Sorry to hear that you got burned, Harley!
I have never understood the need for double speed bumps. They always seem like overkill to me and this time they definitely were a safety hazard for you.
Get well soon, and try to get some silvadene cream for your leg. That stuff is awesome!

Silvadene is good stuff. That's what I used when I was dumb enough to ride wearing shorts, no socks, and left my shoe laces hanging out (I usually tuck my laces into my shoe).
One of my laces wrapped around the pedal somehow and I tried to jerk it free while I was still coasting downhill. I kicked forward and, in the process, laid my leg right on the muffler. That's no fun.

One rider on this forum was hit while riding his motorized bicycle through a parking lot, by a speeding car driver. I like speed bumps. The extra tall speed bumps are best, because they rip the guts out of those stupid low-rider trucks.

Most speed bumps here have small gaps for motorcycle wheels and for rain water flow.

Arrow Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I bet you can. It is sold by a lot of different names. Silver Sulfadiazene (burn cream treatment, a thick white paste) worked for me when I burned my leg on a go-kart. The clutch locked up when I got on it, and the cart took off, dragging me by my foot and burning my thigh on the cooling fins.

I have to totally agree with you on the need for speed bumps, but the double ones that are only a couple of feet apart are overkill and have caused problems for me in the past. Motorcycles hate them...

I fly over those without thinking about it on my Boxer bike sometimes. Don't need to terrorize a neighbor hood lol. That is why they put them there. I remember on my hard tailed bike never like those things.

That's awesome. My wife is always mad because I won't fly on airplanes and won't leave the country for vacation. Maybe we should visit the US Virgin Islands. I don't know much about it. You can send me any information you want to.
