Sooo sundays ride went tits up and I have been at a hospital since.
(The last photo of the daytona that I currently have)
The extent of my injuries are:
fractured T1 to T9
Internal brain bleeding
fractured shoulder blades.
All in all. The fact that I bounced off a guardrail pole at speed shows the importance of good gear.
In this case, im going to hand it to my lid and my jacket. While a lid is better then no lid, the SNELL rated bell race star i had on certianly did its job protecting my noggin.
The second bit of gear that I credit my life to is the aigbag jacket I was wearing. That 2cm layer of pressurized CO2 that grabbed me once I went down lessed my bounce off the ground and 100% kept me from splitting my spine in 2 on the post.
Now, to make this clear, im not paid or endorsed by these two companies whatsoever. I am simply bored, and kept awake by a hospital roommate that snores like a mack truck on a jake brake.
WILL I BE BACK ON A BIKE?
dam fucking straight I will. Insurance and cost of replacing my daytona will be major factors. But I will ride again.
Ama I guess.
