Sad and painful news
So i have some news for everyone. I know i havent been on here in a while, but i figured you all should know this. This past saturday (8/20/2011) i was riding my vulcan home from work. It was a nice day so i decided to take the long way home. Everything was going good. I came up to a curve in the road, probably around 45 degrees or so. I rolled off the throttle and prepared to downshift, when i notoiced that the throttle didnt roll down like it should. The throttle cable stuck inside the sheath, so i hit the kill switch, clutch, and both brakes but it was to late. before i could react i was in a 3 foot deep ditch. The next thing i remember is sliding to a stop on a gravel driveway. A bumpy ambulance ride and 2 hours later i discover that i have a broken L3, which is a vertebrae in my lower back. Other than some nasty road rash and my back im fine, but the bike has definitly seen better days.
