Unhappy 15 mph spill

Well, that's it, I'm outta commision for a while here. I took a low speed crash over some loose gravel in a construction zone. I ended up with a gigantic hole in my left foot, some road rash, and a dinged up 919 The good news? Percocet !!!

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers, and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls... Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked in a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can." HST

Just remember to ask your doctor for some T3s and time off work/school. It's fun

Bummer!! I guess you will be picking gravel out of your wound for awhile. But just wash those percocets down with a cold one & take care until you're back on 2 wheels. Of course you will be in my prayers, should I put in a word for your bike

R6steve, twisty roads lead to twisted minds.

Cool

Thanks Aris! The foot is still banged up, but maybe in a few weeks. I NEED TO RIDE!

Sorry to hear about your fall! Hope you get well soon, and get back on your bike.

Question, though.

What were you wearing, on your feet, too get such a "gigantic hole" at 15 MPH

Ride Well

Well, let's just say that any rider who says, "I'm just going for a casual ride today - nothing crazy, hence, I don't need all that gear for this ride," is fooling themselves. However, that is exactly what I said to myself. Two hours later I was laying in the back of an ambulance w/ the paramedics saying they couldn't find a pulse in the foot (is that why it turned so blue?).

Go buy as much protective gear as you can afford - it's not worth loosing life/limb.

(P.S. - the foot stayed on - THANK GOD! )

Red face

Actually, let me clarify - I was wearing a pair of leather Sketchers. Don't laugh, because I know many people wear less - even sneakers.
But with the shear weight and force of the bike, it just fell over on it's left side and the shifter ended up punching through the shoe - leaving a nice big gaping wound down to the bone.

um sketchers being sneakers, boots, what? I was gonna get a set of alpinestars boots this week but I don't know they've got any more protection on the *top* of them than normal hiking boots.
