GA I broke my right leg in 2007 (sprial fracture as well) came off the XR, foot got caught & twisted...snap.
I had 6 months off the bike to heal, was a bit worried about the pin & screws but still riding...hurts like hell ATM, this cold weather is not good, was ok last year but this winter must be colder or something.
When I hit the ROO last year not far from where I broke the leg panic set in for the few seconds in case I ended up in hospital again but as luck would have only a bent front rim & a case of "shit scared"
I'm sure you will be back on a bike within a year but like me you might go a bit slower as we don't bounce like we did before.
Endone will be your friend, my leg hurt like hell at night & was only getting a few hours sleep....back to work after 3 weeks & driving at 4 weeks but was on crutches for around 3 months....much to my wifes disapointment.
