I'll plan on getting the Sidi Vertigo Corsa's. They are race boots. They are expensive but looking at my foot now, it is worth it. I could not even think of what it would look like had a car hit me. I already spent close to the amount of the boots on bandages and cremes and co-pay. :eh:

There are also the Sidi Vertigo's but where my boot got shredded through, they look the same like the Jasmine's. The Corsa's at least have another strap going over that part. I am at the point where I just want the best gear I can afford. The chances of exactly that happening again are low but when I get back on, I'll need all the confidence I can get.

No problem. At least you have someone to take care of you.

What kind of gear were you considering buying next? There doesn't seem to be a lot of options for girls.

I crashed in full leathers and they did their job. I had a carpet burn on my right knee and needed two stitches on the left elbow but reason for that was, the jacket wasn't tight and the armor had shifted. The leather was still intact though. The jacket was a Joe Rocket Blaster and the pants were First Gear Pilot Leather pants. They held up really good but were cut by EMT. That was on the track.

On the street, I've used an Alpinestars Stella jacket with CE padded armor and a backprotector (which I didn't even wear at the track ), I usually wear Joe Rocket Cleo pants and my Sidi Jasmine boots. I think I will go to a Leatherjacket on the street now and upgrade to textile pants, probably. Leatherpants for weekend riding. We'll see.

Man, you are going to get hot. You should look at Aerostitch. Ask radar about it.

Good call on the gloves. Gotta protect the hands. You don't want to mix blood, tar, and rocks with that sirloin burger if you went down at 25 mph.

dangers of acetaminophen

Most pain medications are metabolized in the liver, not the kidneys (although too much of any drug can induce renal failure). The maximum recommended dose for acetaminophen is 4 grams a day. Vicodin has a lot of acetaminophen and therefore you should NEVER take tylenol (of any kind) when also taking vicodin (without checking with your doctor) I've seen a lot of people die in a lot of horrible ways but liver failure is BY FAR the worst!! I should add that just a few beers and a couple of 5/500 vicodin are enough to permanently damage your liver That's the end of the lecture...you may carry on.
Debra

Patricia, sorry about your experience. Hopefully you will get better with each passing day.

Exactly why Tetrahydrocannabinol should be legalized in all states as a canidate to be used for pain management.

Thanks, at the moment I am not taking more than 4 Tylenol (2 mg) at night. I am out of hydrocodone, so no worries there about mixing them.

Good info though. Scary, actually. Thanks for sharing.

For serious, acute pain I would recommend fentanyl. It is much stronger than morphine and can be administered via a transdermal patch ( decreases likelyhood of nausea). It is also available as a lozenger. It is mainly utilized for pain management in cancer patients but I was able to get it with my first crash....best ambulance ride of my life deb

I think graced us with many natural / better choices but, somebody in the U.S. goverment decided that corporations had a better solution.

Anyways, if you have to speak to somebody more then once about safety gear then you are probably wasting your time. Otherwise, by the best stuff you can afford and Suzanne at M-U is great with getting people into the right gear.

If it's too hot for gear, it's too hot to ride...


I don't even golf when it's like this and they let you drink and drive on a golf course.
