Glad your ok man! Gear is good. Another lesson would be to not use your rear brake.

Why? The rear brake, when used correctly, works great.

Nice battle scars; good to hear that you're mobile....

Gotta scrub, if cold water makes if feel better, get a small brush to speed it up or a wash cloth if you wanna do it over time... I recommend if it burns to put it underwater so you don't feel it till the end. then slap on some neosporine and left that puppy dry before a fan to help it...

As for the science behind the gym thing mentioned earlier... when ur muscles are pumped you react to your bike a lot different... I don't do it anymore cause it feels so awkward. But i go till no more energy at the gym

Those are some wicked looking wounds. Almost makes me a little scared to ride. Definetly reassured my desire to wear all my gear. I hope you heal up quickly. Take care of yourself.

I don't know how it works with someone else's insurance. If you go to the doc first and pay and then have their insurance reimburse you or if they pay for it up front? I guess call the car driver's insurance and see how they will handle it.

I can't believe how many times people on this board mention WEARING YOUR GEAR and the same amount of post come back of accidents involved w/o gear worn.
I suppose that it's beating a dead horse to keep trying to help new riders and informing them of the importance of their gear :/:

Go to the hospital and get the bill; that is your 'personal interest' that you can charge to the insurance company for the concern of your health. Don't wait on them, your visit was unscheduled and not anticipated. Their driver's actions required you to visit....

Then see your family doc or ask him to refer you to a plastic reconstructive surgeon. When you go to the plastic surgeon, refuse the skin graph he may suggest and ask to get a prescription for a woundcare center at a hospital. That is the cheapest solution for you.

Ask other folks on here, treating these type of wounds can easily end up costing you $1000 on cremes and gauze and stuff if you do it on your own. Unless the insurance will also reimburse you for all receipts you get from walgreens but that is still a lot of work messing with on your own.
