A Buddy and I went to a pratice track after being up drinking all night. I Went ripping for a nice jump and blacked out in mid air. They say it looked like "You just went to sleep on the tank". When I woke up, there was about 5 to 8 guys looking down at me. I was out for 15 minutes.
The bike was all tore up. I had no idea were I was or how I got there. After I gathered my wits,
I went went back to the truck were my Friend was waiting. He yells " Where the #^%$ have you been and what the ^&@% happened to MY BIKE!
:) :D :D :D

I was 13 years old, on a '83 yz100, doing 55-60 mph on the beach, and I hit a 1' high sand shelf that I didn't see until it was too late. I went over the bars and rolled for about 100'. Couldn't move for 5 minutes. Bike started on first kick once I could get up...

I was stopped at a Poker Run checkpoint. I put the bike in gear, floored it and expected to move out. Problem was the bike didn't go into gear and my foot got stuck on the pegs and down I went with about 50 people watching. :)
My buddy yelled out "WHO BROUGHT THE COOL GUY!" and took off.
The worst part was my bike flooded and I couldn't get it started for about 5 min. :D

I was Powering over a fourth gear rise and gave my CR500 full throttle to pull a wheelie and the throttle jammed on full - result knocked me senseless and broke two ribs and my tail bone. grazed scratched ripped and twisted everything. My bike ended up thirty feet off the side of the track down a gully, but was virtually un-damaged.

Haven't been able to ride since (11 months now, because of tail bone).

Also about 12 years ago I flipped my 1988 Cr 500 in top gear on a gravel road with jeans on, but I kept hold of the bars as it went over landing on the gravel with my knees, 8 stiches in one knee and three in the other, you could see my knee caps on both sides.

I carried on though and finished the ride which took another hour - the things you do when you are young ha !!

That was the day I learned of the importance of proper riding gear.

cheers
