A lesson he (hopefully) won't soon forget.

I've never done it on a motorcycle (thankfully I was wearing gear when I went sliding down the road at 17 years old) but I have done it on a bicycle as a kid, and left a bunch of my knees and elbows behind on the road. I spent a couple weeks holed up in the basement in front of the TV trying not to move, to avoid breaking the scabs.

My son was wearing full gear off-road (helmet, neck brace, chest protector, gloves, boots) and went over the handlebars on asphalt at about 40mph (he passed me on my dual sport, I looked down when passed me and I was doing 35-36). The bike did two forward flips over him while he slid. He broke three ribs, a wrist, and a thumb, stitches in his leg, and a little road rash. The doctors and nurses at the hospital looked at the equipment and at him and nodded, "that equipment saved his life."

EXPERIENCE is a TOUGH TEACHER; first, YOU are given the LESSON, then next, YOU LEARN the LESSON(s). It could have been worse glad only abrasions for the young man.
