went up for my first ride up through the black spur today and all went well and it was pretty quiet on the roads which was good for me however towards the end of the road i was stuck behind a truck and as we came around a corner there was a large stick (about the size of my arm) covering the entire length of my lane. I wasn't able to swerve and so hit the stick head on. This actually knocked me up off the bike and i was only holding on by my arms. Pretty scary and painful as i came back i landed on the tank... ouch! Admittedly i was probably travelling to close but lesson learnt. long story short although my bike seemed to ride back fine, is there anything that i should look out for or check after hitting something quite violently like i did?
