*above while wearing no helmet*

day2:
- fell off big wallride transfer and:
1. bruised the hell out of my ribs
2. dislocated my shoulder(2nd time this year)
3. small cut on my head from sprocket
- burst my tube

Back in the day (when I didn't know jack about bikes)I poped 6 tubes in 1 day. I was to stupid to realize that there must be some sort of problem, like my rim bending/getting such a huge flat spot that my spokes/nipples almost instantly punctured my tube when it was inflated. Lesson learned I guess.
