Maybe he hit his head. Hope the head and knee get better quickly.

He either writes very poorly or is purposely being obtuse.

Hope that the injury produces no lasting damage - have you lifted the bike off of you yet ?

All you would have to is be clear.

So now there's a car involved. OK. Amazing how he keeps changing his story.

By the horned one's spiky tail, I'm german and even I perfectly understood what he was saying.
Although, trying to mimic his mishap, I looked quite stupid and nearly killed myself.

No need to be so rude to someone doing something really, really stupid - but at least realizing it.

Normally, he lifts himself with the help of the bars and jumps of the bike in one movement, swinging the right leg over everything.

Now, having only one hand free, he only pressed on one side of the handlebar, thus, the handlebar swung around (you know...just like when you steer at low speed) and fixed his left knee between handlebar and tank.

So, he was not hit.
His bike did not tip...not necessarily, at least.
He simply fell of the bike when trying to get of.
And the momentum dislocated his knee cap (it sheered it of), which is the same pain as he has had years before.

And in the fall he appears to have sheered of the mirror also.

So.
It is unspeakably stupid and totally embarrasing.
Hence, why don't you laugh slightly less loud?


....and now, finishing this post, I go laughing a lot in some quiet corner :-D

I'm really sorry for the dude and the ESL guy, but who was screaming at him?

In Soviet Russia, knee to blow out bike, not the other way.

NOW it makes sense. So, OP, you're leg was pinned between the tank and the handlebar with the rest of you just sort of... hanging from it? I have the most embarrassing mental picture right now....

No you guys have it all wrong

I thought his phone caught fire because he had a top case on the bike. Fortunately he had blown out his knee in the past and the breeze from that event happened to pass by at that exact moment putting out the fire but knocking the phone from his hand. In the confusion he tried to do a handstand on the bars but someone screamed which startled him. Forgetting he was in a handstand he tried to give the screamer the ADV salute with his right hand which caused the bike to twist and he fell on his knee causing it to again blow out and this time blowing the phone through the spokes and breaking it into pieces.

Really, the exact same thing happened to me once. What are the odds.

Seriously though, glad the OP didn't get more beat up than he did. Darned motorcycles are dangerous even when they're sitting still...

Maybe he is still dangling & sent that MSG from the cell phone. He may need rescue.
