    Not really a crash but I scratched past a branch and felt a tug on my ear. Then the trickle of blood down my neck!
    Got back to the van and Maxine from Intense was there shuttling some riders. She said, "Your ear is bleeding!"
    I said "oh yeah! " checked the mirror and saw the flap. Pushed it back.where it belongs....hope it sets. If not I'll have a gnarly scar!

    @rossage, I say you just cut the flap out now and let it heal as a nice opening. Could use it to store bike garb in there for the longer rides... perhaps a tire tube or the like?

    Sorry, can't hear you over the sound of a flag blowing in the wind next to my ear.
