Bikes totaled, emergency rooms suck. *updated pics of bike*
So, had an accident today - was leaving the mall, on my way to a job interview, and for some reason as I hit the gas leaving, the throttle stuck, i pulled in the clutch, and not thinking straight, thought that because it slowed down, the throttle was ok, when i let back down the clutch, it jumped up to wheelie, and i pulled in the clutch again, hit the front brake and it locked, bike slid out from under me to the right, and fell to the left, slammed down and hit so hard it did a pivot flip with me on top of it, and slammed down backwards on it's right side, slid on my right leg for about 20 yards, before somehow denting the hood of a parked cadillac, i ended up about 4 inches from a sign post.
I had on a Joe Rocket Ballistic jacket, which held up perfect. I had on khaki's, didn't do well - my timberlands saved me from being any worse, and I should've been wearing gloves. I had my helmet on. Pictures of the bike tomorrow, it's totaled.
