it happened tonite..after i was too early for bike nite and left i went for a ride with a buddy..I came around a corner at about 50 and hit a patch of gravel on the side of the road. I pretty much blacked out shortly after that so i dont remember too much. I dont think i hit my head too hard because the helmet appears to only have scratches. I have some rash by my knee on my right leg..some chunks were taken out of my leather boots. i had jeans, leather boots, leather jacket, full faced helmet and gloves on. I dont know what i slammed into on the side of the road but my shoulder pad helped a ton. i think? I ruined a bunch of shit in my shoulder, things are stretched and torn and one of the bones isnt looking so hot. I didnt need emergency surgery but i will be talking to a shoulder specialist tomorrow because they couldnt tell how bad it is, they said i may need to have my shoulder taken apart so they can put it back together with plates and pins. They said my shoulder, if i dont have to have surgery, will be not real usable for 3 or 4 months. I havent checked my bike out really..i know most the speedo section/ignition is gone, handle bars are screwed, fender etc etc. not that it matters anymore, i cant ride this season anyway. I'm alive. I'm a statistic. ride safe.
