Compare the Colors ...

In real life it's even more pronounced. Click the image for a large view:

Badly bruised fingers

This is actually still really painful, especially the right index finger. Joints of thumb, index, and mid finger are badly sprained, probably some ligament / tendon damage as well.

Alright, not too bad for a get off from the bike. I can use my hand already, fracture was not dislocated, therefore I could get the removable splint, the rest will heal over time.

  1. Quite she shade of green showing up in the picture. Hopefully it will be a quick heal for you and won't pain you too long.

    Get ready for show and tell this weekend......

    1. It's really hard to capture the difference with a camera - in real life it's much more pronounced ... hopefully it'll get better soon!

  2. Guido:

    Mrs Skoots broken wrist was sheared off. She had to wear the "fixed" hard cast for a few weeks, but now she has the splint removeable one.

    you were very lucky. You never mentioned anything about the deer. Did you get deer steaks ?

    1. Mine is "just" a crack in the bone right at the wrist. I had the same on the other arm when I was 15 or so. Took three weeks to heal.

      The deer ran away, it barely clipped my front wheel. Just enough to throw me into the highside. The beast was very efficient.

  3. I didn't notice the green tint until Trobairitz mentioned it. It looks and sounds painful. I was a bit curious on how the deer fared in such a collision.

    1. Regarding the deer: there was no fur or blood anywhere, maybe a few hairs, but that's it. He/she (?) barely clipped the front wheel, just enough to push it to the right, so that my own forward momentum kicked me into the highside.

    2. Thank you, I was wondering about how severe the collision was. We have a lot of animals that seem to like wandering around on the road though a moose collision can severely damage if not total an 18-wheeler so a motorbike may not stand a chance.

      Hope you heal quickly. It sounds like you are meeting the others in SF, say hello...

    3. I guess if I had hit the deer full on at higher speed worse things could have happened. Or not, you never know. As it is, just clipping the front wheel is about the worst an animal can do to a bike - I rather hit head on and keep the bike stable than highside it.
