    Ive spend a majority of my life on two wheels; both street and dirt. Well the last thing i would ever think to happen did last tuesday.

    I took a buddies ktm for a spin in a field at wirk before he traded it in. Well i continued up an embankment. It was all somewhat slow speed stuff, but i lost balance and traction and was thrown from the bike, across the ground and headfirst into a parked tractor.

    Luckily i had someone there and he applied pressure and called paramedics. I got out of the hospital on thursday with a fractured skull, broken nose, broke cheekbone. They emplaced 6 titanium plates, 30 some screws and well over 50 stitches. Im just happy im not a vegetable and am able to write this. So even for the quickest rides, wear your lid. Ill post up some pics soon. As long as you guys arent grossed out

    I hate wearing a helmet. Just rode today without one. Feel stupid every time I ride without one. :mad:

    Glad you lived to tell the tale, and thanks for sharing. Maybe someone like me will change their behavior and save their own life. :cool:

    Glad you're safe. I agree, gear up, even for a short ride.

    Not to detract from your story but I took my roommates new little 50cc pit bike for a spin in front of our house, accidentally wheelied and took a spill, going slow. Hand stuck underneath and ripped a few nails off. Luckily nothing worse, but it hurt like hell. I won't make the mistake of riding without gear again, even on such a tiny bike. Could've easily been my head.
