pictures of the damage is on some other website..

GEAR UP..
i agree on the knee pads but if your hitin up back roads i recommend you to get sum leathers and sum boots(tennis shoes r a big NONO..atleast over the ankle leather boots)...u can find sum decent ones within a coupla hundred bucks..trust me its well worth the it..and like u said earlier saves pain/doc bills..etc..i dont think u'd have that roadrash on ur arm if u had leathers on..most mesh jackets hold up but not all...a leather jacket is a good way to go..glad ur okay

But a big +1 on getting knee pads.

Plus when you drag knee you don't bleed, just get a hole in your pants/jeans

Knee pads are good to ensure you dont end up with a 1/2 dollar sized hole in knee and good for streetcowboy to do his thing w/ J-Row ... jk buddy

Yes sir... the knee pads were pushed down as I rolled and it seems the frame slider or peg caught my knee... the frame slider looks like a sharp knife now... but I guess thats ok since I rolled at like 110 - 130 mph... lol

ouch... i figured you did... haven't seen race leathers that didn't have them. Just had to clarify for the young ones that can still happen even with the proper gear.

Dang A.J.!! I'm really sorry to hear you went down, Bro

I took a look at those pads you wear and I agree they look really good to wear under jeans. If you're hitting it really hard, though a 2-piece wouldn't be a bad idea. There's some bargains around, you just have to look.

Feel better!!
JSC
