Wow!

I have nightmares about going over an overpass.

Glad that you made the recovery and are here to share the tale.

SVFlyer -

I know a lot about the process you went through to get where you are today. Congratulations sir!

It sure gives you perspective when you think about what you've been able to get through. I know when I'm feeling stressed, like I'm having a bad day, I just have to look in the mirror at some of my scars. That's an instant attitude adjustment!

I also make a lot more time for people these days...

Even after all of that, SVflyer is fearless and unstoppable.

Having never ridden offroad before, he was eager to try our friend's mototrack.....on a KLR

He tried out a few of our other bikes on his first day as well....


Within 24 hours of getting a taste of this kind of riding, he went out and bought a motocross bike.

We're lucky to have you in our group, Sam. You're a real gem.

That is just crazy. I am so glad you lived to tell about it. You have a bulletproof attitude.

Thanks, Zora. I'm lucky to have been taken in by such a great crew, and thanks for posting some good after pics.

There must be something about bridges that SVs don't like.

I also crashed mine on a bridge. Luckily it didn't toss me over the side though.

As has already been posted: Holy %*#&!

Yikes, way to pull through such a scary happening!

Having experienced a few M/C accidents requiring operations and living with nerve damage, limited use/range of motion etc., myself, I surely do empathise but I have nothing compared to many of you real tough bastids!

Cheers, mate!

Holy crap, I remember hearing about your accident on the news back then! I thought you died... seriously.

Glad to see you are back!
