TremF Posted July 4, 2017 Share Posted July 4, 2017 I'm currently sat with 4 stitches above my left eye & my right arm in a sling waiting to go back for an x-ray. I was riding to work this morning when I heard a crack after riding off a curb. It was only an inch drop if that. I thought it may have been something to do with the pedal or case so stopped for a look but didn't spot anything so carried on riding slowly. Not far along the way my ACM cut out. I banged my head and hurt my right hand, wrist & elbow. With blood gushing I had to walk back home carrying my ACM. My wife cleaned me up & took me to A&E to have my arm checked. As I said, I have 4 stitches above my left eye and a sling until I can go back for an x-ray. I don't wear safety gear because in 2 years riding I've only had 2 spills that caused injury until now. I'll look at a helmet and wrist, elbow pads at the least but I generally rude at a sedate pace & I don't want others seeing me all padded up & worrying if I could injure them too. Especially as it's a full face helmet that's required really for EUC. As well as the cut I also have grazing to my check & jaw that a normal helmet wouldn't stop. The ACM turns on but beeps & the wheel won't lock for balance it just turns freely. If it's just the board then I have a spare I can fit but it won't be until my hand/elbow ease up. I get my Monster back tomorrow so don't know whether to use that for work or get the bus for a few days. I'm right handed & it's my right arm so will be limited in the office but at least it is an office so if I go in I can type slowly lol Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
