Well fellow riders I be down three times this year and I not trying to push my luck. So I will be off my bike until next year. Well she not ridable anyway.

The first was in March broke my wrist. Plastic bag got under the front tire at about 5 mph.

Second was June 15th, plug the front tire and it went flat at about 30 mph.
(didn't wear my jacket, yes rode rash hurts like hell)

Third was June 20th, replace the front tire and didn't set the bead correct and it blow out this time doing 75 mph. (had the jacket on, which leather do its job, but re-opened the road rash on the knee).

But anyway I still be reading the post on here and will put my input when I can.

Be safe out there.

You need to be more carefull with your tires man. I think it is a wise decision that you stop riding for a while. If and when you start again, have someone do your bike work that knows what they're doing.

Ouch.

1. Don't do your own tires unless you have the training/equipment to do so, IMO.
2. Don't plug tires, replace them ASAP.

Good luck, hopefully you have a change of heart and get back on your horse this season!

3rd accident, huh?

Some people just aren't meant to ride, dude. It's not for everybody.
Some people just aren't meant to work on motorcycles!

First wreck, hey, stuff like that happens.
Second wreck, those plugs are for an old work truck, not a motorcycle. Be glad you were only going 30 mph, not 60 through a corner in the mountains...
Third wreck, do it yourself tire mounting should be reserved for your kid's bicycle.

How did you not set the bead? I was always under the impression that it's either on or off. And if it's off it won't even hold air.

Man, that's some bad luck. Maybe starting on a 750 wasn't the smartest thing in the world, but it sounds like you've got a totally different bunch of problems.
