PostSubject: First crash   Mon May 17, 2010 10:34 am

Thursday evening - out riding with the wife & a friend of ours - first day with my new armored jacket, gloves & helmet. Hit a curve doing 20-25'ish, hit gravel, go down go boom.

bruises on left elbow & shoulder (where I rode the pavement), hip, knee, and rivits on boots were bent closed. Jacket - has a couple marks on it, thats it. Helmet got a little bit of a rash. Bike - pretty good - hit the rear turn signal (still works), back shock, and knocked the handlebar end cap off (went back in).

Overall - I'm just a bit sore - and other than the broken (and currently super-glued) left rear turn signal - not too much damage. Smile

Yup - pavement sliding sucks. The soreness is going away.

Thanks to my gear - I'm alive, and no 'real' road rash. A bit of a scrape on my elbow - and that's about it. My glove was scrapped a bit, and the boots too. Oh - I did bend the peg back almost 90 degrees - we got it bent back to almost normal. Smile

Good ride on sunday! The local CMA had a small blessing of the bikes - and bbq. Rode for the first part for about an hour - then had to head home for a cousin's graduation. That was quite fun. . .Smile

That blows! Glad to hear though that there are no significant injuries.

Big Smile - yup. Doing fine. Arm feeling better (it was the most hurt).

Since we got our "M" endorsement, and our bike, we've logged around 700 miles - give or take. It's been less than a month. . . Yesterday I commuted to work - about an hour - and it was good. Smile

Had my first one on 11-10-10. Heading northbound in the suicide lane in rush hour traffic, a truck decided to pull right in front of me, so I had to lay it down. I remember nothing between striking the edge of the truck until I landed on my ass in the middle of the road. I shattered my left heel and bruised my knee significantly. Bike is totalled. I've had two surgeries in the last two months, one to reconstruct the heel and install a steel plate, the other to address two infections I picked up. Finally on the mend and making good progress as of this week, but I'm still on IV antibiotics to make sure the infection is good and gone.

That is terrible! That really sucks!! I am sorry for you. In a flash everything goes from bliss to disaster.

I learned in Driver's School (punishment for disobeying the traffic laws) that even the finest cyclist will EVENTUALLY become the victim of another motorist (usually a non-bike).

I hope that you will heal completely both physically and spiritually. This was not a calculated act by the driver of the truck.
