put a 4 inch long 3 inch wide gash in my leg

Post by superman27e » 03:48 pm Aug 20 2014

In the ER now waiting on them to sew my leg up.


Was going up a small steep hill, back tire lost traction and started leaning to the right. Tried to whip the back around but it caught traction, fell even more to the right. In the process of trying not to fall, my hand slipped and I gunned it straight into a brick porch.

Wasn't even going that fast. I was at my brothers house just putting around waiting on him to come ride. Pics later

Hope you have a speedy recovery. I had to take a trip to the ER myself last night. Not a riding accident I just judo-chopped half of my finger tip off with a kitchen knife. :doh: It was my left index so working the clutch with 3 fingers might be a little tricky.

Good luck with your leg! Might be a good idea to invest in some motocross pants with padding

Thanks, guys! And yea, I was wearing shorts just waiting on him. We live like 3 house away from each other, so.

And the clutch def isn't slipping anymore, haha.


Here's a picture. Doesn't really do it justice, though. Nice shiny bone in there :P

You didnt need stitches for that - you could have just rubbed some dirt in it!

almost looks like it cauterized itself on the cut
so did you go riding afterwards?
