    Sudden catastrophic front rim failure going about 50 on my SCSW Boxer. Broken neck and lots of road rash. Bike is still not fixed.

    Well about a month ago, I was going to get the mail, perhaps 50 bike lengths away. The lobstermen were working on their traps, there was a new sternman with a pitbull.
    I coudn't see inside the stack of lobster traps, as they were shaped in a c pattern.

    Well I'm going about 15 mph and that's the last I remember. Broken collarbone, cracked ribs, mild concussion. The bill came to over &7000.00 dollars.

    And to make matters worse the new sternman worked one day and never showed up again.

    Did the dog run out of the traps and get you?

    I was almost got it by a dog, long time past. It was non-motorize bike. I had on the back my camping gear and a disassembled two piece fishing pole with bandannas on the ends. One was vertical and the other horizontal on the rear carrier. Nipping at my right pant leg for a while the beast did. No farmer to call off the dog. After a while I guess the dog was slowing up, then upside the head for em, not intentionally though. Away I was looking back at the dog turning around!

    I was showing my bike to my buddy Pete in front of his house. We both had Whizzers, but this was my first Briggs bike. Well I forgot to tighten the nut and bolt on the front brake arm and after a 30mph or so pass I hit the front brake lever and the backing plate spun. It wound the brake cable around the axle bending the right side of the handlebars down about ten inches. I rode it down to about 20mph before I went down. Landed on my right hip where I had a large metal tape measure clipped to my pocket. Slid on that tape measure forever and came out with a bruise and a small scrape on my elbow. This was in the 80's and a few years later on the same bike I went down after braking in a turn with gravel. I still get asphalt coming to the surface on the back of my left hand.
