Good Times Go Bad

Met up with my dad today to do a little enduro riding for the day. Had a great time besides some parts being a bit slick. At the end of the day we decided to get a pictures of us screwing around. Well, first I went and my dad took some pics of me and everything went fine. Well, then he wanted a picture of him too so I got the camera and waited for him to come around the corner. Well as he is doing this his back tire loses traction causing him to head straight for me. At the rate of speed he was going and the fact that I am in motox boots I don't have time to get away. He hits me and I fly straight up on the handle bars as we both then crash to the ground. It honestly feels like I was just in a fight and lost by KO. On top of that I ruined his entire headlight fixture on his bike. Surprisingly, I managed to hold on to the camera the whole time without it getting any damage lol.

Here is the picture of my dad about 3 seconds before he hits me:

Here are some pics he took of me:

Sorry for the poor quality. The camera we were using wasn't top of the line.

It's always fun man. It's also a constant recuperation process. :lol: I have actually been knocked unconcious amongst various other injuries since I have been riding the past 12 years, but you make it to the next trip out. And like I said, I ended up pretty lucky for the circumstances.

I like the middle picture. And you are one lucky guy. That could have been a lot worse. Better a bike than a car!
