! I think that's best. All I need is to be bumping this thing. I'm doing some of that here too. What can I say? I'm clumsy. Been using neosporin. No bactine inna the house. And if I'm gonna bleed on something I'druther it was my something. So yeah. Home is where my knee is.

And leaving it out in the open to dry up some. Kinda fugly there.

I've used honey on road rashes with astonising results- as in few scars.
YMMV of course. Your Mangling May Vary.

Machines really DO want to make us bleed.

As for the charger- I've seem Microprocessor charger/battery systems that have NVRAM in both- really DO need several full charge to discharge cycles before they sync up and play nice. Often there's a poorly documented non-intuitive "NVRAM Zero" sequence of things like disconnecting a lead with charger connected or not- thence removing ac mains power from charger- waiting for time out- thence replug mains- thence replug controller plug as one I saw several years ago for a powered wheelchair.

DO NOT HOT PLUG STUFF TILL COMPETENT SERVICE DEPT INSTRUCTIONS TO DO SO ARE VALIDATED.

Get well.

Ouchies on the sore legs!

Huh, that's not good that you were stunned. Accidents happen. That's why they are called accidents. You don't know they are going to happen until they happen! (Pooh Bear wisdom). I'm glad you have worked out what went wrong so that you won't do it again.
