chrinupp went down today

Hey all, just got back from the ER so I don't have pics of my bike yet, but i will. I was up in the mountains, nice sunny day, all seems good. Was going into a left turn, i dont know if I hit the breaks or not, because I honestly blacked out and just remember having to push my bike off from on top of me.

Diagnosis: Broken Ankle, road rash on arm and leg, possible damage to left ACL, but not sure.

All I gotta say is I'm thankful to the inventors of safety gear, without them, today could have been a lot worse.

It's way more fun to be sweating than bleeding.

Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you

gear rocks! glad you're still around to talk about it. bikes and gear can be replaced but people cannot.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!
