Haven't heard of the clutch thing before. Broken femur takes alot of force! Can't have been fun. Did that wrist ever get back to full strength? Still have problems?
I dunno if I pulled clutch or even how I landed, all happened too fast. Was hooking up the beach and hit a little mound which bucked me straight up and off. Probably looked hilarious.
Rider in front had a go pro so you don't see the actual crash. Just me keeled over ages from my bike.
Got xrays yesterday and the radiologist said he can't see anything. Good news but won't know for sure til my doc has a better look. Been riding today and it's not much fun. Probably should give it a few more weeks.
Anyway. I'm way off topic and doin my wall-of-text thing, sorry gents.
Yes, my wrist did eventually heal up and get back to full strength - twisting range of motion took a couple of years to come back fully. I looked like a 'special' person when holding my hand out to get change at a drive-thru window for awhile. That was back in '98 though, and the only really lasting quality besides the scars is a 20" titanium rod in my leg! This latest right wrist injury of mine is finally starting to feel better, so hopefully I can get back on the bike within the next week.
Glad your injuries don't seem too bad. Getting hurt and not riding sucks!
Back to tire sizes!
Two tire-related things that have piqued my interest lately are the new X-series from Bridgestone
and the Baja No-Pinch tire tool. Bridgestone
's M403 and 4040 are already outstanding tires, so hopefully the X will be as well! And if you haven't seen that Baja tire tool, check it out. Looks pretty nifty.
