Default Dun Borked Myself

Hey guys, been a while since I've posted last. Been going through a number of larger life changes, but I should start to be active as I used to be

So, I finally dun did it. I was racing motocross Sunday (Aug 3rd, was also my birthday) when the throttle on the CR500 stuck wide open... The bike looped out, sent me HARD on my back, rotated forwards to my right temple, and then HARD on my back again. Pulled off the track, loaded everything up, and went home. Decided to go to the ER on Tuesday because the back pain wasn't going away. Turned out I had broken my T-4 vertebrae, and fracture my T-2,3, and 5. (I was WALKING like that for two days!!) Had surgery last night and now everything is held together by screws and plates. I'm up-ish and about in the hospital now, walking around, harassing nurses, the works. Should be sent home Sunday or Monday.

Enjoy a good stick for me

Here's the crash video. Discretion advised....

Heal up and get back on the track soon! That 500 2 smoker is a monster of a bike. Did the Leatt break at all in the crash?

From what I could tell, the brace is fine. I'll look over it some more once I get home from the hospital later today. I did notice that all of the adjustment tabs popped out of their tabs
