jeez what to say. im flustered to say the least so ill just spit it out and go from there. had another off a couple of hours ago. his name is wes. i myself was not there, but from what im told he ran over a gatorade bottle and lost control. from the marks and whatnot i would estimate 40-60 or so. ran up on the curb, then off, then bike slid into another curb. not sure on wes' condition but have been told its not good. i left work to go to the site and the ambulance had already been and gone. bike is fucked. no gear :(

yeah thats two friends in less than a week. get your gear dude. now even i dont wear full gear 100% of the time but i do the majority. when you never wear gear at all eventually the inevitable will happen and it will only hurt if you are lucky... :(

update...


wes is ok, well for the most part. he got like 50 stitches in his head, broken wrist, road rash on face, head, arms, leg, knee, hips, and his eye is practically swollen shut. with a helmet he would have walked away. he got very lucky and will be back to normal in no time it looks.



now to get up and see rob...:(

lee, man, sorry to hear about wes. um, yeah, when his wrist is healed, beat the holy hell out of him for not wearing anything at all. hell, at least wear a helmet if you think skin grafts are cool and all...

haven't met him (I don't think...), but I wish him well. let me know if there is anything i can do...

I went in last night after i got back into town to see wes. I was shocked to see how bad he looked! I felt so bad for him..But i agree with lee if he were wearing a helment he would have walked away! Times like this we just thank god that nothing worse happened. I hope he recovers fast and is back on his feet soon. He is a good friend and i hate to see him hurt. Sorry to hear that willys bike is totalled. I hope that things get resolved and back to normal..So if your gonna ride wear the gear!!

His injurys were:
Two inch laceration above right eye, 6 inch laceration middle of forehead back into his hairline which the DOC could left 4 inches of skin off his skull. They sutured fine and scaring shouldn't be to bad. Y shaped laceration right elbow.Road rash on cheek close to eye also right shoulder, hips, forearms, knees. Roadrash on face and shoulder equal to 3rd degree burns. Severe brusing to right thigh and right eye swollen shut.Also suffers a broken right wrist which will probably require surgery. Must of his impact was on his face and to see his glasses you'd think he died. But hes doing well!

The tiller he has, did he get it from the impound yard? If it's that guy, I've met him once. Reguardless, I wish Wes a speedy recovery.

Wish him a speedy recovery. Yup having gear he might have had no injury. How in the world do you crash from hitting a bottle did he panic when he hit it?

well givin my experience i would say it was a panic situation after hitting said bottle. all i can really do is guess as i was not there. when he gets feeling better he may come on here and shed a lil light
