Parents might appreciate this, share your stories too! No riding for me lately so this might be long. 2 month old kid at home, haven't ridden in months. Make a deal with the wife; I ride all day, then I'll baby sit at night while she goes out with the girls. Sweet! Off to the track for a spectacular day of riding. Last lap of the day, exhausted and against all reasonable judgement I go for one last bonzai lap. Then, on the roughest part of the track, wfo 3rd gear down a pot holed blue groove strait I get rear end swap so bad the bars are moving almost lock to lock. Don't have the strength to recover and over I go, quite the spectacular dismount. Now if you've never experienced pot holed blue goove at 50-mph sans-bike, I don't recommend it. Thank God for elbow + knee pads and chest protectors! I hit the ground still holding on, the bar gets me in the groin (misses the "important parts" by 1/2") and tears my pants from the zipper to the knee, taking some skin along the way. The bike goes right and I go left, so far apart we're in different zip codes; at some point I apparently hit my right hand. After that "my body hurts and doesn't work anymore" feeling begins to fade, I ride 1/2 lap back to the pits, taking all the jumps and lift the bike back onto the stand using my right hand, which is still working OK. About that time I notice my hand feels a little funny. 10 minutes later it's getting a little stiff. 1.5 hours later it's swolen, slightly bluish and hurts like hell to move at all. Here's the important part, pay close attention. At home I spring in the door, "hey baby I'm home, spectacular ride, go ahead out with the girls and I'll see you later!" That's right, when you get hurt, even broken bones, do not ever let it get in the way of your kid duties!! The wife takes off and i'm on my own with the kid. The first time I set him down, head in my right hand, the pain is so intense I'm seeing stars. Then it registers in my brain; this might not be just a sprain! A few hours later the wife gets home and I have to say, "baby I have to go to the ER". About 8 hours after the crash I get x-rayed and find out I have a broken scaphoid bone in my right wrist (wrong bone to break I've learned). Bah... I got lucky; a couple months in a cast followed by a couple months getting movement back and now I'm 95% back to normal and ready to ride! I do catch a little flack about not changing any poopie diapers for a couple months, but hey I still baby sat!! Sorry for the long story, I need to ride soon!!! Lets hear your stories.
