Probably one of the few "halls of fame" that normal people would gladly pass up entrance into.

I've actually met her before. Really nice woman. She was working at one of the local bike shops. I think she moved to Florida.

I don't feel snubbed on that one at all. I'm glad I learned from other people's mistakes.

The guy in the first picture WAS wearing gear. He crashed in deep sand.

It's gravity

So that makes you invincible? I wore gear too. Still had a third degree the size of a football on my tush after being pushed in front of a car. The pants held up, so I guess technically it was a burn and not road rash.

I know how bad it is for you 'mericans to see a naked tush, so I've spared you the picture. ;-)

I suppose your own weight/BF % really plays out in a crash. , If you weigh a lot then that mass has a bigger impact on your impact.

Whatever the deal was in that woman's case I think it's one of the strongest arguments fort ATGATT that I've ever seen.

Some road rash pics

This isn't me. I'm not that young and attractive. Or that damned stupid.


And since it isn't you or someone you know, it no longer is allowed in face plant.
