hi black ops
reading your atv accident and the helmut story, i know what you mean...
my last motorbike accident was at 120mph.. i was at work and had to go out and took the bike. all i was wearing was jeans and a light jacket, i wasnt
going far and thought putting my gloves on was a waste of time but something was telling me to wear them, so i did.
anyway, i was passing 2 cars about 90mph when the bike suddenly went into a tank slapper, i accelerated hard to try and break the tank slapper but it
beat me, which is why i was doing 120mph when i was threw off the bike, have you seen the extreme skiers trying to ski down a mountain (nutters) and
mess up and end up rag dolling all the way down, that is how i travelled 100yrds down the road and i remember the whole time. the gloves, i would have
certainly lost fingers without them, when i eventually stopped rag dolling down the road i was in bad shape, thumbs and fingers dislocated and very
black plus a lot of road rash but the gloves saved my hands. got to hospital and found i had broken ribs and 3 compressed fractures in my neck and
that is the last time i have been on a bke, funny thing is, i allways KNEW i would never die on a bike and i mean i honestly knew, i dont know how or
why, i just did and it came true.
if i believed in luck, my accident would not have happened or suffer the pains that i suffer today because of that single accident but i honestly
believe i was helped by SOMETHING or SOMEONE that day..
there is not to many people who can say they survived a 120mph accident and messed about for a few hours before going to the hospital and being told
they have just broken their neck.
no i dont believe in luck
