In the time it took Gunz's legs to heal, I broke four ribs, my hand, my wrist and my foot.

And I was still riding before him.

That's not awesome.
I'm still not riding for another 2 weeks and 1 day. I have only been fooling around and doing simple things in the front of my house when my mother has not been home.

Oh yeah? Well I busted my knee, sprained both ankles on two separate occasions, and got alcohol poisoning, all in a month's time.

Suck it. *x-hands over balls*

Oh yeah? Well I was racing two years ago and broke three ribs, my hip, bruised my kidney so I was peeing blood and got a concussion in one fall, and still finished in second.

Oh yeah? Well my friend Omar got impaled by his handlebars, had them slice his rectum, stomach, and liver, and then got his barend stuck on his tailbone, which he had to have surgically removed.

Suck that. *x-fists over balls with middle fingers out*

Hahaha. That's so odd to be impaled by a handlebar. I still had a much longer recovery time, and nothing large impaled me in the chest.

By the way, how is Omar doing? All joking aside, that must have been traumatic, to say the least.

He rode someone's bike already at the park, with a catheter and colostomy bag. He's a bit miffed that he can't really ride for another six months, but he's accepted it.

No, you're supposed to thread all three in; the two darker parts are the screws, because they're steel, whereas the barend itself is aluminum. One of the screws probably had backed and fallen out.

He is tougher than I am! I'm glad he's accepted the fact that he can't really ride for another six months .

Obviously not if he was riding someone else's bike!

But dang, that sucks.
