On september 16 of 2007, I took a ride on my 1982 yamaha seca 400 … I had just synced the carbs and the bike was runnin good… so good.. it caught me by surprise. As I went through an s turn, the bike accelerated better than expected. It was dark and my headlight was angled too low, which gave me little time to see the back side of the s-curve. I hit the brakes and skidded into the curb which dumped me into the grassy median. I would guess I was going 35 mph when I hit. As I fell, my left hand instinctively tried to catch my fall. Bad idea, because I heard my forearm shatter like a tree branch snapping, then I rolled 1 time onto my right shoulder (fracturing it). I’ve been riding since 82 and this is my first accident.
