Oh and the ride felt awesome! But I will be patient and not start riding again until I fully heal. I do not want to screw up the progress I've made.



Man, this is really great to see your recovery.

What's funny is because of all the rehab I've been doing my shifting action has never been better. I used to have to use my entire leg because my ankle wasn't that flexible. But now it just requires a flick of the foot.


I really want to ride but I'm also a athlete and the down time has been killing me. So I've been focusing all my efforts into rehab and anything that might interfere with it I've nixed. For now...

Good news that the bike is back and well. Now that the test ride is out of the way, you are doing well to concentrate on rehab...

Hi Bracky

That is so awesome you made a full recovery ! Although climbing that mountain looks like fun, it is an awful lot of work, I think I would rather do it on the bike

Hi Bracky,

Yes it certainly is, and I remember you well. I wondered where you had gone, since I did not see you in the other forum for quite a while. I just saw this thread about your accident today, when I saw your name Bracky72 , well, it all added up real quick. If I had seen this earlier I would have written. But there was an advantage to not seeing until today, I was quickly able to skip to your last post of climbing the mountain and knew everything turned out good Hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of the new bike. BTW, I ride a Dual Sport also, seems like we both have found all the fun stuff to do

Mike

Heal up!

Your attitude is fantastic, and will help you heal.

It is so easy to be vengeful in that situation.

PS-yes, your lady is a keeper!

Glad to see you made a full recovery.
I think its a good idea to not let the fact the guy got away unpunished eat you up. He knows what he did, and always will, let it eat HIM up.

The important thing is that you got over the injury, which could just as well happened dirt riding and having a bad crash.

Just read the whole thread. Like seeing an entire season on DVD in one sitting, complete with happy ending except for catching the bad guy.

Glad you're back on top.

I used to ride in blue jeans, but no longer. Like you said, better protection may not have made a difference in your case, but it certainly can't hurt.
