Title: Photo of your kid that you DONT want
Post by: Dirty Boy on April 13, 2012, 08:47:02 am
Ok, so we laugh about it now but at the time I shat myself.

Nick is new to bikes and only got this KX85 at Christmas. He had been flying around the tracks for hours building confidence and getting to know the bike. I think he got a bit windgat and pushed it too far. The jump was a double and the he came down on the second bump which caught him off guard. The result can be seen.

He ate a lot of dust, scratched his new helmet, got a few minor grazes but the worst was his chest protector pushed in under his rib cage and winded him. He lie there unable to tell me what was wrong, gasping for air. I kakked myself.

Bike got some scratches and the throttle was jammed. All fixed now and both bike and Nick are ready to go again

Ek het al n jong kind verloor so beskou myself baie overprotective met my seun nou. As hy my so laat skrik het is my eerste reaksie
amper paniek en as hy oraait is wil ek hom sommer pakgee. Weird O0
Daai ongeluk lyk erg. kinders is gelukkig baie soepel.

Subie, I know how you feel. My other son, Michael (14) was killed in a cycling accident last year. That is why I kakked myself so much. But I cannot wrap Nick up in cotton wool and not let him live life to the full, especially as I ride.
Best I can do is buy the protective gear, teach him as best I can and let him have respect for machine and environment.

Sorry for your loss too, we are members of the worst club in the world along with HtB and ZAR and Im sure some others here.

ROVRat, jammer, maar dit was vir my ook erg snaaks!! Maar is dit nie tipies van kinders nie?  Dit laat my dink aan my frustrasie met my seun toe hy leer golf speel - het nooit gekyk waarheen hy speel nie, dan loop hy waar hy dink hy geslaan het, en uiteindelik soek ons die hele dag net balle!!

Maar binnekort is daardie jongman van jou 'n ervare ryer.  Geniet dit!!

Oh boy, I cringe when I see photos like this. It's amazing how well kids bounce though  :D
Slaaiblaar, did your youngster keep his teeth? That landing just looks like it's gonna hurt... a lot  :o

Sorry ek kan nie ophou giggle as ek Rovrat se video kyk nie.
Die mannetjie is ernstig oppad en dan stop die mense sommer in die middel van die pad. Julle het hom nie eintlik n gap gelos nie :mwink:
