thanks you to all,
when i first started out my season i swore that i would wear as much of my gear as possible.
as time pressed on,i found myself running around without it.
one post of post pics of road rash was a quick wake-up to me.
although i may not gear up as much as i should,i find myself making sure i wear as much as possible when riding.
just to give a little back story, i rarely ever wore any gear.
first accident-cb750,driver uses right hand turn signal and turn's left in front of me. no helmet i hit her driver's side door and go flying over the car to land and skid 10 or more feet,come to a stop bumping my head against the curb.
that one cost me a hernia surgery.
next incident-gpz1100. in my lane going under murray baker bridge,fairly curvy.
i stay in my lane,straight truck moves over to right lane and i advance.
car in right lane decides to turn and truck driver come's sliding over to my side forcing me(hard on the brakes)into the median.
bike hit's pea gravel at median and i find myself lying in oncoming traffic(none coming,thank him)while driver continue's on as if nothing happened.
again no helmet!!! am i dull minded or what???
rode the bike to work and showed the boss my road rash and he wouldn't even give me the day off...
and again after many year's of absence of riding i found myself running around like a street demon(daemon)trying to be impressive.
so all in all i just want to say that you guy's may some day save my body or mind.
so just to sum up,thank you.
please don't send pics!! the first one's were bad enough.
now if only i could convince my cuz(typical harley rider)to at least wear some gear!! he's really not that cool..
i'm done, i think!!!?
