A good medic, that is not concerned about speed too much (because there is no life-threat) will cut along the seams so the leathers can be salvaged. Sometimes, they aren't able to save anything because of the injuries.

If you can talk, you can always request they cut along the seams for you.

Sure, you can take your own leathers off, you don't have to do anything against your will. Of course, if you chose to ignore their advice, you're taking your injuries in to your own hands and likely, they'll have you sign a refusal of treatment "against medical advice".

In the grand scheme of things, losing leathers is nothing compared to losing the ability to walk or speak... or breathe....


Yeah, it's potentially that serious. I have had people the ended up having a cervical fracture but were walking around before I got there, only complaining of minor discomfort. One wrong move or fall, and they would have been eating through an IV for the rest of their lives... if they lived.

Bottom line, you don't have to do anything that you don't want to. The only way that you can be forced against your will to do something is; if you have an altered mental status, or if you are unconscious.

Of course, a smart medic that has some experience under his belt will make it sound like you don't have any choice if he believes you are injured or could have injuries not yet noticeable by you.

Basically, I would have little reservations with many medics out there who advise you to be transported or flown. If they want to cut your leathers off, and you have injuries, look at the big picture. They don't just do it because they can.

Who cares about leathers when your life is at risk. Who cares about anything really when your life is at risk.

Trust a person that has been in a situation that required cutting the leathers off. Leathers are the last thing on your mind and besides that, they are typically under $1500. Not really that big of a deal when it comes to your personal health.

Well I must first say thanks to and my angels... seriously. I don't have a single scratch, bruise, or sore muscle in my body! Of course, I have a massive headache and have no recollection whatsoever of what happened from about noon 'til 6pm... no clue at all.

A huge thanks goes to Dr. Gonzo, Mrs. Gonzo, Robert DaSilva, Allen, Derek, and everyone else who took care of all my gear, bike, etc... y'all are awesome.

Any suggestions on a new track bike?!

glad you made it out ok Todd, we were all worried about you but Buck and the cronies reassured us that you'd be ok.. Alonzo and I talked after he left the hospital and told me you'd be going home that day so its good to see you posting up again. next time, pass the "less experienced" on the inside only!
