I just heard that Mushin went down Sunday.

Here is his post he sent to the office.

Welp, I went and had me a little accident. 35 mph style. Broke my foot but other wise unscathed. But only because I wore my gear. Helmet. Jacket. Armored gloves. Reinforced jeans with layers. Saved my ass.

Wear your gear people. Wear your gear.

Keep the old koger in your prayers! However, he met a very pretty EMT! I would not recommend meeting women this way.

Update, his bike is okay. He was on his friend's fatboy. It sustained minor cosmetic damages like floorboard, mirror and scratches on the tank.

Thanks for the well wishing. She didn’t want to stop. :ROFLMAO:

holy crap people, wear your gear. My jacket, gloves and reinforced pants look like Freddy Krueger had a go at me. Just a couple of spots on me.

the damage:

  • Totaled bike
  • damaged parked car that the bike smacked
  • shredded leather jacket
  • tore up gloves
  • shredded reinforced jeans
  • broken toe and slight chip on the top of my foot
  • small spot of road rash caused by my thermals under my jacket.
  • life lesson about breaking too hard

I’ll be back out there sooner rather than later.

Doesn't sound like minor damage...
Good advice on the gear!
Heal well Josh

Welcome to the club. Went down twice in 2009/ ATGATT saved my life both times. Broken wrist on one, dislocated shoulder on the other. Our daughter went down on the WVA turnpike in 2018. ATGATT saved her life too. I try not to judge the people who ride in a wife beater and a doo-rag, but having met pavement twice with unintentional dismounts, I cringe when I see them.

Preach. I ain’t mad at em. I just fear for em. The longer you’re hurt, the longer you’re off the road.
