At least you could ride your bike back to the truck.

I was riding the Ocala National Forest and hit a tree doing 40mph. Busted most of the spokes in the front wheel, bent the rim and twisted the forks. Bike no longer rolled. The worst part was getting tangled up in the rear wheel as I attempted to bail off. The rear tire shredded my riding pants and my underwear and nearly shredded my junk. It took about 4 hrs to get the bike to the truck. Thank goodness for GPS
