Iguess I have to blame the bike- It was my first time riding my new 250f and the dam thing felt so good I decided to try doubling thru a rhythym section. last jump out the front end dove and the tire got hung up in a rut. Funny thing is my thought as I went over the bars was my knee and how happy I was that I was wearing Asterisks. As soon as I burrowed into the ghround head and shoulder first I knew it was broken. drove home and had my wife haul me to the ER where the nurse rememberred us from our last 2 visits.
Unfortunately I think I am quitting my attempts to ride :( as the last 2 rides have been a blown knee and now a broken collarbone. I guess I am going to be a fulltime minidad/wrencher for thekid.
He is officially taking over the 250f and will be racing it this weekend for the first time Sunday.
Dave go for the three strikes and you're out method... you got one more to go. Hope you're healed up soon...
I'm with Gomer - what were you thinking! But I know your pain... the bike makes me think I'm superwoman until I get carted off the track. Tell Eric to be damn careful on that thing this weekend (and wish him luck and tell him to kick butt, too)!
Sounds like you might have been a victim of the 1st ride 4-stroke nose dive. I kept chopping the throttle off this one table on my first ride and after landing about 5 serious polish wheelies Red stopped me and told me you can't do that on the thumpers.
Get well soon, olddude - no quitting... yet. We'll get you on a bike at DW... even if it's a TTR!
