^^^ thats a tripple like!!!!
Just incase you are feeling sorry for me in a little city up in Siberia you shouldn't after today.
I met these girls a couple days ago in a cafe on my long 925k day and one came over to visit me in my room today.
I have a smile like the cat who just ate the canary haha.
She said I deserved it... lol I agreed
that should make up for the Mad Hotel Woman
And then some.
So I get dumb arse of the month award.
I was turning my Giant loop bushwacker hand guard into a skid plate. Figured it would at least stop rocks hitting the motor and I sliced my finger with my leatherman.
Bad enough to need it stitched.
I went straight into where I was staying and they called a ambulance when they saw the blood.
On the brightside your first visit to a hospital in Russia is free.
I don't have much choice but to take off tomorrow anyway but it fucking hurts and I'm basically down to one hand which is luckily my throttle hand.
I'm just going to have to grin and bear it but what was already going to be a bit of a mission now has turned into... who knows what but shit this is when I miss my weed.
Holy shit, be careful mate!
Heal fast, Aaron. I did a similar thing years ago trimming a plastic bumper. Shit happens!
Sorry to hear about the stitches mate. Find a 5 gallon bucket and cut a skidplate from it (or have someone else cut it, you seem to be dangerous with a knife) and mount it with zip ties or wire. We did this on our motorcross bikes all the time. Never spent money on metal skidplates. Be safe and hope you hand becomes useful quickly.
I went to put my shoe on a few hours later and blood started pouring out of the bandage.
Back to the hospital and more stitches. No bloody anesthetic this time either. Different guy.
I'm going to stay one more day to make sure it's not going to pull them again and my new friend said she would come visit me so there's an incentive to stay a day.
Also part of the road outside of Magadan washed away and I heard it's a few days to repair.
That sucks. I do something similar about twice a year...by-product of an active life. See if you can snag some rubber gloves and cut the fingers off for digital condoms. Keeps the bandages clean and the blood off your gloves
Enjoy the time with your nurse ;-)
It's looking better this morning.
if that's better, then that's the definition of relatively
My friend came to visit today. Helped me forget about my finger for a little while and I hear the road is still bad and closed towards Magadan. Might give the finger one more day to heal. I'm getting a little itchy feet though as I've never stayed in one place for so long when on the road.
Ha ha, I can see why you might need a bit of R+R to recover from your cut finger!
Fill your boots I reckon Aaron, as the memory of your stay there will help with the many miles and lonely nights ahead of you
Make sure you do everything you can to keep your little laceration clean on the road. An infection will definitely ruin your day!
That is one hell of a smile on your face. She definitely made something to take you plain away for a while. Have fun, Take care of the cut finger. Maybe make sure you have some antibiotics with you. You do want an infection on your next long ride.
That's f*cking outstanding @Aaron.S! Nothing like a nice distraction to take your mind off the crap weather, riding, shitty hotel people, and the rest. Damn man, good on you. I bet that's the best type of R&R after so many miles in the saddle.
Crap man, nothing like going from a nice feminine company to a Russian hospital - talk about polar opposites. At least she came to visit and has decided to keep your mind occupied with other activities
Like others have said, keep that damn thing clean.
Hope you're able to get some R&R and it's not a huge hindrance as you get underway again.
Safe travels amigo.
What a thread, it's taken me a week to catch up but man it gets me amped to get out there.
Thanks for making the effort to do a ride report and share your trip with us, Aaron.
Looks like I'll have to start saving for a KTM 500 now......
Just keep that finger clean!
Your hubba hubby tent has done you well.
