Mondo is right!!! Anyone know the extent of injuries? It looks like he's gonna need a few pins in his wrist on the very last roll he took. It looks like it might have gotten tucked back the wrong way. But what about broken legs or anything? Does anyone know?

DAMN, that was some serious air and distance. At least he didn't land square on his legs.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

At least that's what I was thinking when I highsided.
I still can't believe you came out of that high-side unscathed. Any idea how much air you got on that one?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Maybe a foot or two above the bike. I know I was completely upside-down because I remember looking at the front of my bike while inverted.

When I launched myself off the bike, the last thought in my head was lets get this over with quick. Then once you hit the ground.. you're getting tossed like a limp doll thinking when in the fuck am I going to stop? First thought after you come to a stop is.. I quit.. I can't do this shit no more. 30 minutes later and you're dying to get back out there. Crashes are funny that way.

EXACTLY. The bike had no problem throwin my fat ass over the top. I make a better road block than a bird so I landed hard. Fortunatley it hurt more later than immediatley. Still had to pick up the bike and ride her in. Funny how you seem to get stronger after a toss.

That was Shakey Byrne right... if I remember correctly he dislocated his wrist after catching air like that and missed Brno but coulda been worse for him

If you find yourself in this situation, with the rear tire sliding, How do you recover without pulling a high-side?

Ride Safe.
