When you try to be cool by pullin' a wheelie downtown in front of mad peeps but you just end up stacking HARD. Separated shoulder (lifetime total of 6 now), broke 3 ribs (lifetime 11 now, hahaa) and to add insult to injury my pedal sliced the f*ck out of my calf DEEP, hella fat and muscle showin'.....never had staples before, the numbing needle is no joke folks....talk about pain. I was about 100' into the wheelie and started falling off the back, grabbed a bunch of brake because I was past 12 at that time. Just got TruckerCo pads on the Vimana Slope that are super grippy and it put the bike down so fast that it threw my chest into the handle bar. Was going fast at this point, lost control, bike first swerved left, then back right quick so I high-sided and it threw my right shoulder into the pavement hella hard, I just stuck, didn't even bounce or slide....sounded like someone stomped on some Cap'n Crunch inside the shoulder. Then the arm went into the ribs. I was messed up. All in all I haven't had that violent of a crash in a good while.....barely was able to pick myself up off the ground. Moral of the story: Bikes Are Fun.
