SKINGRAFT PICS - Warning: A bit graphic!

Well, here it is 6 weeks after the accident from Pizza Boy running my ass over and the skingraft from the 3rd degree burns. The pic shows the progression of the graft and the roadrash that surrounds the graft down to my hip.
The graft itself is 100% healed, but the roadrash is still healing.

This is what can happen if you wear a Joe Rocket Pheonix mesh jacket. Do yourself a favor and stay away from mesh jackets. The polyester in them can burn into your skin (as it did with me) and they rip apart way to easy when you are sliding across the concrete.

Glad to hear you're on the mend! :thumbsup

On a side note, do you have to wear your pants crooked like that all the time to avoid rubbing on your hip wounds? You may start a new fashion trend.

Stay away from the mesh jackets! It ripped apart on impact wit hthe ground.

And no, I don't always wear my shorts that way. I usually have a bandage over the hip roadrash.

My textile (mesh) jacket has held up perfectly in two crashes so far. Barely even a scuff on it. It is a brand that you dont have in the USA. The brand is DriRider. Its an Australian brand.

I agree that a lot of textile jackets out there arent very safe, however, I think that there are a few out there that rival the protection given by leathers. Plus my jacket is 100% waterproof, very breathable and has removable warm liners for use in winter.

Hope you get better soon mate!

Duc,It's even more pain knowing that this could have been prevented with a leather jacket.

Duc,

Sorry to see the discomfort you are in. Even though I always wore leather, I will not ride on the street like I used to. Even now though I want a street bike sooo bad! It won't happen.

Too bad no GP in 04. We'll have to hook up in NF or some other track, another time.

Keep healing up!.
