 Why didn't you wear any bodyarmor?

 intro was really,really good

 the pictures from the hospital killed the stokage for me. time to enter a state of depression.
  • + 12
 if you read anything he crashed and ruptured his spleen as well as breaking him arm :/
  • + 2
 @Sysics, because body armour does'nt stop you breaking bones, i choose not to wear full boy armour now because i find it tires me out too quickly, and actually makes me crash more, ironically. sick vid and good luck on the recovery rafi!

 Rupetered his spleen.....uhhhh.....makes you cringe when you think about it...

 lol you guys neg'd me probs because you thought i was being sarcy, i wasn't, I ruptured my spleen and had to have it taken out, i landed on the end of my handlebars, not fun.

 Personally I'd buy a new shovel

 IS THE DOG OKAY?!?!?! i was stoked on the dogs part lol he was sick

 SHIZZLE did he just clear his dog what a legend !! Big Grin

 @bawzofsteel
I hear that often, that you crash more if you wear armor. Its logic cause you know that you can't hurt yourself THAT much and go more risky.

I dont say that you can't break your bones even with a fullbody armor but the energy of the crash goes into the plastic and can pretend much worse injurys.
  • + 3
 there is no body armour that protects your abdomen though, and that is the serious injury in this case. his arm break wasn't bad as when I picked him up to move him he pushed off with it.
  • + 3
 Unlucky, all going perfect until then. Get better soon. And Sam your videos are awesome
  • + 4
 thats why i never ride alone
  • + 1
 dont 661 pressure suits have a kidney strap to prevent internal ruptures?
  • + 1
 Yeah some do but they are more to protect from being impaled on sticks, bars etc. and less about reducing the effect of an impact. Great vid, well worth VOD, get well soonSmile Salute

 good to hear, but how did you avoid surgery if you ruptured your spleen may i ask?
  • + 1
 i had what they call a catagory 3 injury out of 5 so i was in the middle so it can go either way cos 1 and 2 are no probs 4 and 5 are operation 3 is in thr middle can go either way,

 he has a ruptured spleen i think the can can stay there ha

 Who gives a shit about the can? The video was sick and the rider got hurt; the only two things you should be commenting about
  • + 8
 we put the can there for the shot and then picked it up afterwards, ever thought of that?
we don't litter the woods because we have respect for them and don't want the trails destroyed

 haha i think its funny us as bikers put moto in front of the names of some stuff. just call it what it is lol not "moto whoops" just whoops or instead of a "moto whip" just a whip. idk thats just me.
but on the other hand great video and hope he recovers soon went from being pumped on the video to feeling really bad get well soon fellow rider man
  • + 3
 i imagine:
Biking Woops = Lame excuse for jumps on amateur cross country and skills courses (basically hills).
Moto Woops = Big fast Bumps that you hit at speed and it takes skill to do as it throws you off balance (like in MX, hence moto).
Biking Whips = A twitch kicking the arse end of the bike out to set up in mid air on a hip jump or something (still looks cool)
Moto Whip = Whipping it out wilder than a nuns pubes like in x-games biggest whip for sick photo's and video's and big wow factor.

Moto is awesome because your doing something that originated from motocross on a bike (: however i don't see why it matters? glad to hear Rafi is out the hospital now tup

 Great video once again Sam. I'm guessing this was the crash you were talking about the other day? Hope you're back and better soon Rafi!
