Hey everyone, just wanted to share my story. I was out on a 300 mile ride through some tight and unfamiliar roads. Coming around a hard right hander I was kinda powering through it and to my surprise the next corner was downhill and hard left. I lowsided at 50-60 mph, skid across the road into into the woods, I broke my hip, and damaged my sciatic nerve by sliding with a dislocated right leg(worst pain ever). Thank god I was wearing good gear. My jacket and helmet were tore up pretty bad but barely got any road rash!
It will be a pretty long road of recovery due to the nerve damage and surgery, but could have been so much worse. I didn't hit any trees and stopped right before a cliff! My bike... not so lucky, it bounced off a ton of trees and is mangled.

Everyone ride safe and please wear your gear. Never know when you'll need it.

Here are a few pics when we picked up the bike. Also a before pic, and my hip after surgery.... Also i was not wearing riding pants only jacket gloves and helmet, ended up with some road rash on my left knee.
Thanks for everyones support. I can't wait to heal up.
