Forgot The Pucks

I think this guy went from,"I am so cool!, to "Hey, look at me!", to "Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! I can still hold it", to "Man I look like an idiot!" in about 30 seconds.

"Choose up to 20 Different Photos on CD - $80.00"

I wonder if the guy paid the $80 to buy his full series of 14 photos, or is he just bought the first 6 where it still kinda looks like he knows what he's doing...

I just question why anyone would stick their knee out in a pair of jeans. Do you like the feeling of kneecap on asphalt? Is he naive enough to think it wouldn't hurt?

I bet he's the guy saying he won't wear gloves because he can't feel the bike as well then...might change his mind now, along with some other protective wear, but probably not.

He'll probably get right back on when he feels better in the same garb. Hell those jeans are probably his permanent riding jeans cause there lucky since he didn't die in them.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

he was just going a bit quick for that line is all.looks to me like he apexed a bit early and had to stick his knee out as a sacrificial part...if he would have shifted his body more, he might have been able to hold it, too.

I'd like to find out what became of his knee & hands.

This might be a little telling. Wonder if the rag is there because his left hand is all chewed up and bloody.

At the time... I can't answer that.
NOW... He's thinking "chicks dig scars" and since he has good HQ pics of him in the act posted on the 'net, he should be able to use the two as leverage to pound some box.

Hooray for sympathy sex

Just for giggles, I went through the KillBoy and us129 photo stores. He made a few passes and had his knee out on several. Maybe a bad line running too hot, but still poor choice of gear.

If you click the "next" button quickly when looking at the photos you can make a movie!! LOL!
Thank God his ball cap on the passenger seat made it through ok.
It looks like he did minimal damage to the bike also.

Hey. Maybe we do!

Okay, I had on a helmet with a closed visor, gloves, leather jacket, steel toed boot, and I'm not that bad ass. I had armored knee and shin guards on under my jeans.

I can't believe that guys knee looks as good as it does. I would have bet on bone showing through on that one. Holy crap that guy is dumb. Hell, I was dumb, and I had gear on. I havn't bothered going back to that road in years. Go to a freakin track.

Scabs in flexible areas - no fun. I can imagine that thing cracking open every time he bends his knee. Ouch.

Bah, I've done worse mowing the lawn when I tried to flick a riding mower around a tree.

Top tip for scabs in bendy areas; bend your arm/leg till it scabs up. Then you can unfold it.
