wear your gear

Post  mamacone on Sun Jun 17, 2012 9:00 am

Hopped on the 950 the other evening just to warm it up and run some fuel through it. It had been sitting for several weeks. Of course all I have on are shorts and sandals. Still not sure what happened and ended up going down at 35 mph or so. Good thing I had a full faced helmet on. Left side of body is road rash from toes to fingers with the exception of where my shorts and t shirt covered. Had I had my boots and gear on probably would have walked away with a few bruises and scrapes. Spent 3 hours in the ER and have missed 4 days of work so far.

Tough lesson to learn, I often see riders with little gear on specially in warm weather. I simply don't ride if it's too hot, same with the ZX12R always wear full gear or I don't ride.
Hope you mend soon and the bikes fixable

Dude, sorry about your mishap.....hope you heal up well and soon. I have a habit of jumping on my bike for the same reason, just to go around the block a few times to get the oil and gas moving. Same deal with me, just a helmet and no other gear. Wont be doing that any more!
