Unhappy FUCK! laid it down good!, chipped knee and a bruised ego! - September 17, 2009, 12:46 AM

So trying to get off campus (GMU), around 930, before the rain. As usual, warmed-up the engine, merged into the inner campus road, making a left turn on the same road i have been riding for the past 4 months.

Next thing, I am sliding down the road, watching the bike make a 180 on the side, hitting the footpath at around 10mph.

The dude passing by stopped to help me up. Jeans torn at the left knee, left ankle hurting, left handle bar bent (came off clean, when pulling into the drive way), clutch fucked up, gear box acting funny, little bruised ego (like this was my road, shit shouldn't happen).

Then I saw the GRAVEL. FUCK! A combination of speed and gravel did the job for the old tires (got ~9k on em).

Some how managed fire it up, and shift the gear with out engaging the clutch (YEAH< WTF, afraid the gear box is messed up). Between stalling at lights, and the rpm randomly shooting up, like the clutch was engaged, I managed to get home.

Leather jacket, gloves, jeans (I usually ride in shorts) and some converse. Could have been worse, the gear made the difference. (Never going out without a jacket and jeans)

The pain didn't kicked in yet!

Was gonna install the frame sliders this weekend. KARMA is a bitch!

worst part, it hasn't rained yet!

UPDATE: Luckily it wasn't chipped knee, only road rash! hooh....

damn, that case cover looks like it took quite a slide, glad you are okay for the most part, I just graduated from Mason, used to ride almost everyday that I could (blue 04 R6), get 'er fixed up and keep on going, easy on that throttle, watch out for all the construction shit on the roads as well (gravel, tar, rocks, debris, etc, etc)

Heal up. Do you live near GMU? I'm always around that area let me know if you need someone to stop by and look at the bike.

He will fix it for free..... !

Heal up bro... And be careful.. (would not hurt to invest in some boots too) Some of us learn the hard way.. Trust me.. I know..


Everytime I get on my bike I tell myself, "I'm going to chill, go the speed limit" How long do you think that lasts for? Exactly!
Blame it on my short term memory!!

Jeans aren't really any better than shorts. The asphalt will tear them open instantly as your knee has learned.
Get either some reinforced kevlar jeans or perf leather riding pants.
Glad you weren't hurt worse!

You basically just described exactly the way i laid my bike about a two months ago.. taking the curb and (GRAVEL) worst thing was i was with a T-shirt and short.. On my way to get a JACKET how much of a bitch is that? But i was able to get up an walk away also... bike mess up, asphalt burns on my legs and shoulders. But like the guys up there say.. " YOU LIVE AND YOU LEARN " Im glad your ok, chin up and take it easy as you start riding again... And if any one knows of some kinda knee protectors that can go under Jeans please advise!!! I'm sure everyone here has ridden with Jeans/shorts sometime in their life's...
