Default Motorbike Accident....

Today I went out on my track today on my bike with my dad. The track has yet to be broken in yet and is still getting worn down. So basically your still riding on grass which is rather long and slippy.... I've had bad experiences myself on this with the back tire whipping out when you accelerate. Warning my dad about this I stepped back and watched him scream round the track. My father being a seasoned racer I wasn't to worried about him falling (happened twice with my brother and once with me) On his second lap he approached the tightest hairpin of the track and hit the back brake hard and tire swung out from underneath him. He quickly turned into the skid and it failed to do anything and so he put the his leg out to stop this. At the time he was dong about 20 mph and the entire weight of the bike was slammed on his knee which tore ligaments and dislocated it for the short amount of time from the bike to the ground...Where the bike landed on top of it and un dislocated it.

Managed to get him home ok and some ice on his knee. Wont be able to walk for a good week but he'll live

The bike itself is the most amazing thing I've experienced in my life. The speed in which in it accelerates is more astounding than any roller coaster...Hence why I haven't been discouraged from riding it since my accident

Just though I would share my day's event with you

ooooh, that sounds nasty. Ligaments take ages to heal, my mum tore hers in a skiing accident.

That bike can't go 0-60 in 2 seconds, jay.

It's only a 125
