yeah...it sucks. wife knows and reluctantly accepts that I am an adrenaline junkie, but I try to shelter her from seeing me get hurt. I know the risk as well as she, but she is a nurse and she sees alot of first hand damage. She would advise against riding, but would never make me stop what I love to do.

Going about 40MPH I preped for corner and the bike didn't feel planted, so I stood it up and straightend the corner. I jumped the curb and rode about 20 yrds or so, then ate ground! Bike sustained a destroyed frame slider in left side, and a brokes fairing stay. That's it! I hit the ground on top of left shoulder and hyperflexed muscles and fractured clavical. All is great, got good meds and I rode the bike about 4 or 5 miles home. Wife was following me home and DID NOT SEE ME GO DOWN! I am very thankfull for that. Seeing a rider go down will haunt you dreams, all she saw was me off in the field with the bike up and me giving her the thumbs up.

I am getting copies of x-rays and you bet I'll post em. Guys!, BECAUSE I WAS WEARING ALL MY GEAR, I WALKED INTO THE ER AND WALKED OUT AGAIN!!!

I applaude all riders that wear their gear, even when it's hot and uncomfortable, because it allows us to take the hits and keep riding!!

"it's ok, the bike's ok!"

Quote of the year there.
Glad you're ok man, sounds like it was just a momentary mental block.

All the "concrete trailers doing 80mph" comments have me cracking up over here.
Great to hear you had on all your gear AND have a good sense of humor!
