[QUOTE=FZ1Tom]Let me guess, you were wearing shorts. Tsk, tsk.......I strongly support motorcycling, and by all means encourage you learning and riding, but PLEASE, PLEASE, invest in and wear good riding gear. Helmet, gloves, leather or textile riding jacket, boots and riding pants (at a minimum, sturdy jeans), in that order. It doesn't cost a fortune, except the helmet, and that will be worth every hard earned penny you spent.
My helmet cost about as much as my jacket will cost (have yet to save up for the jacket) -- both are about $250. I always wear long sleeves and my ski jacket (only jacket I have), boots, jeans, and gloves. I will be riding my bike to school (NURSING SCHOOL -- heeee he he he).
Our friend gave us a good quote: Riding a motorcycle is just about as much fun as you can have with your pants on
:chuckle -- too funny
If you could tell your BF that you DROPPED HIS BIKE ,
then it should be easy to tell your dad
that you are seeing the doc for the burn... plus he is GOING to SEE it one day and then the truth will come out eventually. But I also like the idea of going with "female problems"... than ask the Dr office to make sure they use ICD-9 codes for any paperwork and pray that the explanation of benefits doesn't spill your beans to your dad.
Good luck and hope you are healing well!
