Learned a great lesson today. Don't put your keys in your front pocket when you're rocking in the park.
Hit a massive jump at Abasin, landed it, but crashed when I tried to go from switch to regular to hit the rail and landed straight on my keys that were in my pocket. Can barely walk now and have a MASSIVE bruise on my right quad.
So I ask, where do you put your keys when you ride to keep this from happening?
Um I keep them in my snowboard pant pockets. Since falling on the quad on that side (which is on the "side" and not in front of my quad) is very very rare in the occurrence I try a pipe jib to slide off it and land perfectly on that area. Hard to envision that happening. Not saying it can't just, low chance.
I've had worst. Put my cable lock that is 5/16 thick in my chest pocket, didn't think I'd hit that, bad move. Few years back front foot magically came out of my binding (god knows how) and went down chest first as it was the first thing to hit. Knock the wind out of me and had pain for well over a month internally, felt weird. Nothing on the sensitive outer portion of my body was hurt, like you would feel if a muscle was sore from lifting and could poke it feeling the muscles ripped up. Yet if I tried jumping or hopping, it the pain would throb as if it were dangling on its life line and kept my ass planted from going out till it healed up.
Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.
It depends on where i am riding. But most of the time i will toss them in a locker with the rest of my shit. But if i do ride with them on me, i will put them in a zip pocket in the inside of my jacket or something.
Here's what you need. PIck up the Neff goggle strap pocket. Put your car key that unlocks your door in there. That's all you need. Personally I ride with more crap in my front pockets. Cell, ipod, wallet, keys, chap stick, and whatever else I think I can fit in there.
