How to ruin a great day of riding

Recommended Posts

:cry::rant:

Beautiful day for riding, my youngest son and I decided to go for a little ride up behind the house.  Had a lot of fun, did some slow technical stuff and some not so slow blasting.  We were on our way home, 5 minutes from the house on a trail at the top of the ridge that I've ridden literally a thousand times.  The sun was playing shadow tricks, but I was having fun hauling ass on some whoops.  Suddenly, a big tree root in the middle of the trail that I usually avoid without even thinking reached out and grabbed my front tire :rolleyes: .  Over the bars I went, the bike somersaulted a couple times, landed on me and knocked the wind out of me real good.  I'm sitting there trying to catch my breath, my son rolls up and pulls the bike off of me.  I looked down, and son of a b!tch my left wrist now had 2 extra 45* bends! :shocked:   Needless to say I ended up in the ER, fractured wrist up into the joint that is going to require surgery, along with some very painful bruised ribs.  Looks like that's the end of my fall and winter riding. :facepalm::cry::cripple:

 

So how was your day? ;)

Ah crap! I'm sorry.

I haven't broken anything in awhile.

I didn't think you had trees. Just rocks!

Next Thursday will be the first ride in a year and a week.

I hope you can get away with a fraction of that time. 

 

Have fun and be careful!

Ouch dude. I've broken a number of bones over the years. Hope everything heals well. Listen to your doctor, then begin PT when you get the okay.

 

Pretty close to a year ago I broke my collarbone in a bad wreck.  Now, a year later... :rant:

Damn! Sorry to hear that. Heal fast, and well.

 

We're you running a damper?

 

No, and I don't know if it would have made a difference, I was hauling ass and hit that root hard.

Last Friday night at the track i went over a corner hip. Like i did a thousand times. New to a 450. The fn engine brake kicked in after shutting off the throttle and it made me highside. Had to work this weekend on a side job with a hurt shoulder and lower back

Oh no!  Heal up quick.  Guess you'll be typing one handed for awhile.  Are you right, or left handed?
