...high school rugby match last night up in Brighton, TN, and pulling into the high school rugby pitch parking area (which is really a large field with lot's 'o ruts and obstacles). I thought to myself, "Wow...this is gonna be fun!"....until I hit the very first "hidden" rut. Since I came into it at an angle my left front tire immediately dropped into the rut (I didn't ease into the "divot"..I did it at about 10 mph) and popped right out. Well...not preparing myself for the inevitable jolt...the FJ went down and to the left along with my head (and the rest of my body). In a split second multiple events happened:

1. The FJ's tire impacted the far side of the rut/divot/canyon.
2. The FJ lost forward momentum and started up the other side of the rut/chasm/divot/trench.
3. My head (along with the rest of my body) continued in a forward motion at the same velocity as the FJ...PRIOR...to the FJ coming to a stop at the bottom of the ditch/bottomless pit/etc...
4. No problem you say...yeah right!
5. The top left corner of my noggin impacted the wonderful-and-oh-so-handy "Oh *@&%" handle.
6. It was at that moment the universe burst forward in multiple points of lights (re: I saw stars...).
7. Simultaneously...a stream of invectives poured forth (thank goodness my Mom wasn't around).
8. ...and the FJ came to an abrupt stop!

As a result of this a couple of things have happened...I removed the offending handle (none too gently mind you), and I look like Elmer Fudd after getting whacked by Bugs Bunny.

My head hurts....

I think FJoel has covers for that handle. It removes the handle and replaces the hole with a plastic cover so you will not knock you head on that thing. I have done it before as well and it hurts. A poor design if you as me.

You must be a back, forwards could take the hit and not spill their beer or drop their smoke. :mecry: Former second row here :cheers: :rofl:

As a matter of fact I AM a back...Inside Center! That being said I have migrated to the forwards over the past couple of years...8-man now.
