I been playing on the 525 every night round the farm and Theres an awesome play area for people better than me... I didn't fully understand what was over a rampy jump thing and landed nose first into a small ditch/bank. Stopped very abruptly, got burns on inside of knees from sliding forward on radiator shrouds lol and pretty bruised chest area from smashing into the un padded stem and bars

Never even considered wrist braces! Don't be like Nathan 

Someone pointed out recently that if you have wrist braces then the next point that's probably going to snap from the impact/shock is your collar bone. Whether they are correct or not I'm not sure but I'd rather a wrist than a collar bone

Unfortunately the scafoid bone makes a terrible sacrificial link. It's a very shit bone to heal and can have some terrible consequences. Last time I was in a cast for 16 weeks. Nightmare. 

I don't agree with those guys about transferring the damage, I have delicate lady wrists that I reckon are just piss weak.

ohh noooo! run out of talent or bikes fault? hope your ok

Definitely talent. Bike is faultless. 

I was too focused on the immediate challenge and not looking far enough ahead to see where I was going to end up. 

Really lucky I was so close to home and not in the Bush or whops as was able to pull choke to raise idle and get it back one handed.

So bikes all good then?

Haven't really looked. There was a strange buzzing from the front end during the return trip which could be front bearings but that's a minor. 

I was a bit worried about the forks being bent backward but haven't checked, people stack these things far harder than this without problem. 

 

 

To clarify, this was the 525 dirt bike not the 530 road legal bike.

  • flyingbrick changed the title to Nathan's motorcycles.....

Spent an hour today making a tail tidy. Could have ordered one but aside from costing $40 off Ali express it also would have taken 6 weeks to get here... And broken arm so what else am I gonna do. 

 

Basically just removed the stock mud guard, cut it down Heaps using a renovator, bent it Using a lighter with its button cable tied down and then drilled some holes. 

Still need to buy a nice compact numberplate light.
