Just reading this. You have every right to complain even though you didn't. I remember years ago before leash laws and dogs would chase motorcycles. They would go for the front wheel which spelled disaster.

I hope that you're better now!

If you don't mind me asking, about how fast were you going when you went down?
The speed limit down here in alabama is 45 mph on county rds I was doing a little less than that as there was a stop street ahead ,no speeding involved ,
There was a lady standing fairly close and saw it all , the bike after hitting the dog I was off it but it went strait down the road for maybe 100 ft or more before falling over ( wide tire on back ) the sheriff figured I was flying but this lady at 77 set the record strait what a beauty gal 100 lbs 5 ft and feisty and a sweet heart ,when I went back to thank her 2 days ago the hugs were unbelievable super people !
