KX500AF ride after trauma ward visit!
« on: September 29, 2017, 02:48:55 PM »
Got banged up pretty good last January! Six broken ribs in three different locations. Punctured collapsed lung and putting pressure on my heart. Partially separated shoulder. Back at it again but have decided to take it down a notch. Mangled myself this last time on my 2011 KTM450SX-F. Broke four ribs and a collapsed punctured lung back in 2012 on my RMZ450. Latest injury was on my left and the one before on my right. Matching set now! Lol! KX500AF has only knocked me unconscious.

500cc bikes are much safer ;)

Well, did it again! Broken ribs on my right side just over a month ago while riding one of my KTM's. No punctured collapsed lung this time so I healed up a little quicker. Back on the 500AF again. All the 500AF has ever done to me is knock me unconscious and twisted up my right knee! Lol!

I had my CR500 years and years ago land on my shoulder busting my collar bone. That was a fun drive home from the desert!  Now days I just race with a bunch of old guys at Glen Helen on a pretty safe track. 

Keep safe, ride with a partner!

It's a rare event when I ride solo these days. If I do I wont venture more than a mile or two from the staging area in a high traffic area in the hopes that someone will be by to help pick up the pieces.
