Besides if you think your head is getting a little big just go out to Willow Springs and the boys will fix that ego real quick showing you just how slow you really are LOL
Thank God you had good knowledgeable cool-headed friends. I ride alone and if something happens I am fucked. So I ride accordingly. All the same most of the dorks I usually rode with probably would have killed me trying to help (yes I have seen their "help" first-hand) so I figure I am probably better off alone.:helmet:I was the victim about 3 months ago, thank the good lord I am here and back riding again (thanks also to my gear I.E. good helmet and Kawi Racing Leathers) I lost it in a turn on a super twisty country road ended up in a ditch at about 40mph or so went off the bike landed HARD on left shoulder head smacked the dirt. My first reaction was MY BIKE!! I popped up and went over and started to pick my bike up. A buddy that was able to get stopped safely ran up and grabbed me and the bike and said "Hang on she's ok lets check you out" I honestly had no idea my head even hit the ground not cause I was knocked loopy but because I had a good helmet on, I never even had a mild headache after but I had some good dirt rash on the helmet. Once my buddy got me to sit down more people started showing up I was riding with around 12 people. Someone had already called 911, my buddy was checking me over. I was coherent knew what just happened and was honestly more worried about my bike. He told me it was ok and I would be fine to that the paramedics were coming. Shortly there after I was up walking around, a buddy helped me out of my jacket and we both noticed that my left collar bone was about to come through the skin but other than that I was acting/looking fine. Shortly after the ambulance arrived and they checked me out said I was fine and now I have a titanium plate 4 screws and 8 pins in my shoulder area. But thanks to the quick thinking of friends and the fact that I ride with my gear I am good to go and back enjoying my 10R.
Coming out of the car pool lane? People do that quite often. Anytime you are next to the fast lane or car pool lane, gotta be super-alert. Don't hang there. I ride tons of freeway, rarely have incursions now due to a few things I started practicing.Outstanding comments from all on this thread. My 0.02 cents. Some lady crossed over solid double yellow lines on the freeway without looking and struck a brother motorcyclist. A nurse stopped to help and determined that he needed CPR. I took over compressions and felt the ribs cracking. Took me by surprise! The brother was pronounced at the hospital. The cracking if the ribs kind if freaked me out until a friend who had been a paramedic told me that rib cracking happens quite often. Don't freak out if you feel this crack. You need to keep supplying the heart with fresh blood. Hopefully you'll never have to do it. Be safe brothers and sisters.
