    I was riding my dirtbike...

    It is all going grand

    I start to head home.

    I come to a turn, I turn, I am going to fast, I tip over.

    My left ankle twists...

    My right leg falls onto the pipe and gets burned.

    Now I am off to the hospital for a possible sprained ankle, and possible 2nd degree burns.

    w00tage to the tenth power.


    I was wearing vans, a t shirt, and dickies shorts. I am so smart...

    As long as you didn't mess up your bass playing hands or shear your ears off, you should be ok.

    Hope all is well.

    Glad to hear you are okay!

    One of my best friends had a bad accident racing his go-kart this last Saturday. Jumped someone elses wheel, which turned him head on into the guard rail. He took a serious flip, which ejected him from the kart. After being transported to the hospital VIA ambulane, he was diagnosed with his c6 and c7 vertebrea broken (his neck). They then airlifted him to a hospital in Toledo, which is better equipped to treat such injuries. Luckily, he is home now, and has no nerve damage. I guess a couple of people got this on tape, we may send it into real tv!!!

    Official Report:

    2nd degree burns on my calf

    Sprained left ankle

    How I fell:

    I was riding on farm roads by my house, I was going down one of the roads that dead ends into a field of something... I figure I can make the turn, so I slow down to about 3rd gear speed, and try the turn.

    I have no clue if my tire got stuck in a rut when I turned the bars, or if I was just going to fast for the turn...

    All I remember is getting up, thinking my ankle is broken, then looking at my leg and just thinking it was skinned real bad. (The pipe actually burned some of the skin off :D )

    Then I think "Is meh bike OK? I do not want to walk home."

    Bike was fine... thank god... hrm, maybe I should clean my wounds... after I clean the bike a little.

    I go inside, get bandaged up, my step-mom sees the burns, gets my dad, we go to the hospital... we get there like at 7:30 and do not leave till 12:20ish.... 5 hours for them to tell me to keep gauze on my melted skin with some cream under the gauze.

    5 hours... damn them... :p

    EDIT: I hate it when I do not fall after jumping 9 times on a messed up jump, but then a little turn gets me.

    Should have been wearing pants and boots, but they were at the mother's

    Moral of the story: Slow down a little bit, or don't get stuck in ruts.
  14. ROFL!

    owned! haha thats great!

    Hope you get ridin' soon, Mike.

    I know all about dumbass falls. I landed a 540 off a 7-set, and just after i landed, fell on my face from my wheels catching on a tiny stone! doh!

    Well.. I tried to do it again. Wasnt pirtty. AT ALL!! Ended up in hospital for around 5 1/2 hours. i think it was 7-10 x-rays.

    I thought you were showing us the lyrics to a song you were writing.

    I'm totally serious.

    I guess I'm the dum-dum.

    Speaking of stupid accidents on bikes.... and funny stickers.....

    Took out a 3 strand barbed wire fence once on my dirtbike... yeah, that was a messy one. got the scars to remind me forever. I won't get into details.

    Buddy of mine has a sticker on his ATV in the shape of a band-aid that reads simply: STUPID HURTS. (Honda)

    And that OWNED pic of the cat in a cup is the best, by far.

    With any luck, at school tommorow all the girls will see my leg covered in gauze and I will get to tell a story of how I had to go to the war torn west bank and save little jewish and palestinian children from a battle that would happen in their area...
    and when I was taking the last kid across, I tripped over a rock, and my leg landed on a dead mans .50 cal machine gun which was still hot... but i still saved the child of course
