Have you had a Bike/Trike accident that you want to tell us about
Way back when I was 22 ......
Had my bike licence for about 6months, following a mate who had his for several years and knew the road a little better than I did.
Found myself a little fast and wide into a corner, wound up on the gravel so I straightened up and took it off the road (not wanting to lay it down) because there was such a wide run off area (clever thinking from me).
Or NOT !!!! ...... Unfortunately ...... due to the long grass I didn't see the narrow channel drain until it was too late ....
Over the handle bars I went ..... performing some spectacular commando rolls ..... (wish I had it on camera ..... lol)
Rode the bike back into town ...... then a trip up to the hospital where I had x-rays and was told nothing was wrong ...... just muscle and soft tissue damage.
A month later and still unable to walk properly ...... went for further scans to find I had a fractured hip socket ......
Hmmmm ....... no wonder it was so sore ...... lol
Anyhow ...... only got back on the bike 2 years ago ...... and am loving it.
Older and wiser now (though still haven't grown up yet)...... and a little more careful on roads I don't know ........ lol
