What did you do to your WR today?

How about a pic of what my WR did to me today?

h7N3u.jpg

I was coasting down this really steep/rocky mountain trail riding the brakes when my front tire got crossed up when it bounced into a rut. It threw me off the bike and I guess my palm landed on a fairly sharp rock as I caught myself; all of a sudden my hand's super warm, I look down and it's just spewing blood everywhere -- not only blub-blubbing out because I hit something major, but also spraying due to the fact I managed to sever an artery as well. Also got a few tendons! Sick.

I honestly didn't think I'd make it back out of the desert at the rate it was bleeding. I had about a half mile to walk before I was back at a main road. Luckily though I'm healthy and it coagulated really quickly. It was weird, even the blood coming off me was thickening and by the time I got picked up there were two huge drops hanging off the side of my palm like icicles.

And hand injuries are the absolute worst, let me tell you. There are so many nerve endings and all kinds of sensitive things in there that this has been some of the worst pain of my life... and I've done some serious harm to my body before this. I was getting Dilaudid IV'd as often as they could give it to me while in the hospital.

Pretty shitty overall.

Boy I never road with a medical kit until I started riding with my boys. Since then I have always had one. Gotta be the responsible dad and it seems to have taught the boys to do the same. When they go for a ride with out me the first aid kit is just as much a part of the ride as tools and water. I do not have Quickclot in my pack but I think I am going to get it now.

WOW I woulda freaked, I saw a guy on YouTube that broke his finger clean off when he fell on rocks. I'll put the link

I added a seat pad and some luggage today.

The KLR owner in me decided to keep things on the cheap with the Walmart ATV seat pad and Mad Dog ATV tank panniers to use as saddle bags. They are attached to each other with heavy duty Velcro so everything is very secure.

The Moose Racing rear fender bag has been kicking around my garage for several months.

if you need saddle bags, get Giant Loop... only ones worth the money IMO

You're just jealous :applause:

Found a crack in my stock rim, but that was just the straw that broke the camels back. My rim was bent to hell and needed replacing anyway. I laced a Warp 9 rim with new stock spokes to my stock hub and threw a Perelli MT43 trials tire on it. Never used a trials tire before, but have heard great things about this trials hybrid tire for gnarly trail use. Can't wait to try it out.

It's certainly not for little kids. My elderly butt loves that stupid looking seat cover though.

Yesterday I ordered a Trail Tech Vapor computer and today a set of Pirelli XCMH tires.
