Am I Lucky or what

Well! the day started good but as soon as we (Dagirl-thevinstigator and Doug) started to ride, we noticed that it was pretty dusty but I was behind Dagirl and was keeping up with her until I miss a turn and landed in a 5' deep rocky V shape ditch with the bike on top of me. When I saw what was happening I said Oh Shit but relax the body and stayed with the bike until the left front wheel hit the ground and flip both the bike and I. What really save me was new armor which is this one "Nemeses Racing Body Armor Large Black" from RM. If I did not have it on; morelikely I would of had some broken bones especially my back since it was laying in rocks/boulders and the bike was on top of me.
Funny thing is prior of taken off, they were giving me a hard time due to the look of the armor but I told them that I wanted to test it and it pass, lol!! Body is sore on the left side but no broken bones but we'll see tomorrow morning how sore I am, as for the bike; the left tie rod has a nice bent so I'll need to replace it with its ends, my PRM bumper is crack but due to been tow up the ravine and both my hand guards were basically torn off since their threads are no longer good. So over all the bike is ok for what happen.

Hopefully thevinstigator took some pictures since its GoPro was on but the dust was pretty thick.

Thank you Armor and dear old Lord

that sucks, i know how you feel. i was testing a 300ex for a buddy yesterday, he said it would cut out when up hit jumps or get on it hard. so i was cutting up a bit and i hit a rut, and it threw me off and i got knocked out, and bruised a few ribs and bruised my wrist and hands, i was very lucky i had a helmit on, i landed face first...i guess. i just looked up with blurred vision and seeing stars and was was wtf just happened. but the bike is fine

Glad your ok a Helmet and gear is not for if you crash but when if you ride gravity does work just ride safe and ride smart, we seen a lot of dummies riding in shorts tanktops, flipflops and no helmets this weekend even their kids had no gear whatsoever I guess some people just aren't to bright huh

Glad to see that you were able to come out with no broken bones. Sucks about the xx but, it could have been much, much worse.

All of the years that I've been riding; think this is one of the worst one I've been in but again, was lucky that it wasn't worst. Can feel the left ribs swollen up so I guess they are bruise but this old body will recoup, lol!!

The XX got the best of it; it landed on me, lmao!!

Glad to hear you are ok. Has anyone thought of a deadmanswitch? When those unexpected but allways just around the corner wrecks happen and if so please tell me what you think of them. I have had a couple of spills where i got lucky and my bike went into the bank instead of running off the cliff before it died

Nash, im glad your ok. Sounds like you and i both had a uh-oh this weekend. If i had been wearing a ninja turtle suit im sure i wouldn't be nearly as sore as i am now. My helmet has some nice battle scars where i was eventually able to get in front of the 700 and stop it from rolling about 10 more times.
