went down





#1
I have been riding since I was 12 and for the first time I went down last-night. I was making a turn at low speed and I got into some gravel and the bike got out from underneath me. I had been trying to get the most of my rear tire and it is kind of slick and that was an important factor in me hitting the ground. I always wear helmet and gloves and normally a jacket but its hot as hell in Houston this time of year so I chose my icon field armour and that saved my back and my right arm and left hand wasn't so lucky I screwed my hand up im in so much pain in hand and my arm has road rash not that bad but enough where I'm uncomfortable I will post pics later. The bike got some light damage on the right side nothing that can't be fixed but I'm going to get the new tire and summer jacket today screw that I learned my lesson. Im blessed thats all that happen could've been worst. The big guy(GOD) was watching out for me and took care of me.

Taking a spill sucks! Good to hear that you're not too banged up.

Check out the CORTECH GX Air Series 2 Leather Motorcycle Jacket, it's a 3-in-1.

Great to hear of people that've been riding for ages and never had a major accident. Its just goes out to show that biking can be safe with the proper gear and discipline. Sorry to hear of your going down. Get well soon
