Learned my lesson today about riding rodes *pic*

Recommended Posts

Yeah I thought I would be cool and do a wheelie down the road in 3rd so it was kinda fast and the rear tire spun on tar and caught grip.

Heres the after math lol

Wow. As bad as that is, I am glad its not more serious. Pavement sure hurts. I remember the nurse cleaning my rash with that dammed plastic toilet brush. Did you see a Dr?? As a matter of fact I think she may have used toilet cleaner.

At least you did not brake your back like I did,I use to go to Gordons well desert all the time and ride wheelies showing off in the big sand bowls doing wheelies around them with a paddle on,I always thought looping it in the sand would be a lot less painfull but I found out the hard way,there was no sliding action at all,it was just a sudden stop,OUCH,since I am so addicted to doing wheelies had to quit going to the sand,now I go to a place with a lot more hard pack.

You got lucky and so did I two weeks ago...

Dumped my 250f around a turn going a good 45-50 mph on blacktop. Back tire slid out and I slid about 50-60ft. across it onto the roads shoulder. Bike got scratched plastic and ripped grip. I had exactly what your arm looked like except on both arms and way worse. both forearms and my right wrist was real bad. You are possibly smarter then me though, I kept riding with blood and gravel all in my cuts for another good hour since it happened within the first 10mins. of our ride. Then I just went to a friends and cleaned it up.

Heal up quick and showers are painful for about a week...

I went down on the chip seal once doing a wheelie. Had a gash about 1/4" deep down my right forearm. Never again will I goof around on the pavement.

This is also what can happen when you do wheelies on the road.....

I did the same thing when I was 18, but i was going 170mph and spent 5 1/2 week in the burn center. Black top does not play! Nobbes + Concrete = Hurt Ass or Arm.🙂
