Re: The good the bad & the ugly

In Kansas there is no helmet law, nor do I believe there should be. But they are still a great idea. Without violating hippa... i ran a patient who crashed low speed that had they been wearing their helmet they could have walked out he hospital in a few hours but they may not make it. Prayers are with them and just wish people could learn from other peoples mistakes. just a slow hit to the pavement cant kill you.

Re: The good the bad & the ugly

Just thought I'd re-post what this thread is all about..(mainly as I forgot)


It's a sad fact that laying down your pride and joy is part of life for motorcycle owners. If you walk away from it ok then at least you can repair your bike and get back with the program. No matter how badly you crash chances are someone has done a better job of it than you.. I thought we could try a specific section on the site so that we could examine what we could have done, should have done, or could not aviod. How did our saftey gear help us? How hard and how expensive were the repairs and getting back in the saddle? The fireblades "oopps I dropped it" support channel is now live.

Do, or do not, there is no try !
The mind is a funny thing

Re: The good the bad & the ugly

I've always had a one piece set of leathers and a good quality helmet, the leathers have saved my skin from a couple of 30-40mph lowsides that would have taken my skin off.

I always fit R&G crash protectors to the frame, front & rear axles which have also kept repair costs to under £250 to put it perfect again. I love my bike and my skin but have no qualms about pushing my bike to the limit of my capability, I go through a pair of knee sliders every year and normally 2 rear tyres and a front.

I don't understand people who ride in shorts and t-shirts, even if i'm just popping down the shops I'll at least put my timberland boots on and my Dainase leather Jacket. (Helmet and gloves go without saying)

It's one of the unwritten law of af racing. You dont talk about a crashes. But ...

I've had a pretty bad crash. 6 different places on my body. They ware talking about cutting my leg off too - to make the story short. Well my family didn't allow it, so the doctors did their best.
Now, almost 2 years after, I still hurt a bit, but I walk, I ride, I look like nothing ever happened to me.
But I just cant find the old me. I'm aither drunk from pills or alcohol, or pissy at everybody around me. I can act walking straight for couple minutes but I cant act a happy mood for a too long - another way to desribe it.

The reason to bother you with this? Im surre there is milions guys and girls like me out there. Worse then me. Who are still fighting AND WINNING their "races". Id like to get some inspirations from you guys.

Please, let me know.

back in '94 i was at dade city, fl motocross track going over a table top. my throttle stuck in 4th gear, when i launched it seemed as though everything stopped. my thought was to throw the bike away or land on it. i chose to toss it. when i opened my eyes, i could see my left arm broken, and wrist dislocated. l reached down and felt my right femur was broken and my hip also. it ended my off road racing but i still can ride on the street. i decided not to look back and think about what i should have done or if i had stayed home that night. i accept the pain, the plates, screws and rod in my femur.
i still ride and am happy for that. don't look back and think about what happened, look ahead and appreciate what i have.

Dunno if there's a right place to post this in this forum, but... (not a terrible crash or anything gross)

That dude should've been splatted... I hope he realiizes how close he was to a world of major hurt and learns from it. Way too many of those videos out there where that move goes wrong.

Can't help wondering what happens to him when the car driver slams on their brakes? The headline would read "Rider injured after being flung headlong from a car roof..."
