My first car was totaled when a truck lost a wheel and went in front of me on the freeway. My car was completely smashed to bit but I walked away. I didn't even touch the airbag

And I always seem to slow down before I pass up cops... it just happens.

I think I'm lucky... others may think im unlucky for getting in those situations in the first place tho :P

You sir, may be right. I'm not the type to go to the wall either tho... I felt comfortable with my speed and surroundings... that is until my bike disappeared from under me

looks like a nasty fall judging from the rash, glad you're still cool with only a small part of your missing

if i were you, i'd still get kneepads; riding pants that aren't leathers will take away the rash, but not the impact of the hard concrete on your knees. rash can heal but if you up your knees you're screwed

"proper riding pants" should include knee pads, whether they already have them or you use a secondary set.

cheap protection FTW.

How do you plan on dressing the wound?

Ever heard of Tegaderm, or second skin? I discovered it after a few painful days of changing out gauze pads and peroxide. Apparently I was doing it wrong, lol. Clean the wound the first time, slap on the Tegaderm, and forget about it for a few days. works great.


EDIT: Oh, and sorry to hear about your crashes.

I'm very fortunate. After looking at my bike some more things turned out way better than I thought it did. I thought my bike was going to rape my and take my moneys... turns out all I need is the right piece of my tail assembly, a right foot peg and brake pedal, and a front brake lever. There is some rash on my tank and swing arm, but ima just sand down the swing arm and paint my entire frame black like I've always wanted. As for the tank all I need is a new frame puck to replace the old one and cover up the scar. Passenger peg is but I don't need em so I'm going to remove the passenger pegs for a cleaner look. Same goes for the blinker and mirrors. I'm upgrading to bar-mount mirrors and better less 18wheeler looking turn signals. Wrapping the pipes too.. and doing a fender elimination like I always wanted lol.

Now I have a reason to do all these things!!! Funny how things turn out.

I poured rubbing alcohol on my and scrubbed with a soft toothbrush to get the dirt and little rocks out like a bauss.. I had big square bandaids laying around too so I just slapped one on.

you've had 2 close call in as many days

how long have you been riding?

how many do you get before you end up dead? you can chalk it up to "bad" luck.........or you need to your riding skills and situational awareness.
