One can only hope you find some cute young thing to kiss and make it better!
Sounds horrible. All of my mishaps haven't involved reproductive bits! Get well soon!

Did you report this to the police, it sounds like the guy may have done it on purpose, and if he did, he may have done it to others, you may be able to find his license plate number from that.

The Police can make a note about it at any rate, they can watch for reports about a White SUV taking out Motorcyclists, so the next time it happens, there may be more information.

Short of wearing an athletic supporter when riding, there isn't much we can do to protect ourselves down there for this kind of crash. We are sitting legs open on top of a tank of gas and flying into a whack of instruments.

Get well soon.

That valve cover makes it look like it is powered by a V6, what are the specs on that thing?! Now I'm going to have to google "EPBH-B1-SW"...

Bad news there otis24, hope you and the boys are healing promptly and be riding again soon
Thanks for the "heads up" about protecting the nads. That swollen testicle must've been quite a spectacle.

Man that's bad luck there otis24, glad you're on the mend. I've had this happen but not quite to the ground... but it is one of the reasons I wear a helmet-cam (sony actioncam) now... maybe I should add my infielder's cup to my riding protection :0

Where did this happen? Didn't find your location on your profile...

This was in San Jose Ca. I'm doing much better. The hematoma hasn't fully subsided so my left nut is still bigger than the right. But, it's slowly normalizing. At least it's small enough that it doesn't get in the way all time.

Reminds me of an old joke -

"Should I be concerned that I have one testicle that's bigger than the other two?"

Hope you feel better soon.

My general practitioner told me once about one of his clients who broke his pelvis in similar crash.

I had a 70 to 0 emergency stop the other day on beltway, stopped 3 feet clear. Judging by your story my 4-pot upgrade have paid off.

Time to make a trip to WA, OR, CO, CA, or FL for medical supplies. That stuff does wonders for that kind of pain.
