I'll feel better when I quit hurtin'. . I'm severely hurtin', but not severely hurt. Nolan N102, Teknic jacket and gloves, Fieldshere Mercury pants and Tour Master boots. I believe they saved my life. Basing this on the assumption that even light abrasion markings on ballistic Cordura nylon removes skin. 75-80% of the coat and pants are abraded, right knee shredded to knee guard. Without the gear I would most likely have both knees broken and skin shredded, left elbow broken and shredded, my entire back and butt skinless, right front shoulder and arm skinless, both tighs. Somehow I got on top of my helmet. Scratches some deep some not from my right ear with the most wear right at the top air vent. No scratches on the lower part or back of the helmet. Either I went in head first, but not enough damage to helmet of neck for this theory. I think that maybe in the slide I did a head over heals flip with the helmet striking the road. I have a gash at the end of my left elbow, a 2" rash on my left kneecap. Right lung contusion and 7 broken right ribs (3 displaced) and a pulled pec muscle. Sundry others little sore spots have surface on day 3. Can't lay in a bed from chest pain and couldn't get up out of a bed if I got down. Sleepin in the recliner. Launched high side from the bike around 50-60mph and slid rolled tumbled 75-100' or so. Bike slid into a vehicle so I got a Following To Close Ticket. Sheriff told my wife they had to give me something since another vehicle was involved. Don't remember hitting the road, just the back in stepping out. Came to laying on my back, really hard to breath. I could hear cars driving by and wondering why no one had come over to me. Seemed like a long time. My left palm was hurting and I took off my glove. When I move my hand a guy came over and asked if I was OK. I wonder if they though I was dead and didn't want to look. Cars were stopped on the road for me to slide by, Without my gear I don't believe a 60 year old man could survive had that damage been to my body and not the gear. Guys, Do-rags, beanie helmets and chaps really aren't protection.
