Funny story about my buddy crashing

Okay, first off ... his crash could have been way worse than it was and while the story it self is funny, his gear saved his life and without it this story would be very very different.

So my buddy in California went riding this weekend through some nice backroad twisties with his group of friends and ended up taking a turn a little too wide and got into a patch of loose gravel on the outside shoulder ... lowsided and slid off the road and down the wooded hill side. When his friends got to him, he was alive very sore but alive. 911 was called and the EMTs were on the way ...

Now, he had just gotten a brand new one peice Dianese and didn't want the paras to cut it off him, so he got his friends to help him get his upper body out of it ... in doing so they ended up dislocating his shoulder ... AND while they were all doing this, no one noticed that they were in a large patch of poison ivy ... so, not only did he mess up his shoulder, but he also ended up getting poison ivy all over him.

The trauma of all of this ends up sending his wife into labor (she was 5 days short of her due date). Oh and the paras did cut up is leathers anyway.

Lucky guy. Could have been the other direction and hit an oncoming car. Bet he remembers the next "spirited" ride...

And congrats on the new baby!! LOL!!

i have a buddy that i let borrow my leathers so he could go to the track while i was out of town. He lowsided on the way to the track doin about 130 or so. He was knocked out right when he hit the pavement. He woke up in the ambulance just in time for him to tell them not to cut the leathers off because they were not his. They didn't cut them off. They peeled them off of him when he had a broken shoulder blade, dislocated shoulder, broken hand, four broken ribs, and a sprained ankle. he was okay and the leathers wre too. The doctor said the leathers held his arm on and that they saved his life. I'm glad i let him borrow them. They had a little hole on the shoulder that we got patched and just a few minor scuffs. They were a lot tougher than i thought they were. He's pretty tough too to deal with all the pain of stripping leathers off a broken body.

If he has insurance, the insurance will cover the leathers in case of an accident. Now if he does, that would be really funny because then all the fuss would've really been over nothing.

By the way, I had told my EMTs not to cut off the leathers but they wouldn't hear any of it. I did complain about backpain so maybe that is what made them cut off no matter what I was mumbling...

getting in a accident days before the wife is supposed to pop is no way to do things. 10 to 1 she says "the bike has to go" and he is gonna have no room to stand on.

He's got good insurance ... or should ... no reason why he wouldn't (i.e. he can afford it). Yeah, it was (in his words) the last time he'd be able to go out and hang with the boys, so this was going to be his last time out for a long time ... I guess now it really will be.

His wife is really cool though, I don't think she'll make him get rid of the bike ... though she's more that she's having to take care of two people right now. His arm is in a sling and should be okay in a couple weeks. His CBR is trashed, not sure what the insurance is going to do, but he laughed about making it a track bike now and getting a new street bike.

Skid's CBR was totalled because plastics and all are so expensive. He ended up turning it into a trackbike. It makes a great trackbike!

Good point. I didn't think about that. She would win that one for sure.
