ouch-picked up myfist bike injury in years whilst teaching my 5 year old on his ktm motocrosser-he wouldnt put his foot down and drag in the bends so i decided to show him,i get on the tiny bike and proceed to do a slow turn with one foot on the ground ,within a second all of me was on the ground and my bare leg slides up the expansion chamber(i was wearing shorts)
i now have a 15 inch 2nd degree burn up my leg which hurts like crazy with no one to blame but me.me the safety freak who never rides without boots ,jeans ,gloves and helmet:( :frownthre :frownthre :frownthre

I don't mean to laugh at your pain.... but :roflblack :roflblack :roflblack :roflblack :roflblack

That'll teach ya. On a more serious note, if they really are 2nd degree burns, clean that up and bandage it. Infection is a HUGE concern on big burn areas.

lets just hope he doesn't equate dragging in the turns with 2nd degree burns..

wait till he starts riding street and you start cussing at him for dragging a foot through the turns..
