Bit wierd and may scare a few folk, but, lets compare crashes and damage. Bit like jaws when their all pissed on the boat comparing shark-bite wounds.
1988, hit a barb-wire fence on my cr125 after the float jammed in the throttle chamber on a bad corner and couldnt slow down. Broke two toes, one finger and had lots of scars (as you can imagine) all over my body. The scariest one being about 1 inch from my ball sack! Bike fucked
1989 Riding my KMX125 home from the chippy with two kebabs in my jacket and had a boy racer in a ford cortina in front of me. In one moment he was ahead and then he decided to pull into a culdesac and that was that as far as i was concerned. Little did i know, he did a hand brake turn in the junction and came flying back out. I had three split second choices;
1: Hit the car
2: go round the front and hit a house
3 go round the back and hit a garage
I decided on the first choice and braked as hard as possible, but, on hitting the car I went over the handle-bars and the bars whiplashed my anlkes breaking them both. The bike was basically snapped in three places on the frame. 6 months minimum recover.
1999. Leaving home for work on my ZXR400 and only got 100m from my house when a seemingly blind women (always ride with headlights on) pulled out on me and knocked me off the bike at low speed (20MPH). On hitting the floor, my right hand bent back so far that it dislocated two metatarcels in it and finally broke the others, my left hand hit the tarmac in a punch position basically shattering most of the bones in my hand and my fingers. Bike fairings fucked and basically wrote off.
I know these are not going to be the worst crashes that will be on here and I have had a couple of other that arent worth mentioning. Just interested in sharing experiences and maybe others will learn from our mistakes.
PS. My first crosser was a CR80 big wheeler, in which on the first time I set off (as a fool with no helmet) I flipped it and knocked myself out. Bike ok ego fucked
Looking forward to your responces
