Sorry to hear about Peter's mishap. I met Peter in June at the Blackfoot Off Road course. He was excited about his new 1200 GS and looking forward to the rest of the riding season. Speedy recovery. David

Andy,

I'd like to get Peters contact info as well as I have his jacket/helmet. Or perhaps we can meet later tonight so his gear can accompany his bike?
I believe you have my number; I'll pm it to you to be certain.

Thanks for making the trip to get his GS.

Peter:

Hope the Doctors patched you up nicely and that you'll be back in the saddle shortly.
If your memory is fuzzy, your bike is in pretty good shape. Don't worry about her.

Heal fast Peter. I've got the contact info for the police that showed up should you need it for insurance. Your bike looked fine except for one hand guard.

It was a great ride. I had never been out that way before and was pleasantly surprised by how twisty some of the roads were.

First aid for motorbikes

Are there any EMT types out there that could recommend the most practical and important components one should have in a SMALL kit?

I did find this out in the webs (and am still poking about for more.

Calgarians that dualsport

There was a first aid kit thread going in the equipment forum awhile ago. An EMT added a bunch of awesome info. Specifically for typical motorcycle injuries. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Edit:
450 is on back of truck. Headed out to Ghost again. Anyone interested in an off road trip?

Guys - I just got a call from Peter's brother.

He broke his shoulder blade (ouch), has multiple rib fractures, and a possible ankle fracture. He will be in Foothills for another couple of days. His brother asked that we hold off visiting today (he's pretty drugged up), I may try to get out there tomorrow to pay him a visit (unit 44).

Victor and I will pickup the bike tonight, and I'm going to haul it to Anderwerks tomorrow per Peter's request.

Andy

Thanks so much everyone! Few broken ribs, scapula, a few cracked vertebra, small ankle fracture. I should be up for some beer I owe you guys in a couple of weeks! Andy has my brothers phone # for the gear.

Lesson learned. KTM riders have a different concept of "big bike friendly"! :wink

What a great community we have

Good to see you have internet to keep you busy in the hospital. Heal up well so you can get out before the good weather is all gone. In the mean time there is the Ride Reports section to keep you occupied.

That way you can impress the nurses, "hey check out this crash...." Yep, that's me, I do my own stunts.

Peter - glad to see you posting.... you gave us a good scare last night.

We got to get some knobby tires on that GS... I think it was a big issue not having the same level of grip as the rest of us.

Take care of yourself and heal up well. Your GS looks like it got off much easier than you.

Cheers,
Andy

Thumb Last nights ride

Sorry to hear of the mishap I was hoping to go on this ride but figured it was more of a big bike ride ie... slab and i would be hard pressed to keep up on my little Dr650 We had a similar mishap a few years back with my brother out west where he was idling along taking in the scenery hit a rut and was end over in the ditch with a broken arm. Had to double him out to the pavement where his wife picked him up in a vehicle and off to the hospital while i headed back to Calgary for my truck to retrieve his bike, a lot can happen in a slow speed fall as we get older and our bones get more brittle. Good reason to always ride with a buddy, although I know the urge to ride makes this hard sometimes when time is a factor. Hope Peter has a speedy recovery.

Good to hear you're back online Peter. Cracked vertebrae, ouch...good thing they put you on the board, and we didn't try and move you out ourselves.

Will do on the posting - it will take a few days but I'll edit up a video. Btw any of the riders that were out there, if you don't want to be identifiable in the clip, just PM me. Most people don't care but some do (outstanding warrants in 5 other provinces , etc.). It will have to be PG13 for language! I'll send you a private link first Peter when it is done.

It was spectacular! I came away much more confident on loose gravel.
Lesson# 2: Assess your equipment and abilities prior to forging ahead. Running Anakee 3's and no experience in the greasy stuff led to this. Having dropped it in the muddy bits set me up to be tense and target fixated.
