Wow mate, simply amazing ........

I can never imagine how i would have reacted, but your attitude towards the accident, and your life afterwards is simply unbelievable.

You are lucky that you survived and Hats off to your Mrs for being there every step of the way.

/Salute

I truly amazed and have much respect for you.
I believe I would continue riding if I could.
My problem is with people like this not paying for their crimes.
Here in Florida we have enough people making left turns in front of riders.
I know here a crime like that would be a few years pregnant or not.

I guess I can't get over so many people getting away with their dumb choices........

I can't conjure up the words to say how amazed I am at your survival, humbled by your courage, and inspired by your attitude. Best wishes to you and your wife.

You really should wear more clothes than just an apron.

(just kidding)

Awesome post. From saving your own life to your recovery attitude and even riding again. You are an inspiration to us all.

Huge respect

Thanks for sharing your story, brilliant to hear. Just out of curiosity when you got your new leg did they also happen to install titanium bollocks

Stay well!

Stumpy.............you are one tough SOB! Good on ya! Cool to see that you're riding again.
As for the perp, you have a much different attitude than I suppose I'd have, I'd want to kill the worthless cunt. Slowly. With at least as much pain as I had gone through.
But that's just me.


Sounds like you got yourself a real doll for a wife also!

Happy Riding to the two of you!!!!!!!!!!

Chris

Gonna watch your story on YouTube in a few.

The start of this thread is inspiration. Your " for the parking " T-shirt is fucking hilarious!

Your new bride is gold, as is your positive attitude.

Rock , you do, rock on you shall.

Incredible story, Blair. You have a resolve that is unmeasurable. I watched your youtube video, and I was quite taken at the strength and mental stability that you and your lovely wife have. Your wife is truly a great person, and not just because she's Canadian .

I am a firefighter and medical first responder as well, and I want to thank you for sharing your truly inspirational story.

I look forward to ride reports!
