Was riding up at the Black Spur near Marysville on Sunday, doing about 70/75kph when i started to round a r/h when i hit a small bit of debris which caused the bike to kick out. Took my hand off the throttle (mistake i think)and the bike stood up and i went straight off the road onto the dirt. I remember swearing, rolling, lowsiding off the bike etc and then came to stop courtesy of a tree stump. My bike smashed into a large log (not the one that was poking out of my ass). Bike is a writeoff but i can replace that. I am pretty sore all over but my biggest injury is my shattered shoulder - humerus bone. Got surgery on thursday to get plates and bolts etc in my arm to fix it. Never had a broken bone before and i have done a real good job this time. A fellow biker that i was riding with helped me out straight after the crash and it was very comforting having someone there that i knew. Off chops at the moment on hospital juice but still feel pretty wacked out. Not sure how long i'll be off from work at this point but at least it will give me time to look for a new bike. Yes, i want to ride again once my body has healed. I love it!! This email has taken me wayyyyy too long to type - one finger and all so i'll go now. Just thought i'd share my first off bike experience.
