Just got outta hospital yesterday (friday) after a crash on monday arvo. was riding a friends kx100 2 stroker, out the front of his house. I was doing some wheelies and stoppies, generally showing off (easy to do on a 2 banger dirty). I had been on the back of lukes Gixxer 1000 all day, wearing all the top gear, and got on the dirty with draggins, boots, and helmet. no gloves or jacket. The last stoppie i did was a good one, but a little too high, and as it was coming down i accidentaly rolled on the throttle, in second gear. The rear touched down, pushing the front wheel foreward (under brakes), spitting me off. I landed on my left hand and face. The helmet is wrecked, visor broken and a big crack down the side. if i wasnt wearing it, i might be dead. my hand has 4 breaks and a double dislocation. It didnt hurt on the spot, and i tried popping it back into place while the adrenaline was still there, but no luck. Its since been operated on (thankyou to all the staff and generally sexy nurses at the Austin) with a plate and six screws. very sore, lots of painkillers. I never go out without gear on, even 40 plus days couriering in the city. It goes to show that had i been wearing my technics gloves, my wrist would not have been as bad. The helmet was an afterthought too, luckily i was wearing it. Heres my Xray. ride safely everyone.. apologies for spelling/grammar, but writing with one hand and doped up on meds.
