Hey guys, Some of you might know I recently got off the crutches and out of the boot onto my own two feet once again. Happy days. Best part was I could go for a ride again! Friday night I rode to a friends place in Ellenbrook in WA, Perth, for a BBQ. The ride went well, and I was feeling good. Ankle felt absolutely fine, even tried a few hard brakes using the rear brake, no problems. Come Sunday, I got a call from another mate saying him and a friend were going for a ride to Bindoon, do I want to come? Hell yes! Its a ride we've all done heaps of times. We head off to Bindon at 11am, for an excellent ride. We arrive at the pie shop/cafe, im thinking my friends will swing left into the carpark out front of it, so I swing out wide to the right in preperation. Instead they break right too park opposite the pie shop. Ok no worries, I'll just make a hard left turn followed by a hard right turn at slow speed as I've always done. What I forgot though, was the fact that I have very little muscle in my right leg due to the extended period I was in a cast healing up from the broken ankle. So as I turn right at slow speed, I turn a little too hard, plus my friends have stopped, no probs, I'll just take the weight of the bike with my right leg. As I placed it down and the weight went down on my right leg, I realised with a shock that I couldn't support the bike?! There was a horrible moment as I desperately tried to keep the bike up, but my leg couldn't do it, so down I went. It was a controlled drop, ending with me splayed out nicely, foot still under the running bike. I was so pissed off, starting banging my head on the road. My mates didn't realise what had happened for another 5 seconds or so, but soon came over to help. Must have been hilarious for the people sitting outside having a pie. Its easy to forget how weak my leg is, I can walk on it fine now, just a little pain from a strained tendon is all up till now. I limped away from my now parked bike, my leg was aching from the exhertion suddenly placed upon it. Afterwards, I did an inspection, the right side had damage too the fairing from the previous owner. Luckily, didn't seem to be much new damage, just a few more scuffs along the fairing. So I got off relatively lucky. So I learnt a lesson, first time I've ever dropped a bike. Also got to experience the fun of trying to get a dropped bike up... Met two local bikers at the cafe, told them about what happened, one asked if I'd like to try lifting his big bike up, which weighed about 230kg... I said no Morale of the story, be careful getting back into riding after a serious lower body injury! Sorry for the length.
