Rode a powerline hadn't ridden for a while, went over blind hill, forgot about huge hole, 2 broken fingers left hand, snapped scafoid in right wrist in half, surgery thursday, both arms in casts, left for 4 weeks, right for 6 or more after surgery. Can still eat, bathroom, dress though. To hard to type. Wish me luck!

Sorry to hear that

I took a spill myself this weekend nothing like yours just bad bruises and i'm sore as hell.I guess the reality of it is this is a big boys sport we are playing here and getting hurt always looms ahead.Wish you a speedy recovery.

Oh no, that's too bad. Where were you riding? Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Put moto stickers on your casts.

Man, I hate when that happens. Seems like there have been a lot of crash posts lately. I crashed last week (wrist MAY be broken, need to wait for swelling to go down), FC22 trashed her elbow. Wraith had the big one (wishing you the best, Wraith).

I hope you recovery well. 6 weeks isn't too bad. Just think of how clean your bike can be by then;) .

After my next ride I'm posting an "I didn't get hurt" post. At least I hope I am.

I was just out on some local power lines here in Port Townsend WA, forgot about hole on left 4x4 had dug, hit it hard, flew a good 20ft, slid another 30ft, remember thinking in the air this will hurt! Worst is just bought a 94 CBR600 F2 last monday, now can't play. :(

I am so sorry to hear that. I almost crashed sunday. I was looking at the team suzuki truck across the street getting gas as I went around a corner 20mph then I happened to hit a rock and that made my front wash out in the sand but I put my foot down and hit the gas hard and saved it some how. ( then rode close to the street and did a panic REV to get the suzuki truck's attention. Guess what it was Travis pastrana's Father! Travis wasn't with him. I'm fine but am a little like " I wish that almost crash never happened "
Good luck with a quick recovery rate.

good luck to you.

i had both arms in slings once. i broke my left arm and right side collarbone. it happened on a saturday and my surgery wasn't scheduled until the next tuesday. it was the longest three days of my life. there is nothing more humbling than having someone else wipe your...well, nevermind.:D

It seems like there have been a lot of crashes lately.:think

I hope for a speedy recovery. BTW, I'm glad to hear "bathroom" is OK. I know a guy that had to have his sister um...help him in the powder room for 6 months.:eek: because of two severly broken arms. I wonder how Fro managed when he was casted all up??

Ah yes the powder room. There was a thing on T.V yesterday I think about a football player who got paralyzed and has to have his brother dig it out because the player is unable to operate those system's.

This thread is going down fast....

I'm willing to accept the risk of broken bones, bruises, even knee surgery, but the thought of needing help with bodily functions could cause me to sell my bike:( .

Yes I'm glad bathroom is ok. :cool: Have to go in for pre-surgery today for blood drawn. Then real thing Thursday, I'm sort of nervous. :eek: I think I may be able to drive an automatic in a few weeks but don't own one. Not fun not being able to do anything other then watch TV! I was going to ride CBR600 F2 to Washougal, maybe someone will drive of my friends? I'm finding out who my real friends are though. I'll update ya after surgery.

Hey man sorry to hear about the crash! I know the feeling, I just ragged it pretty hard on Sunday at the track myself.
Came over the 95ft table and my back end got way high! When i landed my head smashed the bars. Went unconcious for a few minutes. The paramedics thought i might have been paralized because i couldnt move or feel ANYTHING at the time. I got the lovely helicopter ride to the hospital to find out that i have a serious concusion, 3 broken ribs, a broken collarbone and a screwed up knee. Lucky none of it need surgery but it still sucks! I was supposed to race in 2 weeks but not anymore. The only advantage to this is that my parents are making me sell my 97 yz125 and buy a brand new bike. I'd like an 02 yz125 but i cant wait long enough for them to come out!!!
