Ouch!

I just went down. Big rash on arm. Gear saved me. Will post pictures later.



Sent from my left shoe using the Motorcycle app



Update:

I was riding the Strom, going 45 on a busy 3-lanes-per-direction street. I was just crossing an intersection riding on the left lane when the idiot driving on the center lane decided to cut me off... on an intersection!. I used my front brake and swerved to avoid the ******* but my knoby front tire didn't hold well enough so I lost it. I slided for maybe 20 or 30 feet but the bike did travel quite a bit on its left side (see the mark on the pic).




I was wearing full textile ADV-type gear but my left sleeve was loose enough that it slipped up my arm and I got a pretty nasty rash on it.



























All traffic stopped, I got back up, checked for broken bones, got up on the bike and rode 30 miles back home.

Re: Ouch!

That'll buff right out.

-Glad you and the bike are ok. That rash looks like it will hurt for awhile. How is the wife dealing with the crash?

Re: Ouch!

WOW. Hope you heal up quickly. Looks like the strom did okay, minus the luggage.

Re: Ouch!

Did the driver that cut you off stop? Would have been nice to have a word with him.

Sucks man, those scrapes look nasty, next couple days are going to suck. Good thing you had full gear on, could have been much worse. Sorry to see the damage on the Strom too. We know how much time you put in to that baby. Sure it seems to be all cosmetic, but it sucks that much more when you have the emotional attachment to it as well.

Glad you are alright and it is nothing life changing. Stay safe my friend.
