Please reference the post below to read my pollyanna treatise on wounds, injuries, and the inherently soulful qualities of riding through pain.
When it comes to gaping puncture wounds I feel differently.
How do I feel about these sorts of wounds? Dizzy to mildly nauseated, especially while irrigating it with a syringe.
This occurred while sliding out on the freshly laid pine needles on that favorite trail of mine, the Twilight Zone. I’m not sure how the lawsuit works- do I sue Fat of the Land and then they sue the Forest Service or is it the other way around?
Maybe 70lbs of pressure is too much for those conditions. Who knows?
Aside from that, we had a grueling ride. The sun, the sand, the tectonic pace. I tell you what, if I wanted to hire someone to guide old, retired people who have neve ridden mountain bikes in the woods before I would hire my friend Mystery, the children’s birthday party pony. He would be perfect.
Good thing he doesn’t know about the internet.
I’d litigate against Mystery for false imprisonment and torture.
Damn, I may have to turn over my “shins” moniker.
Dude that sucks, get better. When are you going to listen when I tell you Munson is EVIL!
Yikes! Munson must be evil.
I’d suggest you sue the bike manufacturer or maybe the bike shop, naturally you would sue them all. Too bad about the wound, punctures have always been my favorite. Something about the way they ooze. I am glad it wasn’t one of the armoring methods used on Munson.
If you are bleeding you aren’t mountain bike riding, you sure ride a lot.
He said twilight not Munson!
YEAH! Sweet Grandma Munson would never do me like this! Argh! Oh God it burns!
So where’s the ride tomorrow?
That picture is gross. There should be a warning or something. It upsets my delicate constitution, and will upset your mother.
You thought you could keep slandering Twilight and avoid the price? To remain unpunctured, speak well of it and keep clear of it (and mountain bikes generally). That’s working for me lately.
just saw a story on a surfer at Playa Hermosa, CR, and his leg picture is similar.
Something about a croc in the water.
S’quatch is right about it upsetting your mother. If you need a “home sick” note, let me know. But mainly, I seem to be the only one to ask if you’re current on your tetanus shot!! Lockjaw is not a nice thing to get.
On a side note:
Meeting Mr. and Mrs. Fat Lad this Tuesday at 7pm (unless their flight is delayed) at Barnacle Bills. Ya’ll come out and help give them a proper welcome and make some ride or drinking plans during their four night stay in TLH.
I understand that Sir Juancho has to take his VLJ to JFK and won’t be here for the brunt of their stay. So can anyone give these folks a poper bike tour of our local trail fare??
