Nothing more than tires muscles at the end of 80 miles of riding, thank God.

I'm not very smart but... rolled 4 different times 2 of which going up bad hills 1 doing side wheelies and 1 when a landing a jump on a 3 wheeler and having front end broke off. never really got bad hurt just bruses and bumps. had a sprained ankle when had a 3 wheeler left me behind doing a wheelie. I should be the poster child for wearing a helmet.

When I was younger I hit a wash out going pretty good. Flew over the top of the handle bars and damaged the jewels as I cleared the front head lights. Thankfully after a few minutes I was able to walk away. The bike was a good one though and had no damage.

A bunch of buddies and I were at the sand dunes last week for a few days of atv'ing, some had dirt bikes. I didn't clear a jump off a razorback, atleast 20 feet in the air, hit a wall of sand at about 40 mph! (picked the worst line I could! LOL!) I'm not gonna lie, it hurt! Knocked my aSpam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word  out! I remember jumping right back up, running up to my preddy thinking I was going to just hop back on and ride off like nothing happened. Then all I remember was waking up, hearing myself breathing heavily and one of my buddies saying "he must be allright, he's still breathing"! By then they were all surrounding me. I was out for a while! I laughed it off and off we rode. I still have sore muscles I didn't know existed! I bent my steering stem and broke the brackets to my air box, broke the hold down screw to my fuel tank, but no damage to the A arms! Who said Predators aren't built tough! LOL! I really gotta quit riding like I was 18, though!

Got hit by a Dumb @ss in a Sand Rail. Knocked me out for over 45 minutes, cracked my sternum and screwed up my shoulder not to mention my Quad.
