Yea the lame part when I hurt my foot is that I didn't even crash. It's the worst injury I've had in my life and I've crashed pretty hard in my many years riding. Just typing this reminds me of the time I went for a pass on my buddy who was in a Honda pilot in some whoops out by baldy Mesa. I remember coming together and his Rear tire and my foot peg came together and I went sailing over the top and thudded on my back in the whoops. I flew like 20 feet. Of course I was like 22 then.
Another good one was when I was 17, brand new to me ktm300 dxc 1992, 5th gear pinned on the uphill road jump at dove springs. Missed the downshift to 4th and when I went sailing 50 feet in the air seeing that cliff comIng right at me made me rethink my stupidness. When I landed the bike came to a dead stop and I bounced over the bars. Closest I've come to death on a motorcycle until I started riding dual sport dodging cars.
