Almost died.

Sorry to disappoint =( . Extremely close call today after the 2 hour ride coming home. Not speeding, no wheelies, just not paying attention. Really lucky to be here I love you guys! Can't wait to ride tomorrow.

I crashed mine today.. It was my first crash ever. The bike landed in soft wet grass and the damage is only cosmetic but It was a high side and I was thrown a good distance from the bike. I landed on my shoulder and rolled for a while. Almost landed on ditch rocks.. It was a combination of not paying enough attention to the curve and and letting my instincts **** up control of the bike. Thank god for gear though, I heard my helmet pound multiple rocks.

Glad you're okay (you too, Toro). Make sure you replace that helmet.

You start the game with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.

Was on the last 30 min part of my ride, had a truck tire blow up in front of me. something hit my leg, after I got past everything I looked down at my knee (this is the stupid part) I took my eyes off the road, wind was 20-30MPH (one handing and looking down not smart) as I look up I was about 2 feet from the end of the highway (there was no turn mind you, wind just pushed me off the road). So I went into the middle grass between the highway at around 85MPH. It was a new high way so it was dirt/rocks at about a 45 degree slop going down about 5-10 feet making a V shape between the two highways. It happened in slow motion for me tho, I first wanted to grab the brakes but knew better from all my dirt bikes and what not that I would just eat **** also street bike and off road done mix. I knew I just had to ride it out, I worked my way some how down to the middle where the ditch was some how i made it over the run offs and everything. Just pulled the clutch in and went about 100 or so yards. Came to a stop, put it in first climbed up the hill like a dirt bike and went on my way. I stopped about a mile down the road to check myself. Skill and TONS of luck went into pay, experience does help but can only do so much. Needless to say I did count my blessings.

I didn't proof read so get over it. <3

Wow toro, sounds like yours would've been a lot worse. I think it's a giant heads up to both of us to ALWAYS pay attention. A split second of carelessness is too much, obviously.

I plan on spending some good money on my next helmet. It's crazy, I don't think anyone can understand how important helmets are until you've been in a crash. The impact and force is insane. People who ride without them are absolutely nuts.

Could have not said it any better myself haha, just got a little to comfortable. You should make a rebuild thread on you're bike so we can see how it goes if you are going to do so.

Yea.. COOL STORY BRAHHH

Glad both of your nuts.. made it alive :)

after this.. I am sure you will think twice and ride with more caution ...

happen to me once... I was riding in the highway going like 85-90 and while the road was curving... somehow I almost went off the road lol.. luckily I gave it more lean and curved back on the road .. this was a while back when I first started riding.....

nowadays I ride very cautious... especially when there are things around me...

Glad you're still with us bro.

Truck tire blowouts are a big problem down here, if only they put half their load onto the tracks (where it belongs) rather than on the roads, I'm sure we would have a lot less stories like this.

Glad you're fine ToroPop. Be more careful next time and glad you resisted that urge to reach for the brakes.


Ccdel237, glad you are OK dude. Now for the helmet search. Good Luck.

Not bad seeing all you needed was to wash the mud off the bike and a new pair of underpants.
