Ouch... Take it easy, Conga. The tiki can wait, there's lots more where he came from. Rest a bit, you'll be carving again soon I'm sure. Glad you came out of it with only minor injuries.

Get well soon mate

hi guys...thanks for the good wishes...did something
really stupid...only been riding around 4 years...
one of my highway pegs fell off and i decided to make
a quick stop to retrieve it...first mistake...was going
about 55 and hit the brakes...but because of traffic
behind me I moved over to the gravel too soon...probably
20 or so...and hit the deck right away...but since I'm
a fairly aggressive skiier...I know how to fall...did a
little tuck and dropped on my left side...pretty
sore ribs and back but reasonably happy with the minor
injuries. My Suzuki Volusia suffered a cracked front
fender...many scrapes on the windshield...broken left
mirror...and bent shifter. But I'm a tough tiki..
i got back on and rode the last 22 miles home.
thanks again. will get back to carving later in the
week.

Conga,

Glad you are OK. Rest up and heal up. I've been riding my whole life (road and motoX) and have paid the price. I've broken almost every bone and recently had 2 plates, 4 pins, 5 screws, and a cadaver bone graft put in my left arm. It makes carving, and life in general, difficult. Please take care and watch the loose stuff, it will bite you every time! I would hate to see you sidelined permanently.

-Gman

What a story Conga, you are a lucky dude. Glad you had the smarts or experience to fall properly. Probably saved you a stack of injuries. The one thing I Gotta know? Did you retrieve the fallen highway peg?? To go thru all that and come up empty handed is ...well, tough. Glad you're OK. Next time keep your mind on the road ahead instead of the tiki you are carving. Tikis will bite you in many ways!

hey G-Man and Ben...thanks...G-Man you must be one
tough biker...and I bet you have a few lingering aches
and pains.
Ben...yeah one of the guys who stopped to help me scurried
down the highway and found the peg in the ditch...when he
handed it to me I said "now it doesn't seem quite as
important as it did a couple of minutes ago." Feeling
a bit better today..think that might be the combination
of muscle relaxers...pain pills...and...don't tell the
doctor...a couple Mai Tais.

There Are 2 types of motorcycle riders.

Those who have went down and those who will.

Glad to hear this one only caused sore ribs.

Conga, hope you get better soon. At least now if you mess up your carving, you can say "Motor skills" challenged. Just like me.

Many Mahalos!

several days out...the tiki is giving me the evil eye
tho...so it won't be real long!
