Post-Crash Blues

So, how do you get back on the road again?

I crashed my motorcycle (2002 Yamaha RS Warrior) three days ago. I lowsided on the interstate, at about 60 mph. My injuries are minor and I realize that I was extremely lucky. But I can't help but feel like I've used all of my crash related luck for this lifetime.

Any of you MO readers out there have any suggestions on how to mentally prepare to get back on the road? I'm concerned that I'm going to be stiff and scared, which is going to make me a bad rider, leading to future crashes.
