First off today

Postby jagx400 » Mon Nov 12, 2012 18:54 pm

Came a cropper today, don't know if I was hit or fell, I have no recollection. Just got my Bryton 50 back and it happened on a straight piece of road.

Fractured wrist, badly swollen hip and cuts and bruises to my face. Scary thing is, I cannot remember cycling the remaining two miles to work. I went down a road I wouldn't normally use.

Oh well a few days off the bike, which incidentally has no damage

I ache :cry: :cry:

I tried to warn people...

Sounds bad though.. if you came off that badly on a straigh piece of road it would suggest you were hit? (unless it was downhill?)

Hope it heals quick

Impressed if you back on the bike after a few days with a broken wrist

That can be a killer, even in a straight line.

I cannot remember the route I took to work, so must have had a good whack on the head. They did do a head scan at the hospital, all must have been clear. If I had been knocked off I wouldn't have remembered as all is still blank. Weird when you cant remember.

I certainly ache this morning, my hip is still swollen, lucky I never broke it. Crazy thing is, cant wait to get back on the bike.

Mud on the road left by a tractor and a slightly off camber road and it can cause the back wheel to step out on you - nearly caught me out a couple of times on straight roads. If you're riding at a fair pace this twitch of the back wheel can be enough to throw you off the bike - happened to a mate.

Riding in the dark you don't tend to spot mud on the road easily until you're on the slippery stuff, by which time it's like riding on ice.

Yup and it has a slight split, so it did the job. Probabley save me from a fractured skull. Learned from my Motorbike days, after a bang, bin them and get a new un.
