    Re: Not my shame. but I'll share

    A bike cop round here has died recently in that exact situation. Obviously the major difference being we drive on the left, so going wide on a left hander put him in to oncoming traffic.

    The lad is young. The things I reported to sick bay with after summer leave when I was his age, would probably have me bed ridden for a week now. He'll be fine in a day or two. Take one token out of his "luck bag" and put two in his "experience bag".

    The gal at the general store, we were at waiting to be picked up, offered me a shot of Fireball. If it wasn't 11am, I might have taken her up on it. lol I thought I need to keep my wits about me too so I can be of any help to my son.

    Thanks everyone for the words of support

    We've lost riders around here for the same reasons as your cop. I blew this corner the first time I rode it going the opposite direction, I was just lucky there was no oncoming traffic. I learned that day to respect 15mph corners. I have better skill on the bike now, but I still slow way down for slow marked corners. It's not a race so why risk it. Our son got the "over confident" "riding about your skill level" lecture today. He was ready to hear it. He agrees he was.

    I agree with you, if this was me I'd be in bed for a week or two. Youth is wasted on the young. He'll be fine in a few days.

    I wonder who that is.....

    After I took this pic, I took off his leather pants so I could ice his knees. He was embarassed to be laying on the side of road in his underroos, so I laid his pants over his midsection. lol

    Re: Not my shame. but I'll share

    Oh boy. A tough lesson was learned. Glad he is on the mend. As a parent of 2 "adult" boys I can appreciate the feelings you must have had. I barely remember the time I was immortal. As a parent I believe that the biggest frustration is trying to impart all the wisdom I paid dearly for to my kids. I'm sure cave man had the same problems with cave kid, telling them not to play with the big green lizard!

    Re: Not my shame. but I'll share

    Glad to hear he is okay, ATGATT is good.
    When I go for rides with buddies, I use my A* full track suit and SMX-boots.
    Others come in jeans and mesh jackets or riding pants and mesh jackets.
    When you go under the bike and the sharp swing arm and a piece of center stand fall on your foot till ankle, the race boots are the ones which helps protect your legs.
    Whatever you paid for the suit will be paid off..!

    Hope he doesn't lose his confidence and will be back on two wheels very soon.

    Re: Not my shame. but I'll share

    Monica, sorry to hear about your son's off. Wearing full gear is to minimize injuries, and that's exactly what the gear did. I think he's lucky that there wasn't a guardrail around that corner, more harm comes to hitting one than the crash itself. Your son is still very young and strong, he will recover very quickly. Did you give him Quaaludes? He looks awful happy in that picture.

    He had on full height track boots so that helped prevent injuries to his feet, ankles for sure.

    He wants to ride today. No loss of confidence so far. It's almost the end of our season, so maybe next Spring...

    Hahahaha Nope, just Advil. He was in pretty good spirits. Kind of pissed me off really. I was bummed, I missed my ride and lunch at Bubba's Bagels in Grass Valley. But really I was relieved it wasn't worse. Part of me thinks it saved one of us from something worse. I don't know why. Just call it Mom's intuition.
