    Not too bad luckily, hit some pine needles going around a turn about 30. I saw them and straightened up and i thought I was fine but apparently I wasn't. Spent a few hours in the ER just getting x-rays, nothing broke just abrasions and 2 hematomas in my leg but other than that i'm just sore and stiff! I did get some vicodin though. :hs:

    Oh and yes i was wearing full gear.

    No :wtc: Regretting that right now for sure. And yes those pine needles are beyond slippery, I was shocked.

    No I didn't have riding pants, just normal jeans. I shouldn't have said full gear, I just had a leather jacket, helmet, gloves, boots, and jeans. I am definitely looking into riding pants now. Thats if my girlfriend doesn't ease up on how bad I need to sell it and how much she hates it.

    Damn man, that sucks. At least now you know what it's like to fall. It happens to everyone, sooner or later. Glad to see the bike isn't damaged too bad, and neither are you. Heal up and get back on the horse.

    That's about the best it could have been to tell you the truth. So many others don't get up

    Tell her "one of you has to go and I doubt it's gonna be the bike."
