Silver sulfidine is what you need for your palm, but iirc it's prescription only.

I had my gloves in my bag. It was a little chilly and I thought about stopping to put them but said fawk it... oops. I'm glad I did have my leather on, it took a good scrape that otherwise would have been on my left shoulder without it. My leather also lost a zipper on the sleave from grinding on the road.
Before I left for work the night before, I looked at my mesh cross train shoes but then decided on the boots even though it was warm out. I'm glad I did!!! I can't imagine what would have happened to my foot with the flimsy mesh shoes on!

Damn, glad those are just flesh wounds... BTW thanks for reminding me why I always gear up, I have been very tempted to wear a half helmet and no jacket with the recent weather.

I
hit a deer
last September (? can't remember) doing about 60. You were fortunate to get banged up as little as you did. The only reason I have my right big toe is because I was Wearing my steel toe boots because I was going to work. If I ever get back to riding (which this awesome weather is not helping the itch) I will be wearing my full gear. Full face helmet FTW.

I'm glad you're ok and you got up with out too many bumps. Didn't break any ribs or anything did ya? Good luck sleeping for the next week or so.

I remember reading that thinking how bad that would suck. Well, yeah, it sucks! Nothing broke on me but my pride! Toe is still tender, and the road rash on my hand is really irritating.

That sucks !! I remember hearing a statistic that 90% of all accidents happen less than 3 miles from home !! The first time I layed my bike down was less than a mile from home , an my best friend got into a nasty crash with his bike only 2 blocks from home !! Glad your ok , deer and motorcycles usually ends up a lot worse !!

that's what they preached to us at ABATE training. that most accidents normally happen close to home. i'd think its because people feel safe and put their guard down. SEE - Search, Evaluate, Execute.

Yeah, I remember just being glad I walked away. Good luck on healing. Pain killers worked for me.
