On Tuesday night I was stupid and went into a turn too hot. I think I passed over a manhole cover and started to lowside. The tire eventually caught and kicked me clear over the bike in a wicked highside. I remember passing over the nose of the bike and then just tumbling--endless tumbling. I also heard the stomach-wrenching sound of plastics dragging on asphalt.

When the tumbling finally stopped, I got up and walked off the road. I tried to use my left hand to help my helmet off. I couldn't move my wrist. I looked down and found my wrist bent like a tetris piece. By this time neighbors had stepped out to help me, call 911, and make sure I was ok.

My left wrist was pretty badly damaged and needed surgery Wednesday night. I've now got a plate and four screws in my wrist. My left shoulder is rashed where the shoulder ripped. My gloves and jacket (Joe Rocket Phoenix) did their jobs, but they're trashed (the jacket left shoulder looks like it exploded). My Arai has a huge gash starting from the left of the chin to the left ear. And my bike needs a face lift on the right side--fairing, signals, rearset--all hashed after dragging for about 50 feet.

I'm alive, thank God. I learned a good lesson. I'll be learning it for the next six weeks. It ws such a stupid and unecessary accident. :bitchslap:

Anyway, I hope I recover quickly...Gotta fix my bike and get back on the saddle.

Glad you are okay, wrist injuries are the worst; I broke my wrist snowboarding 6 years ago adn it still hurts when I ride. I got three screws in mine.

Be safe buddy, see you on the road soon.

Rippey

BTW, get Codine 30%, atrofy (did I spell that right?) is the absolute WORST pain ever.

Good to see your gear did its job. Without it, it would have been much, much worse. Let us know what you need. I've got some stock parts including rear signals I'd be happy to send your way. Ride safe and smile.

Glad you are OK. Metal and rubber don't really mix (especially when wet). I also learned the hard way too, but luckily it was on my scooter instead of the 600RR. Ride safe.
