Shout out to Byrdman!

I bought a helmet from him yesterday. It was a pretty sweet helmet- Scropion 700.

I finally had the equipment that I thought was nessecary to ride @ 20-35 mph.
A normal leather jacket, sturdy gloves, leather boots, & my new helmet.

Was on my way home from a friend's house at around 10ish. Everything was going great- weather was fine, little to no traffic on the streets, and I was digging the tunes my head was DJing. It was my first time on my ninja 250. I had waited to ride until I at least had a helmet. (have ordered a real jacket and boots from alpinstars- just didn't want to wait for a helmet to come in the mail do I decided to hit up the gear for sale section here).

I'm glad I waited. I was driving at a bit below the speed limit when I was caught off guard by a stop sign. I guess I overreacted by pulling the brake(there may have been a metal man cover- I think the officer mentioned it). Next thing I remember is me walking around like a dummy a bit confused and a lady asking if I was okay. Took off my helmet and gloves- my wrist was deformed and my neck was tender.

At the hostipal I saw my helmet- it was scrapped... A lot. Thing probably saved me from lots more pain and maybe my life. Wrist was broken and my forearm is deformed. Doctor appointments tomorrow to see how bad I am.

Just thought I should thank Byrdman and caution other novice riders to be careful out there.

I have no idea what shape the bike is in. It got towed away and Progressive is visiting the lot it's at tomorrow. I didn't get a chance to pick it back up was busy walking in circles. ? Lol. I was a bit shaken up. Had a neck-brace put on while I was riding in the ambulance so I never got to take anything but glances at it. The EMT guys said it didn't look too bad, but Progressive said they would make my claim high priority because they suspect it's a total loss.

My forearm has broken bone fragments. My knee-caps hurt (will buy those knee-guards before I ride again haha). Nurse said it takes about 6-8 weeks to heal, but I can't wait to get back on.

Glad you are safe doode. Gear for riders is what a 5 star safety rating, seat belts, and an airbag is for cagers. You need it if you wanna keep alive in a crash.

I suggest next time go to a school parking lot or something that's near your house where you can practice emergency maneuvers. Practice hard breaking and swerving. Be safe about it though lol. Learn you bikes braking limits... Actually just learn your bike completely. Its better finding out the limits in an empty parking lot than a street with things that can easily kill you.

+Also MSF if you have not.

I commend you for waiting until you got your helmet before you rode. Obviously it paid off. Hope you make a full recovery. And hey, atleast you got your first fall out of the way, you should be good for a very long time.

If helmet hit ground hard it probably needs to be replaced. I have a xl scorpion 1000, that has seen less than 2000 street miles. If that size works for you, its yours.

If only more people would be like that... Would have made this last couple of weeks brighter. People losing their precious lives left and right.

Heal up!

Maybe lose the music while you ride so you have 100% focus on the road.
