I got a nail in my front tire and had to change it with only 1,500 miles on it.
How the do you get a nail in a tire with a contact patch the size of a postage stamp!!!

I turn into a little in traffic while on the bike. Since i know it's not the best place for a MC rider, I tend to stay out of it.

glad you know which is the primary brake, are you sure the orig. poster knows that? i'm not, but if you've taken the MSF you DO KNOW THAT.

and no i'm not advocating NOT using your rear brake, but use it properly (not locking it up) the technical term is threshold braking.

i recommend clutching it in 100% (and downshifting) when emergancy stopping. try it, you'll like it.

concentrate on braking vs having to worry about killing your engine while emergancy braking while looking thru the car so as to not hit it.

K.I.S.S.

Glad to hear you're alright Pester. Hope the hands heals up - just keep an eye on it. If by the third day you are not noticing it feeling better, I'd go to the doc.

I don't know about all the third day advice I've been reading- that's for fever?! If it's broken, it needs a splint today. I've broken my hand this year- my second metacarpal, near my wrist. I didn't go to the dr, but after about a month a big calcium deposit formed at the break site- that's how I know it was broken.

There was absolutely no damage done by not going to doc. Nothing wrong with it now- no pain and the funny bump has gone down tremendously- happened in Jan.

So, if you want to know for sure, then go to Doc. If you don't really care, then splint it - at the joint(s) above and below where the pain is, to impede your movement, and wrap it up. Keep it wrapped as long as you need- prob a month if you really think it's broken, though.

** If it's broken near or in your wrist or knuckles it could heal poorly and hinder your movement, you may need surgery- so this advice is really only if you DON'T want to go to Doc. Personally- I don't like 'em. On the plus side, if the pain is that bad doc can give you meds for that- and a note to get out of work if you work with your hands... but that can get $hitty after a while on lower pay or no pay.

I hope that information helps. I know breaks can be painful, sprains (I've heard and I believe) are more painful. I'm sorry you are going through this. Good job on keeping the bike up, though. I hope you're feeling better soon! B

How many chains/ sprockets? Bad habit I'm guilty of sometimes too.

Hope your hands ok Pester.

MSF?

ha ha i won i bet myself he woulda say that

no need MSF cause one rule of MSF is swerve to avoid collision. which i did bad thing my mirror sticks out WHERE IS AZYLUM WHEN I NEED HIM?

and other rule of msf is to keep the bike up which i did too

my rear locked because i hit gravel, and yes i saw that later on

maybe next time my friend

of course i know the front brake is 70% of your braking power but
when someone slams on the brakes while you are changing lanes is a and you know it the marging of time is minimal and either way i got outta the way the right way again only the mirror hit the van all me was safe and outta the way

thanks for your tips girl, i know what a broken feels ask davec lol he saw me

and no this is not a bone pain is a muscle pain because i used too much force to return the bike to the up position it hurts only when i use it
but when i rest it is ok

but yes u r right on that, fractures are a
