I went down hard Sunday
So I was gonna upgrade to a liter bike after putting a bit over 6K miles on my R6, but me and my friend have decided I need to rip up another 600 first. We had a nice day here in texas, first time in a long time, so i went ridding with my friend (he's on a 1000rr) and some of his buddies. I remember a bit, but not much. We met up at our usual spot and once we had a small group went ridding. I was behind a guy on a 600rr, but I was all over his butt so I passed, good thing too. When we got up to the TX-OK border in Denision, I lowsided goin 65 into a grass field in a left curve and either hit a metal pole or landed damn close to it. The guy on the 600rr saw me stopped and called 911. I dont remember anything, I apparently hit my chin to the ground just after my legs so I was OUT! According to my friend, I was awake when the paramedics arrived and the first words outta my mouth to the medics were "DONT PUT A CATHIDER IN!" and "HOW'S MY BIKE?!?" I was in ICU for a day and a half, then I had my own room through Tue. and got out that evening. I have a knee the size of a cantaloupe, separated shoulder, had a briused lung, and a concussion. If I want to lie down and turn my head i have to manually do it with my one good arm, and i can only sleep on my back. The Dr. asked if I was getting another bike and I said hell yeah.
Bike is now a rolling chasis (straight forks, main, and swing and clean title), and we pulled the engine a few days ago. I have full health so Ill take what's left from the first wreck, PIP (if i get it), and the remenints of my R6 to go get a 05/06 600rr.
Wear your gear!
