Denny, I know how you feel, just different set of circumstances. Hang on, we're going to make it.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I'm nursing a pretty badly swollen forearm and a bruise that is slowly creeping from elbow to wrist. A few days ago, I was letting my Harley down off a jack after changing to a different style front wheel and brake rotor. As the wheel touched the floor, the bike started to topple over- - - -toward the side opposite the kickstand. I caught it as it fell, and leaned into the windshield and handlebars pretty hard to tip it back upright. My ledt forearm took most of the impact. I rode for two days with a friend who had towed his bike up from Florida for our annual Memorial Day weekend ride- - - -something we've done for 5 of the past 6 years. If things continue to improve I probably won't need a doc visit, but I'm keeping a close eye on that tender, swollen spot! I don't need to deal with a blood clot headed toward my heart, or alleged brain!

That do hurt Don.....just lookin' at it. Makes me feel much better.

Tried that about five years back Tim. Did a balancing act on some horses
so I could shove a 4x8 sheet of 3/4 plywood up to the mezzanine. It got
about 45% up there then headed back down on me. It knocked me off the
horse and I fell head first into a bunch of machines that I had piled up
around me. Again, I got lucky, just a bunch of bruised up limbs and dings
on my head.

I'm getting to old and weak to keep my Triumph T100 up if it goes over.
So....I got me a Suzuki TU250, about half the weight.

Boy is this elbow sore, even having a hard time typing.

Wow Denny, sorry to hear and see about your accident. That looks pretty painful. Like the others said, go see a doctor and get checked out. Then set back and take it easy till you mend. I'm sure Cindy will take good care of you.

All have given good advice about being checked out. but be careful about going to sedentary, I did that since the pandemic and I have lost most of my stamina for outside and inside work. : ohwell(

Dang! Sorry to see that. It will make shaving one side of your face tricky, too. Hope it heals soon. As Jerry said, go see a doctor. Don't want any infection there. Good luck!

Ain't gonna be any shaving for a few weeks. At least till all the scabs have come off.

And even though the left arm is fully incapacitated, I did manage to get out to the
barn for a few minutes last night and do a little planning for how I'm gonna approach
the Hood/Boot or what ever you want to call it, that's gonna cover the rear engine on
the Riley Cyclekart I'm building.

Yikes. ouch. I'm happy you got out as easy as you did. I would have busted out my chainsaw and made some firewood out of that old tree.

I nearly "strained" my self through a chainlink fence some years ago whilst moving some railroad ties. I got tired of carrying them, so I put one on my mower/trailer, then figured it could hold 3 of them. It held them just fine. However, as soon as I released the brake on the mower, it took off down the hill at light speed. The stories that you hear about seeing your life flash before your eyes, right before you die is true. But then, my brain went into hyper drive to figure a way out of my current situation I'm about half way down now, going pretty fast. there is a small flat spot with a small pile of dirt on it just to the right of my path of travel. I aim the tractor towards the pile, figuring that by hitting it, I would slow myself down enough to at least bail off. The tractor did a near perfect power slide and stopped before even hitting the dirt pile. wooooo. My bucket of luck got drained out pretty good on that one.


Another quality post.

Got my first ZTR about ten years ago and it came with a roll bar.
First time mowing and I forgot about the bar. Mowed under our closeline at a good clip.
It caught the closeline, did about a 45 degree wheelie, before the line slipped off.
Roll bar was then removed.
