    Ouch!

    Hope it came out okay and no long term effects. Do you think a visor would have stopped that?

    Way to stick with it fastgixx...
    I like your presence of mind to shut the bike off.
    What a surreal trip that must have been driving to the ER... :lol3
    Glad it wan't much worse.
    I took a stick between the helmet liner and my right temple as a kid. Never saw it until my head was being wrenched sideways and then snap.

    "Sir, I must commend you for ensuring this was captured on camera in its entirety. You are a champion."

    Glad it turned out ok.
