i'm with you Julie, that's why i ride a nomad !Do you think that dude with all the road rash will wear some gear next time? Why on earth would anyone try stunts like that without wearing any gear at all? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
I was already a mother when I was 20 (married at age 17, believe it or not) and had a second child at age 23. When I was in my early 20s, I was too busy raising kids and taking care of a house to be pulling crazy stunts like that. I was dumb, but in a different way. (Getting married at age 17--need I say more?)

That's certainly true. That guy didn't look like he had any broken bones, though--just lots of road rash. If he'd had on some good gloves and a jacket and pants with armor (not to mention a helmet!), he might have spared himself some of that. That road rash hurts a lot worse after it starts scabbing up, too. My stepdaughter was in an accident a few years ago. She was riding in the back of a pickup truck (yeah--dumb, dumb, dumb, and she knew better). The driver pulled in front of an oncoming car, which the back the corner of the bed where my stepdaughter was sitting. She not only got badly hurt by the collision, she also got thrown about 40 feet and tumbled along the pavement. She had a ton of road rash, which bothered her a lot more a few days later than it did right after the accident. I know she won't ever ride in the back of a truck again, and I hope that dumb kid with the road rash gets himself some good gear and stops trying to be a show-off.Sgt Mike said:Why would anybody do that even with leather on? Bones can break. .
