I hope you all heal up well and soon. I don't really like where this thread is going--except for the attitudes of support and bravery you all display.

Actually I need to get me one of them there concussions so later on in life when I am obviously addled, I can have a good excuse--if I can remember it.

Had me blubbering like a 3 year old who had his tricycle taken away. Met up with a goat while going 50 mph, nothing broken on me, not sure about the bike gonna pick it up today. I'm prepared to ride it back, but my parents probably won't have it!!! Sorry no neat video.
Did the goat survive? Linky

Hope you feel better soon & the bike doesn't have too much damage.

More worried about the $$$$$ than anything else.

No drugs for me besides some OTC Excedrin for head,
Shit Richard!!!! No migraine style headache for me. But I'm learning there are many different types of concussions. I'm prone to have vasal vega episodes, and it's possible my brain shut down prior to impact to heed the pain. I was "out" for less than 45 seconds, since Pete shows up in the video 15 seconds behind my 30 Ha!!! I'm suffering from stress headaches right now ,but not much more. I went back to work Monday, and had work all week. I think the moving around helped keep my mind off the pain. I'm hoping you have ins and that you'll be back to normal in no time. DRZ or G/S?


Keep us updated on your condition please. And stop copying me.......it's expensive

After sitting in the hospital and getting up to leave the hip joint was rather "sensitive" to say the least. So much I decided to get an x-ray already had the CT head scan, looked "normal"

wreck happened at about 11AM, and it wasn't until 11:30 PM I really KNEW what time it was....day or night, as I was in my dark bedroom dealing w/ the migraine. Light bruise on elbow, sholder and hip all on right side. Helmet has some light rash, had aero stich pants and First Gear Killamanjaro Jacket, both did their jobs well!!!

My brain fog is almost all gone, my friend said I was out for quite a while, maybe over 5 minutes. Besides pulled groin and some bruising I'm pretty much back to normal.

Bike suffered minor damage, rash on valve cover, crash bar, MC cover, wind shield, all very usable as is.

Still may go to New Port Ritchey Florida Tues or Wens.....now that's cold weather dependant. Taking the R1150RS, I've got some charity work for my brother to do. We'll see.


Jenna- you're STILL experiencing side effects!!!??? Must have been a good hit.

Luckily my bike doesn't run. Maybe I won't catch the concussion bug

Sorry to hear it, Richard. I hope you don't have any lasting effects.

All is well in ST land.....Helped out at the shop for a few days. Gotta read up on wheel truing.

Just laced it up, didn't have time to do any head scratching.

Cleaned the holy shit out of the bike.

About a pound of sand came off of the left side...just random places. Wish I had taken a pic of my prefilters!! They were light brown Thanks Prutser for saving my airfilter. Geeze, I feel like I should swap my head bearings.

Finished the "dash".....not much to be proud of but it works and lets see how long it take me to break this one.!

Richard, hope you're doing alright.

Jenna- besides your cracked sternum, did you have any other injuries, or soreness to deal with.
