2 friends crashed on Saturday with dumbass circumstances

Ok, I have a couple of friends that had some pretty bad crashes on Saturday, in different cities aggravated by some stupidity.

Number 1 was on his Kawashitty and went over tracks on an uphill while revving it and when the front came down it went tank slapper and right into a curb. No gear, wearing tshirt, flip flops and shorts. Skin on knees gone to the bone, rash from his face to his hip, broken wrist, skin grafts and all kinds of . Got out of the hospital yesterday after one surgery. I would always get on him for not wearing gear and he would kinda give me this "just cause you always tell me, now I will for sure not wear gear cause I am smart and know how to ride" attitude. Way to go, dude.

Number 2. In San Antonio. He left a friend's hotel, too a right hander and got side swiped, from what I hear. No details yet. 2 surgeries so far to repair a broken leg in 5 places, broken hip, rash, bruised spine, rashed from head to toe. Skin grafts are next. No gear, as well. He doesnt like how uncomfortable it is and who needs it anyway, he has never had a prob. Lucky for him, when he went flying, he hit whatever he hit with he lower part of his body 1st so no serious had trauma. He would have landed head first, he would have lost his head, literally.

I know gear would not have prevented every injury, but would have prevented a lot of them. Now instead of broken bones, they both have to deal with the added pan of severe road rash to the equivalent of 3rd degree burns on large portions of their bodies. I cannot imagine healing after any broken bones I have had with the added discomfort of having to grow a lot of skin back.

Sucks man. Glad they're both alive. Maybe it will be a lesson learned, if they ever decide to ride again.

I don't know how people don't wear gear. I've tried wearing sun glasses before with my helmet on and faceshield off in hot days. Dries my contacts out like crazy.

No way I'd go without anything else.

if they thought gear was uncomfortable then they're going to hate the out of the next few months of their lives.

Good luck to them and I hope everything turns out well in the end.
