I am sad to read that another inmate has been injured. This is a painful reminder of the dangers that we face everyday on the road. I for one, sometimes forget. Good luck with the rehab.

You've got a lot of inmates here rooting for you. It is hard to make sense of these things, and even harder to come to the realization that sometimes you can't and have no option but to push forward anyway. From your honest, direct posts and clear character, I'm sure you'll do better than most would in your situation. Keep pushing, and if it helps when you are feeling down, know that we're here for you.

I turn 60 in a few days and I have been riding for 45 years. There is a bond right there.
Best wishes to you.
Ride hard or stay home.

My DL650 was Safety Orange Ha!

It is a bit of a standing joke with me and a F800 GS owner I know that we were both riding the bikes with the safety orange paint scheme when we were hit. His damage was not as bad but we both believe that the "safety" part of orange paint is highly overrated.

Thanks for your thoughts. had more therapy today as the hospital is on a time line with the insurance co.

Ride save and choose a color you like and don't put much faith in its name.

I think all of us think of "what might/could happen as we ride. Every time I see oncoming traffic wanting to turn left I try to plan a safe route out if they turn in front of me. The same with stop signs and lane hangers but we are at risk at all times. Keep you head up my brother and I am kinda with L.B.S., maybe in time you may like the wind in your face again with an extra wheel. I wish you a quick recovery.

Holy cow. Very sorry to learn of this. Words escape me.

The accident has cost me my right leg above the knee and I am now a paraplegic. This is a dissapointment for a guy who has ridden for almost 40 years. I wanted to share this with the people who know me so they will know why I am not around.

The wreck distroyed my new 2012 DL650 which was a 60th birthday present to myself.

I am still around and able to communicate because of my newer HJC full face helmet and Olympia long jacket. That safety gear left the upper body totally intact and undamaged. Buy the best gear you can. It works, I can attest to that. The hospital said that jacket was the most difficult they ever had to cut apart.

So for now its rehab to get back to my new normal.

Be careful out there. and keep me in your thoughts.

Terry - sorry to hear the news of your accident. Therapy can be tough both physically and emotionally. Make the most of what you have in hand; the Karmic Wheel will roll your way again.
I hope you have family support, it means a lot.
I'm one of the lucky ones and had that after a 95% fatality crash a year ago at the age of 66.
You're in my thoughts and I know that you will exceed all their expectations.
Love is blind, marriage is an eye-opener.
