The cattle moved out of the way but little did I know that one of the bastards would have me off on the ride back

Riding back and one of them runs out, I swerve to miss it, hit a rut and come off.
Hopefully I will feel okay tomorrow, initially it was only the right palm and wrist that was causing discomfort but that eased as the day went on, now its my right ankle that’s hurting more.
I could smell petrol so quickly got the bike up, it took a bit of starting as its equipped with Luddite technology (a crappy carburettor) whereas on the FI equipped 250 it just instantly started whenever it went over
