    Holy fuck dude! To see you riding again after that proves you are indestructible, both physically and mentally. You are Superman.

    That is remarkable. I had a crash as well that changed my life, though it didn't turn out nearly as serious as yours.

    What I learned, like you, is that I am alright with my life and who I am. Time is completely relative; you can relive your entire life over the time span of 3/10 of a second and 2 feet horizontally at 50 MPH.

    Wow. I ride that freeway quite a bit, and will look at it so differently now after reading this thread. Amazing, and I'm glad you came out ok. Well, you know what I mean. That was a remarkable story, and photos. Words can't explain it. I don't think I will let my wife see this thread or I will find my bike sold when I get home from work someday. Thank you for sharing your brave and scary tale.
