I was practicing at Pacific Raceways up north by Ket, WA last wednesday and went over the bars... story>>> i had my suspension done by DEVOL Engineering. Cost me 800$. and i had been riding/racing on it for about 2 months and it started feeling week on me, so i called up devol and they were suppost to be at the track there for practice. so i was going to have them look at it for me. well 1- they never showed up. 2- i was in the rythem section and landed really hard of the double (going into triling out of the rythem) and my bike shifted down into first so i didnt have enough power to make the triple, therefore landing front wheel down, throwing me over the bars and the bike landing on top of me... results: 4 broken ribs, a punctured lung, loss of consciousness for about an hour they said, lacerations all over my body, lots of pain, and no sex for 8 months. The track owner told me after that they thought i was dead, becasue they couldnt get a pulse for like 5 minutes.I ended up getting a helicopter ride out of their to harbor-view hospital (17,160$ helicopter ride) so unfortunately i wont be riding boys (and girls) so keep me updated with how those trails and track are looking!! have fun and be careful.
I will say that this after the track owner telling me what he did, i just would like to stress to you guys how important it is to wear your safety gear, PLEASE DO SO. Im only 23 years old but i see things a little differently now... for more info or questions feel free to pm or respond. again be careful and thankful y'all!!!
NOW for the questions:
1. triple in 2nd gear?? How long was the triple??
2. is your insurance going to cover your bird ride?
3. Why no sex for 8 months? what happened to your peepee?
4. How did your parents react?
5. What kinda upper body protection were you wearing?
