Sorry to hear about your hand. I hope it heals quickly. I got absolutely raped by some trees in a new-trail section of a race over the weekend. Now I feel lucky that I'm just nursing scratches on my face and a tree grudge. I underestimated the branches or my speed through them. Ouch, pulled backwards and broken? Dang. DNF?

I had a bit of an off the about 5 weeks a go and bent my thumb back, still hurting now and really hurts after about 50 -60 miles off road, wife keeps telling me to keep of the the bike, she might be right:lol:

LOL, Not on my 1973 Hodaka Combat Wombat 125. Regular Bark Busters wouldn't have saved me. Didn't even fall.

Yikes. Combat Wombat... Ya gotta love that.

Dwight, you're a brave man riding a bike with a big steel gas tank that protrudes into the "family jewel" area!

I've also broken fingers, mostly pinkies, without ever getting off the bike but I have hand guards on one of my bikes and I'm thinking they help a little.

My last stitches were from starting my CR250R after a rebuild with sandals on and the stupid thing kicked back and actually sent me to the MD with a nice long gash down to the shin bone (I've heard of that happening to nerds so I guess I am one too - and I pay a helluva lot more attention kick-starting now than I have the past 40 years).

Hope you heal well!

Dwight, did you say your left hand? So that means you are getting an auto clutch for 4-6 weeks!:smirk:

Forget the hand! How's the old bike? Hand will heal up fine, old bike parts....well, the aftermarket isn't so kind.
