Hey all, funny after only just really introducing myself that i get to post about an accident so soon.:grin: On Sunday me and a heap of mates were on a ride around the bush, on our dirtbikes, just outside of Gellibrand (between Lavers Hill and Colac). I had been down this track( beside a road) a million times, but not for a while since the last. Travelling at an estimated 80km/h, i saw something that wasn't there last time. A bulldozer had cut two dirty great ditches across the track, first one was about a metre deep and across, then a 3 metre break until the next one. Here lies the problem, the ground on the other side of the second ditch was pushed up into a big mound of earth, about a metre and half above the ground between the two ditches No time to react/think. Too late for the brake, lent back and wound on the power. Power lifted the front wheel up and over the first trench, and both wheels landed at the same time between ditches. Couldn't lift the front up and hit the mound at pace. The mound launched the bike up "a couple of metres" into a nose-dive position, with me doing a superman/ruler crusty demon impression over the front. Time slowed, and i can vividly remember seeing my hands on the bars whilst sailing through the air, with the ground rushing towards me. Landed on my head/left shoulder first, then left side hip area slapped down hard, and a bit of a roll. I was facing back the way i came and my bike was close behind me, revving off the limiter. I was well winded, but didn't lose consciousness, everything felt busted up, so i didn't hardly move. I ran my right hand along my right collarbone, and then compared it to the left. When i felt the broken pieces in my left collarbone moving, all the pain set in. My left side hurt severly when i tried to make any movement, but when i laid still i ran my hand under the kidney belt and all of my side felt numb. I took my goggles off, and my friends helped me with my helmet. I felt sick and as thou i was going to pass out, so i lay in the recovery position, whilst we discussed if it was worthwhile getting help or not. The whole time i had been coughing and swallowing a lot, and it only just occured at around that time i didn't have a cold. I coughed and spat on my hand and coated it with blood . After that everything seemed very real and it sealed the deal about an ambulance. The ambulance arrived around 30 minutes later with two police cars. The ambo's put me in a neck brace and on a back board and gave me two morhine injections, the magical green stick, and something so i wouldn't get sick. In the meantinme the police were talking with my friends getting all the details. At hospital i had X-rays to my neck, left hip, and left collarbone. The collarbone was in three pieces, but fairly aligned. They were worried about my internals bleeding, and there was a lot of blood in my urine. After an ultrasound the doctor thought it best to have me stay the night, and i got out yesterday around 3:00pm. Feeling a bit flat today and having a lot of trouble just moving around the house, but work have been awesome about it all and i have a certificate for two weeks off at this stage. Looks like a lot of dvd's and internet for the next few weeks. EDIT: Was talking to one of the fella's there and he stepped out 28 metres from where the mound was to where i ended up. Thanks.
