Went down hard again today right onto my right shoulder, now it literally feels like something is torn.
.........and why aren't you at the doctor?
Kona. You gotta chill. Take it easy dude. Hope all is okay. Keep us posted.
Could this be last nights ale fault?
Were you jumping, or what?
...And I thought I was always on the "injured" list.
Hope you wore protection on that date!
its okay, i overshot the tranny on an 8 foot gap drop, and landed about 7 feet down on my back wheel, rotated over onto my back. hit my head pretty hard, and had fluid in my ear, and now i cant hear 100% outa my left ear. also have skin torn off my back from the dirt. get well soon kona. cuz it sucks being outa it. luckily my steelhead frame gets here soonOriginally Posted by KonaRider24

Dude..... the doctors are loving you.
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
Tell me about it, I will know if anything is torn tomorrow at 1 pm ET. I'm still holding out for it being badly bruised.Originally Posted by mtnbiker66
Take note I was wearing armour as well. So to state it, I guess I don't get along with armour, hurt my ribs, I was wearing armor, busted my hand up twice was wearing armour, hurt my shoulder, was wearing armour. Anyone want a set of Fox Pads for cheap?
Is there a MTB lingo dictionary for us newbies? Tranny, shuttling......etc!
tranny: short for transition. An up or down slope, usually preceding or immediately following a jump.
shuttling: using a motorized vehicle to transport bikes and riders to the trailhead, usually to maximize downhill riding time.
Glad to hear you're okay Kona.
OH good!! Thank God that everything is okay, Kona! ((hugs))
You could be covered from head to toe literally with poison ivy like I am from a wreck.
It's on my friggon eyelids if that tells you anything.
Good luck with the shoulder bro, been there done that.

Hi red *waves hand in air*
Hey Siu , I knew what people were talking about when they made comments about the OCP , but know I know what it stands for . ThanksOriginally Posted by Siu Blue Wind
Well, I just stacked the Gimp on my third run of the clay forest. The bike is fine, cause I caught the cockpit as we both hit the ground. (I endoed the front wheel trying to power through the log section, instead of jumping it).Originally Posted by KonaRider24
The bike flipped three times, I lost some more skin. Tomorrow I'll remember to lift that front wheel, and trust gravity!
Kona, you wanna sell me that Fox armour? I'm tired of being a skin donor, and I'm freeridin'. Thanks.
