ive wrecked twice the first time was december 7th 2007 and the second was december 8th 2008. needless to say im superstitious so i dont really like to ride in the month of december anymore but i will this thursday lol

1st time i had to have knee surgery, 9 stitches in my chin , concussion and fractured my shoulders.

2nd time i busted the same knee open (18 stitches) and 19 in the other with a chipped knee cap (take it from me, wear your knee pads) and i also broke my left arm......and im left handed which sucked.

soon as i got my cast off i was in the garage seein if i could pull the clutch in and gettin on the bike to see if my knees could even handle bein on a bike. i dont have it in me to leave riding alone.

Thankfully when i wrecked i never broke any bones like yall, and i am glad to hear that ll of yall are ok. i remember when i went down getting back up regaining my composure putting the chain back on and riding back to work, everyone knew i wrecked. the one thing that me off was when i got back i was sitting down in front of my bike and the boss came up and said "i cant pay you to sit around" OMG i just wanted to fukking hit him so bad. i dont understand people saying like that or "that was awsome" when you wrecked. It takws a lot of to get back up i feel sorry for the people that dont understand that riding is a passion and some of us cant help ourselves.

sorry if i was thread jacking.

It was more in reference to those that go gearless while railing the minis.

Crashed five times on three different bikes street/track over the years. Broke 3 ribs and two vertebrae, messed up some metataursals, got a collarbone or two, jacked up my right rotator, lost some skin, couple concussions (with helmets) and sprained a finger. All of the other significant damage I've had was from cars and other items including a couple teeth/jaw, broken sternum, another collarbone, shattered left leg, more concussions, broken fingers/hand/wrist and right arm, two herniated discs, whiplash, semi-severed left thumb and a few assorted bumps and bruises.

You either ride or you don't. You have to make up your mind. If the answer's yes, then you need to get your head right and get back on - hopefully having learned something that you can apply in the future.

I broke my ribs and back on an R6 back in 1999. I remember lying there with the wind knocked out of me knowing that my back was effed up and that I might be paralyzed. As soon as I raised my head a little and could see that I was able to wiggle the tips of my boots, I knew that it would be OK. It still took a while to recover.

My good (and arguably insane) friend Rob Devlin had a Ducati SS with flatslide 41mm Kehins and a high-comp big bore kit. He does stage lighting for a living and was headed out on tour for 8 months. The conversation was something like this:
"I'm gonna be gone for 8 months and you don't have a bike. I'm leaving my Duc with you, 'cause if you don't ride soon you might not ride again and that would suck. If you F#$K it up, fix it and DON'T EVER TELL ME ABOUT IT." Rob understood well, as he nearly died two years prior as a result of a crash.

I was still wearing a back brace/frame and had to wear it on the outside of my leather. I needed help from friends to get on and off the bike, but I rode. I showed up at my back surgeon's office holding my helmet and jacket, and got an earfull from him about "apparently not learning anything." I'd learned a lot though. I learned that I was nowhere near the rider that I thought I was and that my crash was due to my own lack of skills and judgement. That's when I started doing race schools and track days. I crashed a few times after, but generally due to unseen environmental issues (pile of rocks strewn mid-corner on a blind curve) or just pushing it too hard on a track day.

The hardest thing sometimes is getting on after burying a friend and we've buried a few, but in the end you either ride or you don't.

I've been there. My avatar is an actual x-ray of my left leg. I've also had a broken collarbone, knee surgery, tons of road rash, blood transfusions, and have been clinically dead three times.

The first get-off is the hardest. Getting back on as soon as possible is key. My last one was rough because I couldn't walk right for about six months, so I was off the bike for a long time. If you and your bike are able, ride it again the next day or even the same day. You'll feel better faster.

I've been down three times since '02. First one a drunk tried to change lanes and nearly hit me in the process, laid the bike down at 45mph. Second time was in Houston in a turn. Back tire washed out at 25mph due to oil on the road I believe. Hit the pavement, caught too much friction due my backpack, and was thrown into a flip. Learned how to roll in the tad bit of Aikedo I've had. Saw pavement coming toward my head, ducked and rolled. Not even a scratch on my helmet. Third time I was riding the loop in Dallas, car hit the breaks in front of me, I overreacted when I hit the front break and actually pulled the on the hand grip hard enough to make the bike lay down at 55mph

All three times I walked away with virtually no injuries at all, and not even sore if I remember correctly. I always had my gear on, and I think I've had an angel or two watching my back.
