bike accident


Recommended Posts

had this accident a few years back, not car related but thought i would post up


used to do dirt jumping back in the day, one particular jump, only bout 20ft in the air, as i landed front forks snapped


resulting into smaching my face, losing a tooth, tearing my lip apart, tearing inside of my mouth from front to back along side of my cheek, smashed and bruised windpipe, very slight hairline fracture on eye socket

If your gonna do it, do it properly! lol


Glad your alright, i used to do this sort of thing too, but had one or two near misses (as well as a mate having a large one) and thought i best stop or something bad's gonna happen.

Do you still ride after that?

yes i tried to ride after, but couldnt get anywhere near to how good i used to be, so i sold everything, before i got rid though this is one of the bikes i built from scratch, took me ages to save for the frame alone let alone all the parts lol

Ouch mike, you never told me about this. Youve healed well


I broke my foot and leg doing dirt jumping, was quite high in the air and just before i landed my foot slipped off the pedal and all the weight of the landing was transferd to my foot and leg. I hopped all the way home and then whent on holiday the next day so was in a wheel chair for half of it :(

Would have had to been a full face covering helmet though to stop that!! Pretty Horrific. I have half a fake front tooth after a incident where my head argued with a kerb. Also have 3 scars under my hair from biking incidents.... nothing quite that extreme though. I dont even have a bike now because some skumbags thought they would vandalise it 3 or 4 times..
