    Wiggling fingers and toes, checking for serious injuries.

    Luckily, this was the worst of it.

    My boots and knee/shin guards were essential to walking away from this crash.

    I'm sore today, but that's way better than a broken anything!

    :thumb took a dirt bike noob out for a slow introductory ride. he shows up in work boots and no knee guards and i said are you sure you want to ride like that, leg injuries are pretty common... he dropped it thirty seconds into the ride and the footpeg scraped right down his shin bone. only missing skin thankfully, but i always tell noobs to buy their gear now before any first ride.

    Nice crash Vid, NS! That gave me nightmares of my crash. I even rode it right into the ground as you did. So glad you are OK!!! There have been enough of us breaking bones lately.

    My friends think I'm stoopid wearing a jacket in 110 degree weather. I don't mind spilling the bike, but I do mind popping rocks out my skin (we call them "sand pimples") and washing sand out my cuts. Good way to avoid tetanus!:D

    Takes a brave man to post a video of himself crashing. I think most of try to pick the bike up as fast as possible (if not hurt) and pretend it didn't happen.....................then catch up with their buds.

    You didn't look like you were a crash victim when I saw you this morning @ C4. Thanks for all video work and posts, I've really enjoyed all of them. :clap
